Ian Kennedy Signs With Royals

Ian Kennedy didn't exactly "kill it" for the Yankees. Mind you, he didn't get much of a shot a the MLB level during his time in pinstripes, but in those 59.2 innings his ERA was 6.03 and WHIP was 1.676.

So some people may be surprised to find out that IPK just signed a five year contract, worth $70 million, with the Kansas City Royals.

Ian has thrown better since leaving New York, putting up an ERA of 4.25 and WHIP of 1.326, but this contract goes to show you how much pitching is worth these days. So any Yankees fan out there upset that Brian Cashman has yet to make a deal for a young starter should chill out.
