He pitched well this game for 3 innings. Nothing else is germane.

That basically translates into whenever the Yankees coaching staff saw the bats about to rake against Hughes.

Remember Peter, Hughes should not be in the bullpen in the first place. And he stunk in his first relief outing anyway. If he could be even a decent fifth starter….the Yankees bullpen would be in better shape.

The Yankees would not have been in that situation in Baltimore if Hughes did his job. He would never have gone to the bullpen in the first place but the Yankees continued to start him regardless that he has won 4 games, lazy one in July. Girardi would not have pulled Hughes if he was pitching so well…he was about to get lit up that is why he was pulled.

I would put my mom on the bump over Joba so that is not a a very comforting comparison.

Try to focus on the now. Both were on pitch counts because yes the bullpen is overworked/injuries. They both performed well. Hughes struggles this year are pretty apparent. However, for this GAME he pitched well and Run Support had nothing to do with it. If you want us to take you serious, focus on what we comment on vs going off on some tangent.

He's in the bullpen now (because he sucked) but with our depleted bullpen he was on a pitch count announced during the game. He pitched to a 3.00ERA this game, so he pitched well regardless of how many runs we scored later on in the game. I'll take Hughes over Joba!!!!!!!!

His total inefficiency all season is the reason the Yankees have him pitching just 3 innings, and they head to Boston with a depleted bullpen. Girardi pulled him out of the game because if you look at his game log stats from this season 3-innings is about all Hughes is good for…just cause the bats showed up last night doesn't change what is already a fact.
