OK, let's go to the videotape - last night, top of the first: The lead-off batter flies to left. No problemo. Next guy, Dustin Ackley walks on seven pitches. Ouch. Next guy singles to center on a 2-2 count, but Brett Gardner's throw beats Ackley running to third - he's out, except the ball glances off his hip and bounces away. If that throw arrives, two outs, one on.Next, Kendry Morales hits a fading liner to left. It's catchable, but Granderson slips out of his stance. The ball bounces in front of him. If not for the glitch, Seattle goes out: no runs, one hit, one left. Well, no point agonizing over what if's. Last night's reality tape shows Phil Hughes disintegrating into another trash heap of uncertainties - short and long term - and it's a bad sitcom we've watched now for four years, and it's grown more stale than the closing season of The Office. Still, I respectfully submit that over the last two weeks, the Yankees have not only been scrappy...

  • It was Hughes, he looks good one game and then looks like he's throwing batting practice a game later. He drives me crazy with his inconsistency. He needs to go back to the bullpen as a long reliever once Pineda is ready to go.
