Got to give credit where it is due

I had made fun of Phil Hughes and Mark Melancon in my previous post... but I have to tip my cap to them.

They combined for 7 innings of shutout 2 hit ball and the Yankees cruised.

Hughes has infinitely more wins in 2009 than he did in 2008.

And thus far has one other distinction:

He's the last Yankees pitcher to win a post season game (Game 3 of the 2007 Division Series.)

So this passionate Red Sox fan will ease on the throttle for Hughes and Melancon. It will be interesting to see how the New York press anoints Hughes as the next ace, won't it?

  1. Well there was high hopes for Hughes before, He just may be the real deal, Saying that, Even if Sabathia, Burnett and Pettite live up to what is expected, The Yankees still lack Middle Relief and depth in the lineup.
