"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice



Phil Hughes got his tits lit tonight to the tune of seven runs in less than an inning of work. Our old chum, Raul Ibanez, hit a grand slam against him–and later hit another one–as the Mariner’s sailed to a 12-2 beat down in the Boogie Down.

Nothing but hurt feelings for the teetering Hughes.

Let’s just move on, shall we?

Tits licked. Never heard that one before. Can I use it?

As for the game, been following position players who pitch for years. Just love those kind of games that for some reason cause the manager to put a guy on the mound, risking his career (Canseco) and for a second giving the fans shot of fear that the game could never end. For you trivial fans, who was the only player to pitch and hit four hrs in a game, hint he also played for the Yankees? Mark Witen. Yup. I should write an article on this. Have the research, but not the interest anymore. Teddy Baseball is on the list as is Stan the Man who was a pitcher, originally.

In my lifetime, Rocky Colavito(2.2 innings), Wade Boggs(, Nick Swisher (he hit a homer in the game, too), Mike Aldrete (Gooden got hammered) and the Babe, though he was a pitcher playing out of position. May be others, but my files are in the basement.

Mantle wanted to pitch, but Casey wouldn't let him. Had a wicked knuckleball.

Man I am sick of Phil Hughes.

"I don't like watching video. I don't like watching myself get beat."

Oh really? How do you think we feel, Phil? That was a glistening, steaming pile. Watch the damn video and at least try to improve, you big puss.

If Hughes is pitching for his next contract, he might end up signing for a 1/2 eaten bologna sandwich.
