Draftkings – Don’t Make A Hughes Mistake

Don’t you hate it when you are right?  Phil Hughes on the Scranton Yankees (Photo credit: Wikipedia) What about when you are over and over again?

Is Phil Hughes working on the big contract next year with the Dodgers?

If so, more power to him.Listen: I have no problem with Yankees having big contract years, and then sticking it to the team, considering the organizational policy of refusing to negotiate in the middle of a pact.  The Yankees can't have it both ways.
