Turns out Phil Hughes is just bad, not hurt

Recommended Posts

Joba lost some velocity when he was being bounced between starter and reliever too, so maybe that has something to do with it. Maybe the bullpen would be the better location for him.

Joba lost velocity after he hurt his shoulder.

Hughes can take his time....we have Super Bartolo and Freddy.

Right. Because Hughes gets shut down with a problem that most every other pitchers pitch through, he is all of a sudden going to become a great starting pitcher.

Dream on.

The most likely thing is that he stubs a toe and goes back on the 60 day DL-that is what has defined his career.

Ike Davis is right next to him

If Phil Hughes had to deal with the Mets doctors, they'd have amputated his pitching arm.

Yanks should send Jeter to the Mets doctors

Shouldn't you fags be fighting over whether 2 runs in 5 innings (none over the last 4) is good or bad with his terrible "peripherals" tonight?

I watched and I thought he looked terrible, slightly better than the atrocious outings in the beginning of the season.

2 swings and misses all night- non of which on his fastball. Indians hit the ball hard....very lucky it was only 2 runs.

This is a big thread for the Yankees 5th starter.

Davis, Murphy, Tejada, Wright, Neiwenhuis, Thole, Duda, Gee, Niese, Parnell, among other.

They actually started a game earlier in the year where every position was home grown. They have filled in injuries with home grown talent throughout the year.

I said talent

Why do Yankee Nation gets wrapped around this?

No big market team can solely survive on home grown talent. It is nice when it happens, but not something you can expect to contend year in and year out.

Having pride in homegrown talent in baseball is one of the more ridiculous things fans beat their chests about. And if we're going to argue about it, the Yankees best player, and a top 10 player in baseball, is home grown.

And I would take Niese or Gee over Hughes any day.

So would I. But the first guy you listed we were told was the next Don Mattingly. He cant even catch a pop out without injuring himself. if you're going to get on fans for overrating Hughes I can do the same for Ike Davis, who's terrible.
