Twins' Hughes outdueled in loss to Tampa Bay

MINNEAPOLIS -- With two swings of his bat, Sean Rodriguez quashed the seemingly impending pitchers' duel set to take place at Target Field on Saturday night. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire and anyone else who took a look at the matchup before settling into their seats or couches at home could've anticipated as much. "The names are there," he said before his team&...

Hughes sharp as Twins shut out Seattle

Phil Hughes’ next outing is scheduled for Sunday in Colorado. So even if he made the AL All-Star team he would have been unable to pitch in the Midsummer Classic because of a league rule prohibiting pitchers who start so close to the game from appearing. But Hughes had sealed his own fate, anyway, with his previous three starts. He gave up five, five and seven runs in those outings...

Twins' Hughes gives up season-high seven runs in loss to Yankees

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins offense was responsible for Yankees rookie Masahiro Tanaka having the worst start of his brief career. Unfortunately for the Twins, right-hander Phil Hughes also had his ugliest outing of the season. In the end, Tanaka's off-night was better than Hughes', allowing New York to win the first game of the four-game series by a 7-4 final at Target...

Minnesota Twins: Why Phil Hughes has been the biggest surprise

Phil Hughes As the Minnesota Twins continue to struggle defensively on the mound, and very recently in the field, there’s not much to look for through the grapevine. The pitching staff is 32-35. Only six of the overall 16-man roster has winning records, and three have ERA’s lower than .300 (Matt Guerrier at 2.81, Glen Perkins at 2.76 and Casey Fien at 2.17). However, there have...

Pay Attention to Phil Hughes

Phil Hughes debuted for the New York Yankees in 2007, as a 21 year old, making 13 starts that season.  He even had a no-hitter heading into the 7th inning of a game against the Texas Rangers, but had to leave due to a hamstring injury.  His first full season as a starter wouldn't come until 2010, and it looked as if Hughes was going to be a big part of the next gen in...

Phil Hughes, improvement or a savvy signing?

Twins this season. Phil Hughes has been a revelation for the Twins. There was some suggestion that Hughes would be better in Minnesota than he would be in New York, in a park that is better suited to his abilities. Despite this, I don’t think anyone expected Hughes to be THIS good in his time with the Twins. He’s 7-2 with a 3.17 ERA to this point in the season, which puts him...

Twins' Hughes bested by last-place Astros

MINNEAPOLIS -- It turns out the only team that can slow down Phil Hughes is . . . the last-place Houston Astros. One start after facing his old team, the Yankees, Hughes turned in his worst start in a Twins uniform. He allowed a season-high five runs -- including three homers, also the most he's given up this year -- as Minnesota lost 5-4 to the visiting Astros in Friday'...

Yankees: Finally Girardi knows Hughes stinks

Everybody says that if bird (pigeon if you live in NYC) feces land on your head, or if it rains on your wedding that something good is going to happen. Photograph of Phil Hughes taken on April 29, 2008 at Yankee Stadium..May 1, 2008. Just like it is good luck when you accidentally slip on a big pile of doggie poop, right? Well, earlier today as I innocently was walking down Lexington...
