I was talking to a friend of mine who lives in the NY area, according to him rumor has it the Yankees are talking about bringing Phil Hughes up to pitch as soon as Friday.

Not sure if it's true, but I can see them doing it with the state their pitching is in.

3 starts: 3.94 ERA, 16 IP, 11 Hits, 7 Runs, 4 BB, 17 K

*edit* those are Hughes stats incase you are asking about Bailey.

Doubt it would have much. WK doesn't seem like someone who would be swayed like something like that.

He's starting on Thursday:

While Hughes is more major-league ready than Bailey, I still think it's too early for him. On the other hand, I honestly don't know what choice they have at this point.

Being from NY I can listen to some of the talk on the Yes Network, and Vatican hit the nail on the head. They would love to have Hughes get more innings in AAA but with the majority of the pitching staff (bullpen included) in shambles they need arms to throw innings.

Seriously, trade Milton to the Yanks for one of those T-Shirts they sell outside that says:

"Hey Boston, there was no curse. You just sucked for 86 years!"
