Sometimes, it’s just not fair


I present to you the probable pitching matchups for Double-A Trenton’s 4-game set with Double-A New Hampshire this weekend:

Thursday: Ian Patrick Kennedy vs Ricky Romero (1.72 WHIP, 4.11 ERA)

Friday: Phil Hughes vs Ismael Ramirez (1.80 WHIP, 5.54 ERA)

Saturday: Joba Chamberlain vs Eric Fowler (1.63 WHIP, 6.00 ERA)

Sunday: Alan Horne vs Kyle Yates (1.53 WHIP, 5.04 ERA)

So um . . . yeah . . . should be an interesting series . . .

    OK, so AAA didn’t turn out the way everyone planned. But that has to be the best 4some to ever occupy a AA roster.

  2. Greg G. says:

    Mike — do you know who’s going to follow Hughes on his rehab start? One of the starters?

  3. Mike A. says:

    That’s a good question Greg, it’ll probably be either Jason Jones or Brett Smith. I’m guessing Smith because he’s actually a part of the 5-man rotation and that would be his day to start. I could be wrong though…

    this is just funny

  5. ShawnT says:

    That Rotation would be unfair against the Devil Rays. Whats Hughes Pitch Count for friday?

  6. Joseph P. says:

    45-50 is the pitch count I heard. Boo-urns.

  7. Chris says:

    Saturday’s game will be televised on CN8.


  8. Greg G. says:

    Thanks, Mike. I was just getting a little greedy: I’m going to the game and was pulling for a Hughes/IPK or Hughes/Joba daily double.


    Hey, I also just noticed that Brett Gardner is up to AAA, and Sardinha was sent down.

  9. Brian says:

    Heading to Trenton tomorrow to see Hughes, can’t wait. Hopefully he’ll stretch those 45-50 into 6 innings.
