The Yankees return to New York tonight for the first time since June 20th when they played the Mets. I don’t know about you, but I feel like they haven’t been home in ages. Anyway, tonight Phil Hughes is set to make his first start since being skipped in the rotation recently. I wouldn’t be surprised if he comes out a little too strong in the first few innings because of the extra rest, but hopefully he can settle in and have a good game. The Yankees will be opposed by Seattle’s Cliff Lee in what appears to be a fabulous pitching match-up. Phil Hughes, my favorite Yankee pitcher, versus Cliff Lee, one of the best starters in the game and also one of my favorite pitchers. I’m excited!
The Yankees are back home!
