    Yankees call up Phil Hughes

    Per CBS Sportsline:

    The New York Yankees said Monday they plan on having top pitching prospect Phil Hughes make his major league debut Thursday against Toronto. Yankees manager Joe Torre didn't rule out that the 20-year-old right-hander, taken in the first round of the 2004 amateur draft, might make more than one start. "If we're comfortable and we sense he's comfortable, we'll see what we do," Torre said before the Yankees played Tampa Bay. Hughes is 2-1 with a 3.94 ERA in three starts this season at Triple-A Scranton, and he pitched six shutout innings last Wednesday at Syracuse, allowing two hits, striking out 10 and walking none.
    Can Bailey be far behind?

    The Yankees are seriously hurting for SPs, so they can't afford to wait.

    ...or Kyle Lohse... has his value ever been higher?

    If you don't have starting pitching, everyone sits around waiting for the game to begin.

    It will be interesting to watch. I am a big Hughes fan. I have talked with him a few times and he is a super nice, down to earth guy. I will root for him to pitch very well. No way the Yankees wanted to do this with him yet, but they are at a point where they don't have much of a choice. Best of luck to him.

    Mind if I ask how you got to speak with him?

    Can Bailey hit left handed pitching?

    He collects baseball cards and so do I. We had a friend in common through another message board.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I'll bet a dollar that it will









    . . . until Lohse's next start.

    But seriously, though--I started a thread about how I think Lohse is going to have a career year, and if there's ever a time for Harang to have a down year, this could be it.

    no it won't. but between caling up a 20 yo, and Igawa's struggles, it might just be what the doctor order to get of that contract a year early.
