Phil Hughes, Step UP: Yanks-Rangers Gamer III

I have no problem admitting that I enjoyed watching Yu Darvish pitch last night. Yankee batters were off balance all game long, chasing 96 mph — sometimes wild — fastballs only to be flummoxed by Bugs Bunny 78 curves, rendering a fine start by Kuroda for naught. The Captain and Cano (nice ring, that.. sounds like a light-hearted crime drama) each doubled and singled but Yu ruled the night.

Phil Hughes has been decidedly mediocre and received a gift win his last start against the Twins. I suppose the highlight of his outing was he lasted for 103 pitches. Scott Feldman gets the rock for the Rangers.

Comment away.

  • Pineda out for the rest of the season… ouch. That’s an awful blow, I thought the trade was a fantastic one at the beginning of the season.

  • Wait, did you say anterior? Hughes gets one more shot, but I’m thinking that Andy Pettitte better saddle up his white horse might soon.

  • As long as it wasn’t posterior. The Yankees have had enough of that ligament, thank you Carl.

  • Krueg-Ku.
    Still trying to work out the break from the “traditional” form, but it works for me for sure.

    He kicked our ass.

  • 10-8.
    Blah.
    I guess as long as we hover above .500 for the next month or so, everything will work out?
    I mean, the team overall has been pretty abysmal but still 10-8.
    I don’t know. It doesn’t feel like this team has it. Again.

  • At least they didn’t sign Pujols.

  • We already have several Pujol’s…
    i.e. Non-performing “super stars”
