…and coming in third.
An interesting comment on Phil Hughes…via Jon Heyman -
Asked how Phil Hughes did this spring, one Yankees person said, “Not bad for the guy who came in third” in the competition for the No. 5 starter. Some Yankees people believe Alfredo Aceves and Sergio Mitre actually outpitched both Hughes and Joba Chamberlain. But Hughes was the correct choice for the rotation. Long-term, he’ll be the best of the group. Joba will be the set-man, although the Yankees aren’t admitting that yet.
Outpitched by Sergio Mitre? Now, is that an oxymoron or what?
