    Phil Hughes

    How about Hughes as an under the radar bullpen addition? Wasn't he pretty solid when the Yanks used him a set up man? I wonder if he could be had on a reasonable contract. Buy low?

    Re: Phil Hughes


    Such a move would require a manipulation of the 40 man roster which I doubt that the Sox will do until at least after the Rule 5 draft on December 5th as they will not want to expose one of the guys they just added.

    If they could get Hughes cheaply enough and thought that he would have been better than Badenhop they probably already would have him under contract.

    Hughes may end up signing a minor league contract, and it that happens the Sox could become more interested.

    Not a good fit for Fenway, with all the homeruns he gives up. He's better suited for a pitchers park.

    He likely wouldn't take a BP job.  And he will get paid real money by someone.  Bad 2013, but a #3 type in 2012.

    Re: Phil Hughes

    hes a flyball pitcher that does not do well in fenway and some of the smaller ALE parks. Better suited for Citi Field, Petco, etc...

    He is not looking for bullpen work or bullpen money, and will not have to settle for it...

    On the other hand, Hughes remains a great fit for the Yankees.....from  a Red Sox perspective. I hope he and Slappy stay there for ever and ever and ever......

    Ha true. As a Sox fan I love seeing Hughes on the mound - for the other team.

    Hughes is a good pitcher ... if they bring back Forbes Field, the Astrodome, the old Boston Braves park (South End Grounds) , the old RS park (Huntington Grounds) or the OLD YS, less the short porch, for him to pitch in.

    Re: Phil Hughes

    If the Sox are planning on adding anymore pitching the guyi would concentrate on is Tanaka. The rest are just pieces, he's a division changer. Think of the Felix and you have the comparison. Also by winning the bidding when it finally takes place also keeps the billionaires club from getting better! Right now the odds on favorites to win the bidding war, the Yankees and the Los Angeles Red Sox, If he has to land somewheres other than Boston I'm rooting for our West coast affiliate!

    Hughes RH flyball pitcher in Yankee band box was not a good fit. Some team looking for a possible cheap 3-4 guy in a pitchers park might get a good find. Media was brutal on him in NY a change of scenery might just be the right thing for him. Are the Padres listening?

    Hughes will likely sign a deal with a team tThat will give him a shot to be part of the rotation coming out of camp...of which there are at least a dozen teams in need of a quality back of the rotation starter...

    agreed

     

     

    Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Marlins are showing interest in Phil Hughes.

    Hughes is coming off a disappointing 2013 season, having put up a 5.19 ERA over 145 2/3 innings for the Yankees. The potential is there, though, and he would be a nice rebound candidate in the National League and in a pitcher's park. The Mets, Royals and Twins are also known to have inquired on the right-hander. Source: Miami Herald Nov 24 - 9:40 AM

    I too think a change of scenery could help the kid overcome some of his issues. End of the day commanding his fastball has been his biggest hurdle...
