Great game for CC.
Actually, we're lucky it was only 4-1.
Being an ex-pitcher, today reaffirmed my disgust for the blind-bats in blue. I really think they blew calls on good pitches by Lester.
But, no excuses.
Amp they all have their own strike zones, it is absolutely inconsistent behind umps. That guy called a lot of low strikes. I could Lester frustrated with pitches he thought he should have had.
I expect some fireworks tonight with Hughes on the mound who gives up the long ball.
Mornin' TWM..i agree about Hughes, would be thrilled to see him pitch a great game, but if not.. i'd rather see him get knocked around from being aggressive than going to a 3-ball count on every other batter...
With the two going tonight who each have a history of inconsistency I would not wage a bet on this one.
I'm guessing a high scoring battle of the pens unless one of the two gets into a good rhythm.
I just see the Sox hitters who have seen Hughes many times waiting on his fastball even if he looks good early on.
Even when Hughes is on the 2nd to 3rd time through the order is when you usually see the moon shots.
Unless he turns it around I don't see him here next season, whether the Yankees move him this season is the question. He would do much better in a large stadium being the fly ball pitcher that he has evolved into.
Nova and Nuno in the rotation at AAA to be stretched out for possible injuries they say but I think otherwise.
Hughes is on the bubble.
