  1. Alright Chris…4 blogs is pushing it. Right now its three but one is just copy and paste and the other is opening after the ASG so its good now.

  2. What do you think of Phil Hughes out of the bullpen? Phil Hughes threw his fastball out of the bullpen with 95 mph that very fast but I know his fastball is straight but Phil Hughes got a good knucklecurve!!

    • He was great tonight! He just had great stuff. However, he is a started. No matter who were talking about, if somebody is moved from the rotation to the pen, they are going to be pretty good. Still, Hughes is a started, but for now Im okay with him in the pen as long as it’s not for too long.

  3. That was the same dilemma with Chien-Ming Wang also with being in the bullpen after coming off the disabled list but he was always a starter!! The Yankees have an abundance of starters but that includes Alfredo Aceves who is the seventh starter on this team!!! I like having depth in our minor league farm system and our major league club in have enough pitching!! But there was always a Joba debate all the time too!!!
