With all the terrible press Kei Igawa has received from his failures
as a Yankee, he has done pretty well in Scranton. In his last 10
outings in the regular season, he has gone 6-2 with a 3.15 era and in
the playoffs last night, he was even better
giving up 1 earned run in 7 innings against the best hitting team in
the International league. On top of it, it was a Red Sox team he
pitched against and being a Yankee, there⁈⁚s always pressure when you
face a Red Sox team. The Red Sox team he faced last night is loaded
with talent. The Pawtucket Red Sox⁈⁚s hitting dominated the league this
year. Their hitting led the league in almost every category and Igawa
pitched lights out against them. The Yankees should give Igawa another
chance on the major league level before the year is over. I⁈⁚m not sure
how much longer the minor league playoffs will be but if he could even
get one start in for the Yankees, then do it.


You have to give Igawa credit for not folding it up and calling it a
day. I thought he⁈⁚d never pitch well again but he proved himself by
being named Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Pitcher of the Year.
Even with the contract he signed with the Yankees he⁈⁚s still out there
trying to prove he belongs. It seems to me that he ⁈Å"does⁈  have the
mental fortitude to pitch on the major league level.


What an awesome feeling that must have been, being a fan in the
stands watching Igawa send the side down in order in four of his last
five innings and retiring the last 10 batters he faced. He looks very
small in stature when I⁈⁚ve seen him pitch but he⁈⁚s actually 6⁈⁚1, 210 lbs.
He doesn⁈⁚t look like he⁈⁚s that big. That has to be a mistake. He looks
pretty skinny too. I⁈⁚m sure Cashman, who has been a failure in every
way for the Yankees as a general manager is happy about Igawa⁈⁚s
performance. For now though, Igawa is the man.

cashman was right all along that igawa can help the yankees, unfortunately not the new york yankees but the yankees minor league team.

Come on man, you have to give him another chance. You never know. This could be it. He was named pitcher of the year for Scranton.

unless he changes the way he pitches, he will not be successful in the majors. Hopefully being the pitcher of the yr will allow the yankees to trade him.

Igawa pitched against the best hitting team in the International
League. The Pawtucket Red Sox dominated every one in their path and he
shut them down. That has to account for something.

Igawa is nothing better than a AAA pitcher.

we can give him a chance but i kinda noticed, some pitchers (like igawa) when they are good at the minors choke when they are in a major league game.
