• What do you do with a problem like Phil?

    Phil Hughes is not a starting pitcher. He just isn’t, not right now. He doesn’t have a single quality secondary pitch in his arsenal right now, nor does he have the sort of fastball command you need to turn a lineup over consistently without breaking balls or off speed pitches to keep hitters off balance. That was on full display last night, when the Rangers’ lineup was all over him the second time they saw him. Hughes faced six batters twice, and the only one who made an out was Elvis Andrus, who tapped a curveball that should have been in the dirt to Alex Rodriguez to bring home a run. The other five batters accounted for two doubles, a single, and two hit batters before Joe Girardi decided he’d seen enough of Hughes for one day.

    Agreed. Outfield is done. I think Cashman even said it. You can forget Upton.

    That's a s... load of money for a guy without much of a track record and overwhelming numbers. I wouldn't be pissed if they passed on him, granted they

    Wanting to dump salary and needing to dump salary are two completely different situations. IMO the comparisons to the Arod trade are invalid because Texas
