And starting for the Yankees, No. 33, Brian Bruney
Now here’s the story with this one. Brian Bruney is starting for the Yankees instead of Ian Kennedy due to weather concerns. A Yankees spokesman said that Joe Girardi was
concerned about a looming rain storm that was projected to hit the Kauffman
Stadium area shortly after the scheduled 7:10 p.m. start time.
If the rain passed and play resumed, the Yankees said, Kennedy would then
pitch. Interesting move by Girardi, but what kind of message do you take from this if you’re Bruney?
UPDATE: And the parade of relievers continues on, as here’s Billy Traber. I guess Girardi figures if he can get four innings from his bullpen and then use Kennedy for four or five, that’d be good enough. But there’s a giant green blob on the radar and that might be a bit optimistic.
