"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One–


We’ve seen it before so no need to get into it. And Hughes wasn’t terrible exactly. The offense didn’t do much either.

The Jays were going to have to beat the Yanks at some point.

Final: Jays 5, Yanks 2.

Let’s just hope that was their one win for the series.

"Wasn't terrible, exactly"? How about this line

25 games, 4-13, ERA-4.91, innings pitched 135, hits 152, Base on balls, 40. What exactly constitutes terrible?

the Yanks are settling in to the rhythm of the Futility Waltz: one step forward, two steps back, one step forward, two steps back.

It's true that Hughes wasn't downright terrible last night. But it's also true (IMHO) that he's fucking awful generally and painful to watch. It constantly seems as though he can't muster the mental energy to stay focused on what he needs to do to get people out. Or maybe I'm just making that part up, all I know is it's painful to watch. I will be happy to see him go and very disappointed if they take the risk of giving him a qualifying offer.

Hm, I dunno. One year for, what, $14 million? That does seem like too much. But I bet he wouldn't take it anyway -- he has to be looking for a long contract at this stage of his career.

Hughes should go to the NL and pitch in San Diego. Those fly balls become outs and he turns into a 20 game winner. Worked for his buddy Ian Kennedy.
