• Giambino To Dr. Phil: Where Were You Last Year?

    Via Michael Geffner -

    The Yankees had their first live batting practice today.

    All the young pitchers were, predictably, impressive, especially phenom-in-waiting Philip Hughes. You heard the Yankee batters drop names like Clemens and Schilling after they faced the kid.

    “His fastball jumps right out of his hand,” Jason Giambi said, “and his curveball was filthy. We could’ve really used him last year.”

    Hey, is Jason putting Hughes in the same class as Pavano with that last statement?

      Given what we’ve seen from Pavano, I’d hope not.

      I was joking.

      The only time I want to see Hughes’ & Pavano’s names in the same sentence is:
      “Because Phil Hughes has been such a success for the Yankees in 2007, they traded Carl Pavano to the Tigers for Joel Zumaya, who will set up for Mariano Rivera.”

      (or substitute decent BUC, or catching prospect)
