Philthy Phil


Remember when everyone would complain that the Yankees need that dominant setup or bridge for Mariano Rivera in the Bullpen.I was one of those people who said that Joba Chamberlain was the “Chosen One” for that spot but I have changed my mind on that statement for 2 reasons. One is that Joba has been pitching great as a starter and two ” Philthy Phil Hughes!! ” I mean he has been lights out literally. Here’s a stat for all you guys still on the Joba Train. Hughes averaged 91 mph on his Fastball as a starter but now hes averaging 96mph in the Pen.  Also I am a little to young to of witnessed the Yankees winning in the 70’s but remember the hard throwing right hander that came outta the pen in those winning years. That’s right folks I’m talking about Rich “Goose” Gossage. And if you watch the Yankees broadcast on YES you can clearly here the Yankee faithful hollering “HUUGHES!!!!! I mean its just great. The one thing that I really don’t agree with Joe Girardi on Hughes is  that they still have him as a starter and not as a permanent reliever. I mean this is gonna turn into another Joba debate.
