Anthony Rieber of Newsday takes a look at player websites and blogs. Here’s what he had to say about Phil Hughes’ blog:
Phil Hughes has received some attention for his site, www.philhughes.wordpress.com. It’s pretty much just Hughes posting, but the posts have gotten less frequent and much shorter lately. Maybe being 0-3 with an 8.82 ERA, he just doesn’t have much to say.
Know what? That’s not a bad thing. At this point of his career, the way his season is going, Hughes should be more worried about his pitching and less worried about posting to his blog.
Personally, I would be a tad turned off if Hughes was blogging away, like mad, while his pitching is so poor. So, I don’t see the need to get on him, now, about “less frequent and much shorter” blog entries.
