Hughes will start tomorrow in place of Sabathia


As expected, Phil Hughes will start tomorrow in place of the injured CC Sabathia. It’s unclear if Hughes and David Huff will work in tandem as usual, or if they’ll be split up. I guess it depends on whether or not he’s needed in relief. The Yankees need to come up with a starter for Saturday unless they plan on throwing Hiroki Kuroda on short rest. Brett Marshall and Adam Warren could be options for that game.

    Hughes opposing Price? Let’s call it a toss-up.

      Reverse lock!

    Price will probably shut us down no matter who is starting. I still want them to win but if they’re not going to make the playoffs these games become mostly meaningless. I’m just hoping for a good offseason to help us rebound quickly.
