JUPITER, Fla. -- With one start, Minnesota Twins newcomer Phil Hughes is already making progress more quickly than a year ago.
Hughes allowed one run in 2 2-3 innings Tuesday in his debut for the Twins, who lost to the Miami Marlins 3-1.
Last year Hughes went 4-14 with the New York Yankees after missing all of spring training because of a back injury.
"I hope that's a big...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Mike Pelfrey didn't really know Phil Hughes before they became Twins teammates, even though they pitched in the same city prior to their arrivals one year apart in Minnesota. But Pelfrey does have not-so-fond memories of a time he and the Mets faced Hughes and the Yankees back in 2010.
It was Hughes' first at-bat in his major league career. The last time...
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Only so much can be gleaned from the Minnesota Twins' instrasquad scrimmage Thursday at Hammond Stadium, but it did give new pitcher Phil Hughes the chance to knock off some of the rust.
Hughes pitched two innings against his new teammates, allowing a pair of hits and picking up four strikeouts. His unofficial outing gave Hughes the opportunity to work on...
Phil Hughes kept giving up homers, and he kept hearing about it from the media in New York.

You get used to the flames, the sulfur stench and the lice. It's the reruns of Geraldo that grate on you. Welcome to Yankiverse Hell, the Chad Curtis/Mel Hall wing. Take a pike, folks. We're going to be here for awhile. Like... eternity.One of the few enduring pleasures is knowing that some guys will escape. I'm thinking of Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes. I bear no...
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.

Just like it is good luck when you accidentally slip on a big pile of doggie poop, right?

What about when you are over and over again?
Well, once again, I will state that in this situation I would have happily accepted being wrong about Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes ability.
But enough is enough.
I have been ripped to shreds for my so-called ‘obsession’ with Hughes’...
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.
