My tumultuous relationship Hughes is no big secret, as I have made a blog out of regularly tearing him to shreds.
Ok so maybe I am being dramatic, but Hughes has indisputably been a favorite subject featured in some of my most popular articles. Some have even called me a bully, as I have written about Hughes a total of 113 times. Wow!
So, what should be a joyous occasion is accompanied by a bit ambiguity too.
As the Minnesota sports media might not realize it yet, but they just got handed a pitcher that will give them oodles of storylines for the next three seasons.
Hey maybe Hughes will make me eat my words, and actually earn the $28 million bucks the Twins are paying him.
But if there were a spread on whether the Twins will come out winners from signing Hughes, you can bet the odds would say it is a long shot.
In his honor, I will share the top nine most controversial, yet popular posts I have written about the Twins newest pitcher, and now former Yankee Phil Hughes.
Honestly, I wish Hughes all the best and hope he blossoms in Minnesota, as I will be watching.
