So Phil Hughes didn't get bombed yesterday, against a team with 9 wins and the 4th lowest run total in the AL, and now suddenly everyone thinks the guy has figured it out. Let's look at some headlines, shall we?
Ken Davidoff says, the "Yankees should keep Hughes in rotation.
John Harper believes that Hughes is turning things around and turning heads with his newly found velocity
. (OMG HE THREW 95 MPH!!! OMG!!!)
Sweeny Murti also thinks Hughes may have started to "figure it out
Seriously guys? Hughes allows 3 runs over 6.2 to a terrible team and now this icon of underachievement has "figured it out"? Give me a break. The knee-jerkery in this town, whether positive or negative, is absolutely insane.
Call me when Hughes has a good month, or how about just two good outings in a row against teams that actually know how to score runs. Then, maybe we can start to get excited about the right-hander. But until that happens, I wouldn't get my hopes up.
