Kei Igawa named captain, Opening Day starter

Apparently, the Yankees have named Kei Igawa associate team captain. He will also start on Opening Day.

Please explain to me what the Yankees are doing here.

Really, Igawa? Igawa of the 6.66 ERA. Igawa of the 2-4 record.

I am stunned here. I really am at a loss for words. With guys like CC Sabathia and Chien-Ming Wang on the team, this really makes no sense to me.

Leave it to the Yankees to do something stupid here.

Frankly, Joe Girardi should be fired. This seals the deal.

Only he could make such a terrible decision. Where is Joe Torre when we need him?

Obviously he's still in Los Angeles, but the Yankees really miss him!

Look - the Yankees have spent a lot of money on Igawa and I can see why they want to get a return on their investment. But let's be real here. The guy is terrible and should never be near a major league mound again.

Seriously, just get him out of my face.

Yeah, yeah. April Fools! The first letter of each paragraph spells out "April Fool's." I probably could've thought of something better to do eventually, but I figured I'd stay with the Kei Igawa April Fools precedent I set last year. He's just that much of a joke.

Mr. Igawa's been quite decent this year.
Maybe we can trade him for Roy Halladay. Or Josh Hamilton.

I just heard we're bringing Sheffield back. (April Fool's.)

I wouldn't be surprised if they actually did.
