Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Welcome back, Kei Igawa

Ian Kennedy got sent down to Scranton, and Kei Igawa will likely be called up to take his spot in the rotation. Uh, boy. I wish Igawa the best, but I fear he'll be as inconsistent as ever.

Darrell Rasner got off to a rough start today, but settled down and had a very good outing. I hope he can keep it up. It would be a great story, if Rasner and Igawa, two guys tossed on the wayside for young studs Kennedy and Hughes, end up leading the Yanks to victory. Hey, it could happen. Maybe they'll be the Aaron Small and Shawn Chacon of this year.

Andy Phillips did not play for the Bats yesterday. He was out of the starting lineup, likely just to give him a day off. At one point, he was standing in the on-deck circle as a pinch-hitter, but the inning ended before he got to bat, and they decided to leave the pitcher in.

He started at 3B today. He was 2 for 5 with a double. Alas, the Bats fell in 11 innings. (Thanks a lot, Todd Coffey.)

Paul Janish was 1 for 4 with a walk. It's really cute how his family and friends keep e-mailing the Bats radio guys from Cypress, Texas. He's got a hometown fan club.
