• Phil Hughes Over Dustin Moseley

    Posted by on September 26th, 2010 · Comments (12)

    The Yankees announced that Phil Hughes was starting this evening’s game, over Dustin Moseley, the scheduled starter, at 3:30 pm ET today. Now, reportedly, the Yankees made this call last night, and, during yesterday’s late afternoon game, they had Dustin Moseley out in the bullpen in case he was needed in that role during the game.

    So, really, the Yankees were thinking about this move at least 24 hours before it was announced. Interesting…in so many levels.

      Looks like it was the right call ;)

      Oh! And I almost forgot. The Yankees, Rays, Twins, and Rangers are all 5-5 over their last 10 games. That’s .500 ball, isn’t it?

      Worked out just fine, I guess.

      Guess which starting pitcher has started the last two Yankees wins.

      And pitched two good games.

      I wonder if we’ll see another one of those very fair “Phil Hughes
      W-L Record and ERA in his last umpteen starts” threads tomorrow.

      He didn’t get the win, but he came up big, didn’t he?

      Sox also 5-5 in their last 10, after tonight.

      Maybe everybody sucks.

      Except the Phillies. Wait, they’ve lost two straight now. To the Mets.

      Still cranky after the big win?

      Man…

      5 walks in 6 innings is good?

      All due respect Steve but you open yourself up to these kinds of comments when you slice and dice numbers to suit your own arguments too…like with Curtis Granderson.

      I certainly am. Another blown save by Rivera, another night of no offense.

      The Yanks are unwatchable right now.

      Hughes pitched well.

      The Yanks rallied from behind twice in the last three innings, including once after the Great Rivera blew a save in a crucial spot.

      The win wrapped up the playoffs for good and all.

      I know that one win doesn’t “solve all ills”, but if you can’t get some pleasure from that…I don’t know what to say.

      @ Evan3457:
      You didn’t ask me if I got any pleasure from the win, you asked me if I was cranky. I can’t be happy the team won and agree with all the good things you pointed out without also being cranky that the team still looks terrible in several critical ways?

      Well, OK, yeah.

      I thought they played OK last night. I mean, Mo ignored the runners, and Posada couldn’t throw the ball in the rain.

      I had to listen on radio through most of it, but Sterling seemed to be saying that Matsuzaka had excellent command; that he was throwing strikes when he had to. Of course, it’s Sterling, so you have no idea if it’s accurate or not.
