Other than the New York Yankees winning their second series in a row over the weekend vs. the Mariners, once again it seems that pitcher Phil Hughes has managed to keep his spot in the starting rotation.
I will be the first to admit that Hughes pitched better in his last two starts, which were against the Royals and the Mariners.
Just so you know all the facts, here are the stats from Hughes last two starts:
Phil Hughes - 05/04 & 05/12 - stats.
As you can see from the stats, Hughes was not the only Yankee playing well in those two team wins. The bats scored 16-runs in total but to be fair, the Mariners and Royals are not exactly the stiffest of competition. And certainly not, in my opinion, the type of teams I would base any decisions on regarding a player’s or pitcher’s performance against.
No offense but where did I get lost here.
The Yankees are not the only ones who have spoon fed Hughes, as the local media is eating it right up too, as the only reluctant group are the fan...

With one out in the seventh inning Sunday afternoon, many among the Yankee Stadium crowd of 41,631 rose to their feet. On a day Andy Pettitte received a heartfelt ovation for just about everything he did -- warm up, take the field, throw his first pitch -- it was time for one more.
The applause crackled even before manager Joe Girardi reached the mound. By the time Girardi beckoned...

As if there weren’t enough already, the New York Yankees suffered even more injuries during their big, 8-5 win against the Baltimore Orioles last night.
The wounded Bombers are literally dropping like flies, and it is going to make it tough...
Network of Champions has come up with a song parody to cover the topic of Mariano Rivera's recent season-ending injury. Borrowing the melody from Journey's classic hit "Don't Stop Believing", the new lyrics use inspiration from Rivera's promise to return next season. The end result is "Don't Stop Relievin'".

Via The Big LeadThe Mariano Rivera song made it’s debut on YouTube and was a total sensation. They took the tune from “Don’t stop believing” and set it to a Mariano Rivera theme. A New York Yankees fan decided to record and lip-sync this and we thank him for it. It is amazing.
After a year away from the game and a handful of minor league tune-up starts, Andy Pettitte officially returned to the Yankees on Sunday. His pitching line was nothing to write home about — 6.1 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K — and he ultimately took the loss against the light-hitting Mariners. All four runs came on a pair of two-run homers, including a line drive shot by Justin...
Continuing on with the 2012 Card Draft # 1 funded pickups, I snagged yet another 2009 UD A Piece Of History hit of Russel Martin. This is without a doubt my favorite of the bunch, and it's just remarkably sick.Numbered 02/35, this ridiculously awesome patch comes from the "o" on the front of a road Dodgers uniform, if my sleuthing is not incorrect. Part of me is curious...
