• Hughes To D.L. With ‘Strained Oblique’

      Rich–If you think this “strained oblique” is real, I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.

      Is Phil Hughes only Phil of the Future?…

      Shockingly, there has been a bit of skepticism over the Yanks placing Phil Hughes on the DL the day after he spit the bit against Detroit and got booed. Here are some of the comments around the blogosphere: Steve Lombardi……
