Nothing New Here: Hank Speaks and Kei Sucks

The Yankees played an exhibition game against the University of South Florida. That's right, THE University of South Florida. The Yankees were dominating, with Phil, Joba and IPK combined for five scoreless innings, with a hit and six whiffs. Then, all of a sudden, the man who needs no introduction, Kei Igawa entered. He promptly walked two, plunked the next guy, then gave up a grand slam. But don't worry, it was to the great Eric Baumann. I mean, there's no shame in giving up a long home run to Eric Baumann.

Also, Hank the Tank voiced his opinion yet again. Hank spoke profoundly of his thoughts on our friends up in Boston. Here's what he said:
“Red Sox Nation?” Hank says. “What a bunch of [expletive] that is. That was a creation of the Red Sox and ESPN, which is filled with Red Sox fans. Go anywhere in America and you won’t see Red Sox hats and jackets, you’ll see Yankee hats and jackets. This is a Yankee country. We’re going to put the Yankees back on top and restore the universe to order.” (Source)
Well, that's about the best thing he possibly could have said.
