Tampa Yanks looking solid

For anyone concerned about Phil Hughes
Thoughts on Phil Hughes

Sorry for the late update. I totally forgot I was taking DotF for the next couple of days while Mike gets to watch the Yanks get their asses beat in Anaheim.

Triple-A Scranton was postponed due to rain. They’re supposed to have a doubleheader today, but it’s raining like a mofo in Jerz. Chad Jennings doesn’t think they’ll get it in, and will be forced to play two extra road games when Scranton heads to Rochester later this month.

Double-A Trenton was suspended by rain. It’s 1-0 Baysox in the third inning. They’ll try to resume it at 6 tonight, but once again, the rain doesn’t look to be letting up (and I’m far closer to Trenton than I am Scranton).

    That was painful for all of us to watch Phil of the Future struggle unfortunately. But he’ll be fine, his 5 walks doesnt tell the story that his command was actually really good. But really, where did people come up with him throwing 92-95? Now that honestly is what you call a New-York hype machine. He throws nowhere NEAR that, and even more absurd is that some blogs even said he could dial it up to 96 a few times a game. Nevertheless, command like that will at least make him a #2 starter, so im not worried about him, just annoyed at the fucking lies that we were told about his fastball.

    I’ve seen reference a couple times to slight mechanical changes before this season that may have robbed him of some of his velocity. I doubt all the minor league scouting reports were wrong.

  • Dude

    where have i read Hughes throws 92-95? let’s see: Pinstripes Plus, Pending Pinstripes, probably BP and a few others. they said he throws 91-96 and sits about 92-94.

  • Mike R.

    I read it on the ESPN gun last night. HE was throwing 93 – 95 comfortably.

  • Chocman51

    Hughes fastball more seems to sit at 91-93, alot of times if you see a fastball rating of the gun from 88-90 its his 2 seamer.

    Baseball America published that Phil Hughes pitches 91-95 and can touch 96. Baseball America would not publish anything that was “organization hype.”
