Opening Day

30 03 2008

Really pumped about tomorrow. It is definitely a different feeling being on the team for the start of the season. Sorry for the lack of updates lately. Trying to get settled into NY.

Phil, I wish you and your fellow yankees the best of luck in 2008. May you keep your ball low in the zone and you will achieve victory

Hey Phil. I wish you the best of luck this season. I’m really looking forward to watching you guys this year. I’m born and raised in the Bronx…so this is a really special season for me being the last year of the stadium…hoping you can bring home the 27th world championship for us!

Thanks for your posts, you’re definitely a cool dude.

Good luck this season Phil!

mm7ny was kind enough to give tickets out to Thursdays game in your previous post so I’ll be going and I can’t wait to see you pitch and cheer you on! (hope you’re still scheduled to pitch Thursday)

Phil-
Make sure you soak it all up and have a blast.

Just remember that as magical as the feeling will be tommrow, it won’t compare to taking the mound in New York City for the last World Series in Yankee Stadium.

Let’s get it done in 2008.

GO YANKEES!!!

It’s like Christmas Eve!! Opening Day baby. Gotta love it.
Gotta also love the fact that Girardi is going with Cano in the 6 hole. Would love to see Robbie put up a .315 average, 20-25 home run, 40-45 doubles, 100 runs, 100 RBI, 200 hits and stellar defense type season.
Phil, I haven’t seen you pitch ALL spring on YES which really sucked. Can’t wait for your 1st start. 15 Wins in 08 baby. Bring it Franchise.

Yankees Baby.

I am freakin psyched for this season…
By the way… that YES interview with Ian and Joba where they said you went from ‘Hughes’ to ‘dork/nerd’ (something like that) was one of the greatest/funniest things I’ve seen in my life…
Phil – would you consider yourself a “nerd” , especially among the baseball guys? It’s not like you went to college like they did…

30 03 2008

Do you live in the city, or do you do the suburbs, and drive to the stadium thing?

Sweet, just bought some tickets for your start for Thursday’s game…any insider info on where you’ll be signing autographs? =)

Good luck this year Phil. . . I cannot imagine how excited you and the rest of the team must be . . .try and get some rest as its a long season! Did you catch Ryan Zimmerman’s walk-off HR just now! How cool for him.

I have a feeling that you, IPK and Joba are going to be better than anyone ever imagined – no pressure!

see you in Chicago!

I’m taking the afternoon of tomorrow to watch Opening Day. It’s a yearly tradition with my buddy and I. A day of beer, steak, and baseball. Might even mix in a celebritory cigar.
Here’s to the Yankees closing the Stadium in style!

I am so ready for tomorrow, too bad I will miss half of the game b/c of class. Hope you are getting used to the chilly weather up there. Thanks for the update, and good luck this week- we’re rooting for you :)

Tomorrow is a special day at the Stadium. Enjoy it and lets get ready to bring a championship back where it belongs. Have a great start this week.

Do you have your own place or do you share with Ian or someone.

Grats on the latest start, If you can do that on a consistent basis things will be fine.

My parents are letting me skip school so I get to watch the game.=]

Where are the contests? You showed us all these prizes but no contests.

Opening day should be amazing, Phil. I can only imagine how awesome the pre-game intros must be for the players (especially the young guys).

I’m really upset I’m gonna miss it. :-(

Best of luck this year! Of course, we’ll be behind you all the way. :-)

Good luck this year, cant wait to see you pitch. its been a LONG time since ive been excited to watch a pitcher pitch for the yankees.

Hey Phil

Please don’t apologize – it’s definitely not necessary. You kind of have important things going on in your life – any time you spend here is a bonus!

Good Luck – this is just the first of many successful seasons you will have in pinstripes!

Definitely skipping school tomorrow and watching Wang out duel the doc on Sportsnet.
I can’t wait to get this season going and bring 27 to New York.

31 03 2008
yankeexx

I’m so excited..for me here in Hawaii the game starts at 7am. Hope Wang can get the jitters out of the way and pitch like the ace he is.
Hope Halladay bombs since the Jays tried to keep him away from the Yanks during Spring Training as if it was a covert operation..oh well we’re hours away from opening day.

Enjoy Opening Day Phil.

In my opinion you should never have to apologize if a few days go by without a new post. Most of us understand the busy life you lead as a Yankee’s starter and appreciate any time that you can share with us more than you know!!! You read it all the time but thanks for starting this blog and for letting all of us into a little part of the life of Phil Hughes.

Let’s go Yankees!!

31 03 2008
ssclemsonyankees3387

YES…FINALLY!!! I’m so excited. Words of advice Phil…

1. Go out in your first start, and pitch a complete game shutout.
2. When you face the Red Sox for the first time, drill Manny in the head, give him a dirty look, and then strike out 10 Red Sox to show them you mean business.

And Finally…

3. Realize that I’m joking, and you really shouldn’t do suggestion #2…not the first part anyway. If you manage to get #1 done, you’ll make 56,000 friends immediately.

Good luck Phil!

Good luck Phil!

mrsvickid, I still have the 2 tix to the April 6 game (Phil’s start) availalable for you. If you want them go look in the last thread for info on how to claim then. If I don’t hear from you by midnight EST tonight (Monday) I’m going to offer them to the next person in line so that the tickets don’t go to waste.

Good luck this season Phil! I leave for the stadium in a minute and am looking forward to it!!! Go Yanks!

31 03 2008

Great post SSCLEMSONYANKEES!!!!!!!!!!! Phil,after you drill Manny,drill Ortiz next so there is no question it was on purpose. And forget about 56,000 friends,it will be in the millions.

Hey Phil, Good luck this afternoon. I’m watching right now but it’s in a delay so that must be boring. What types of things do you guys do to pass the time when you’re in a delay or especially on days that your not pitching?

31 03 2008

Phil,

Good luck on Thursday.

Last year at the Stadium.

New Manager best three young pitchers in the game.

New era at the Yankees.

Best fan base !!!

Perfect for a World Series Ring this year.

Bummer about the rain today. Though I’m a little glad, because I have tomorrow off and can actually watch the entire game.

At least it was rain though, could have been worse; snow, freezing rain, hail. Stuff that would be a bit harder to get rid of before the game tomorrow. It’s supposed to be warmer tomorrow… but still rain in the forecast. :/

31 03 2008
foothillhigh

Yo Phil- Please allow me to introduce myself… I’m a 26 year old finance professional from Murray Hill, Manhattan (grew up in NY) and a life-long Yankee fan. I saw the Kim Jones interview during the rain delay (took the day off to watch the opener) and decided to check out the blog- pretty cool idea. My buddy, (name included in my email to you), is the director of fan services, so I see some of the team here and there.

Please do not hesitate to let me know there are any questions that you may have about NY (dealing with NY fans & media, things to do, nightlife, restaurants, stores, neighborhoods, etc…). I figure the vets are getting up there in age and probably are not out and about in the city so much anymore!

A quick piece of advice (from the perspective of a knowledgeable NY fan) is to stay focused on the field, play to the situation, and not to worry about what anyone but the Yankees staff thinks. The fans will judge you based on one thing- your performance/production relative to what they believe your potential is. Making the best out of what you have is big- that’s why Jeter is a baseball god, and deservedly so.

I’m definitely happy about the leadership right now with Joe G., Jete, George, Andy, Mo, and Moose. I attend about 20-25 games a year so I’m actually a bit upset about the new stadium being built- it would be cool if that issue was mentioned more in the media.

Take care and good luck on this season… in all seriousness, its time we get #27!

Best,
Greg

31 03 2008
bosoxwschamps

To Ben Hamblen and all Yankee fans – It has come to my attention that you, Ben Hamblen do not like it when I correct a young man’s grammar and then proceed to poke fun at New York’s schooling system, and for that, I apologize. Truthfully, I do not even know how New York schooling ranks among the other 49 states. It is also extremely unfair to base an entire state’s schooling on one poorly spelled word (albeit the attempted word was not even close to the correct spelling). So once again, I am truly sorry. Go Sox.

31 03 2008
brianna24

Bosoxwschamps: I’m not one to be confrontational, but what are you doing on here, if not to discuss baseball? You seem intelligent enough to answer that question.

31 03 2008
baseballmanxc

He apologized, its over. Just keep in mind though, not all Yankee fans are stupid, just like I wonder if there are any smart Red Sox fans. Consider Yankees Empire isn’t just in NY as ‘Red Sox Nation’ isn’t just people in Massachusetts either.

On the bright side of the game being cancelled, at least we should be one of the few games on.

31 03 2008

Thanks baseballmanxc, for having my back. And to answer brianna24′s question, its because I have a passion for baseball, and I realize that even though Phil is a Yankee, that is no reason to hate a player. I respect Phil and what he does and I love to hear what professional ball players have to say, before it gets convoluted by the media. Cheers!

31 03 2008
thadom75

hey phil, i know the rainout doesnt affect you much, as you will still pitch on thursday. but anyways, how difficult is it to be in Chein Ming Wang’s position today. Especially for him coming off a tumultuous post and off season im sure he was fired up to put that behind him and pitch this season. Is it tough to gear up to pitch two consecutive days like that?

yanksgal07

Bummer….the game was rained out but I’ll be there tomorrow night (thankfully I don’t have to tell my boss I need another day off). In truth…as much as I wanted them to play I would have hated to see anyone get hurt on the first day of the season. Also if the game started both Wang and Halladay would have lost a start if the game wasn’t official. I was at the Stadium 9:30 am and it felt so great to be back at my home away from home. The new stadium is truly amazing now that it is finally forming and looks so weird just across the street from THE Yankee Stadium…two stadiums side by side. There is PLENTY of All Star and Stadium commemorative items in all the stores.

Anyway …we just have to wait till tomorrow night to see our Yanks get that first win out of the way… :)

Phil …as far as the blog goes…first and foremost just go out and do your best to help us to Championship 27. If you have some spare time you know we always love to read anything you have to write and as always thank you for even thinking of your fans in this great way.

Go Wang …GOOOOOOOOOO Yankees 2008 !!!!!

Super bummed about the rain-out…but now I have 2 televised games in a row to look forward to before I’m relegated to watching the Pirates play (man does it stink being in the middle of PA)! I did actually like seeing Detroit lose to KC, so it wasn’t an entirely wasted day. Good luck on Thursday!

I was at the stadium..awful weather conditions. I will be there again tonight! One thing: I do think it’s awful that a fan has to pay for parking, pay for the food, the souvenirs and have the game be washed out. I know it’s all part of the business….but maybe the Yankees should let u know earlier. I think they want you to go there and empty out your wallet knowing full well that the game was going to be rained out.

dayankeeswin57

I agree with the “F The Sox” comment, or maybe he would feel better if we spelled it out? Sorry that we Yankee Fans dont spell so well, he have been busy winning championships for the past 90 years, as opposed to the last 3 or 4.

I think its fitting that Yankee Stadium has its OWN opening day, instead of sharing with the other teams!

LETS GO YANKEES!!!!!

The road to 27 begins tonight!

Best of luck Phil!

PICK A SONG FOR JOBA WHEN HE ENTERS A BALL GAME (i.e. Enter Sandman for Mariano)??? Can we start a new thread for that??

Thanks Phil. Best of luck in your first start!!

Good luck man!!! sorry about the rain out, but I hope you guys are ready to bring it because you know we, the fans, will this year!

Tell A-Rod we don’t care what Jose says and we just want him to be the guy he was last year!

i’m a yankees fan through and through and thus, i do not like the redsox.. however, this blog really isn’t the place for “f the sox” comments – we’re classier than that, aren’t we?
phil started an awesome thing here – let’s not turn it into a forum for mudslinging… there are TONS of forums/groups on myspace for that, LOL…

even though I’ve been born and raised a diehard Orioles fan here in Baltimore and I’ve always been taught to hate the Yanks, I still enjoy watching talented players play a game I love….you’ve got amazing stuff dude so just keep working as hard as you did to get there and we’ll be mentioning you as a perennial Cy young candidate and all-star before you know it….I do a few experts level fantasy leagues with writers from the area and roto vets from all over the place and I’ve been telling everyone after my drafts the last month that I could easily see you making a Cy Young run THIS year….best of luck- I look forward to bringing my son to a few games this year to see you battle my O’s here in Camden Yards….take care

Just finished watching your season debut. Awesome job tonight phil. Great command of your fb. Excellent location, hitting spots with movement. Your curve was even better. But everything came off that good fastball. Can’t wait to watch you in person. I missed every start of yours last year, this year will be different.
