Yankees: Hughes vs. Huff

Finally, after the New York Yankees 6-4 win over the White Sox yesterday, skipper Joe Girardi officially demoted pitcher Phil Hughes from the rotation to the bullpen. Even though Hughes gave Girardi no other choice, but to demote him, I want to be clear that he is not the only starter who has failed to live […]

Yankees cannot afford a Hughes problem again

Don’t you hate it when you are right?  What about when you are over and over again?

After Tuesday night’s game got bumped making Wednesday a doubleheader, the older of the two starting pitchers traditionally picks the game he wants to start in. Kuroda picked […]
