Igawa not worried

Apparently Kei Igawa isn't too concerned about his awful outing this afternoon.

From Bryan Hoch:

"I'm not too worried at this point," Igawa said through an interpreter. "It is the first game. I'm able to realize what I need to work on. That is a positive, moving forward."

"He got himself in trouble with a walk and hit a guy," Girardi said. "He didn't finish off the slider, and he got in some bad counts, which hurt, but it's early. Your pitches aren't going to be as sharp now as they're going to be in a month."
Yes, it's the first spring game, but Igawa has been in camp for a while now and he apparently is very prepared. He is also part of a $46 million investment, so the Yankees expect more from him. Giving up a grand slam to a pinch hitter on a college team is inexcusable.

If I were in Igawa's position, I'd certainly be worried.

Igawa is clearly delusional In one of the other articles, he claimed he had good control yesterday. I don't even know what to say about that.
