Hello again….

12 04 2008

       Sorry for the lack of posting lately. The travel along with being in hotels makes it tough. I haven’t had a chance to watch the new episode of The Office yet which I’m bummed about. The internet connection hasn’t been solid enough for me to watch it on nbc.com. I’ll figure something out though. I’ll try to get a contest up sometime soon. Maybe when we get to Tampa. Hope everyone is doing well.

The Office was definitely worth the wait. It was as uncomfortable and hilarious as ever. You’re going to love the episode and there were lots of laugh out loud moments. Enjoy it and good luck tomorrow!

Good Luck against the blosox tomorrow Phil.
Like everyone else has already said, The Office episode was awesome this past week. Do you normally watch scrubs right after it? Because that was a good one also.

One last question lol, what have the other guys said about the “suspected jinx” shirt in the new stadium?

Look forward to seeing you pitch against Boston tomorrow… The new office episode was alright. I’m sure there will be better though.

Hey Phil.

We totally understand that it’s hard to post on the road. It’s always great to hear from you whenever you get a chance.

Good luck tomorrow night! Go get ‘em :twisted:

Gotta be surreal pitching to Boston for the first time. I’m sure you’ll do fine.

You should look into tethering a 3G phone with your laptop. It can pretty much guarantee you a fast connection in any major market.

You should totally be sleeping and not up posting blogs on the internetz. Don’t you have something important to do tomorrow night? I forget what…. It’ll come to me…

Oh, and I know how you feel about the Office. I’m still waiting for House to come back on.

Alright, take care. I’d wish you luck, but you don’t need it :-)

I kind of figured that you were too busy with all of the traveling to post. Don’t worry, I think we all understand.

Just out of curiosity, are you sleeping okay in the hotels? Most people I know, myself included, generally don’t sleep well, and we need you all rested up for your starts.

And speaking of sleep, I think that’s what I’m going to do… I’m tired after screaming through the last 3 innings of the 11 inning game my school played.

12 04 2008

all is well phil, the office was amazing, no big shock, but try to watch it asap before someone spoils something.

anyway, goodluck tomorrow, kick the red sox ass!

No need to apologize. I’m sure the travel etc has been very difficult this yearly season. Good thing though you guys will get it out of the way early and have more games at home later in the season.

Good luck tomorrow night.

Thought about going to the game tomorrow night to see you pitch but its probably not gonna happen. I went to the first game of the series where Wang decided to be awesome. It was still fun though. Good luck tomorrow and remember, you will always be a Boston fan deep down.

That’s ok, Phil. Just take your frustration at missing The Office out on the Red Sox! How is it for you to be wearing the pinstripes and facing the Red Sox at Fenway being that you have rooted for them most of your life? Like I said, I won’t hold it against you because we all make mistakes. ; ) Just pitch how you know how to pitch and you will be fine. Go Yanks! And luckily on to some warm weather tomorrow.

Now go out there and kick some Red Sock ass, killer.

Still proud to call myself a supporter of Phil Hughes :)

gcohen9782

Phil,

You seem very bat shy, I think you’ve been spending to much time with Mike Mussina. Avoid him like the plague.

Oh, and the ump was squeezing you in the first, you can’t nibble when the ump won’t give you the corners.

No he won’t nyyankeefan185,

You can’t expect a 21 year old kid to make or break the Yankees season. If the bullpen does it’s job and Wang, Pettitte and Moose do their jobs, this team should be fine, regardless of what Kennedy and Hughes do.

13 04 2008

nicejob34

Glad to hear you’re a fan of The Office.

Perhaps you can get a tour of Dunder Mifflin when they send you back to Scranton.

I can’t remember seeing a guy more overmatched.

What is it now??? Something like 94 baserunners in 11 innings pitched???

You are putting the Yankees behind the 8-ball, and you are DESTROYING the bullpen in the process.

Tell Michael, Dwight, Jim and Pam I said, Hi!

13 04 2008
gcohen9782

I’m an idiot because I don’t think we have to rely on a 21 year old to make or break our season? OK.

And I know those three are this team’s future, where did I say anything different.

And how am I being a hater?

13 04 2008
johnnymoinidaho

Phil, even though I am a life long Red Sox fan, you are one of my favorite young players.

Tough game tonight. I’m sure the temps and adjusting to a new catcher had something to do with it.

That curve was looking awesome though. It ate Pedroia up.

Anyways, hope to see you over on the beckett boards again.

Better Luck on your next start,

89mphfastball

HEY PHIL, I THOUGHT YOU WERE A POWER PITCHER? THAT 89MPH HEAT ISN’T GOING TO CUT IT IN THE BIGS. YOU LOOKED LIKE A SCARED LITTLE GIRL OUT ON THE MOUND TONIGHT. 7 RUNS IN 2 INNINGS? DISGUSTING. 3 INNINGS AGAINST THE ROYALS? A JOKE.

I HOPE THEY HAVE AN INTERNET CONNECTION FOR YOU AT SCRANTON, SO YOU CAN UPDATE YOUR LITTLE BLOG.

PHIL “89MPH” HUGHES…LOL!!!!!!

THE YANKEES PASSED UP ON JOHAN SANTANA FOR A SOFT TOSSING 21 YEAR OLD MUSSINA.

13 04 2008
gcohen9782

“your an idiot because you are complaining about Phil Hughes not throwing a perfect game every time he is on the mound.”

No I’m not. All I said was he looked a little bat shy. Because he did. Besides that I’m fully confident that he will be a very good pitcher for the Yankees for a long time.

13 04 2008

HES BAT SHY BECAUSE HIS 89MPH FASTBALLS GOT SMACKED AROUND BY THE ROYALS. I’D BE BAT SHY TOO IF I HAD NO FASTBALL!!!

buckfoston17

hey 89 he was hitting 93-94 all night, and he’s the number 3 starter for the New York Yankees, what the hell are you? Does it make you feel better to try and put down a proffesional athlete who will make more in a year than you will in your whole life?

Get a life d-bag

13 04 2008
nicejob34

“your an idiot because you are complaining about Phil Hughes not throwing a perfect game every time he is on the mound.”
……………………………………….

I don’t think anybody is expecting a perfect game… Something better than 3 2/3 innings per start, a run every inning and 24 baserunners in 11 IP’s might be nice, though.

We’re not expecting perfect, just something a little north of PATHETIC!

The guy is completely overwhelmed.

13 04 2008
buckfoston17

Well his velocity has speeded up as the weather has, and i’ve noticed it seeems as if the Umps squeeze him everytime, thats why hitting the corners everytime can be a hit or miss. Such as how Jacoby Ellsbury was easily out in the first AB of the game today.

13 04 2008

Wow. It seems like all the loonies came out tonight. Whiners have no spot on the Yankee fandom. Stay away from the ledge…

Phil will be ok. He’s been great in the minors and he’s shown that he can pitch in the big leagues. It’s not like he’s gonna forget all of this all of a sudden. It’s called growing pains.

13 04 2008

=============

YEAH, 93-94 ACCORDING TO THE ESPN GUN. MY GRANDMOTHER CAN THROW 95MPH ACCORDING TO THE ESPN GUNS.

FACE IT, PHIL “89MPH” HUGHES IS GOING TO GO DOWN AS ONE OF THE BIGGEST BUSTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE GAME! TO THINK, YOU COULD HAVE HAD THE BEST LEFT-HANDED PITCHER OF OUR TIME, INSTEAD YOU HUNG ON TO THE NEXT PAUL BYRD. LMAO!!!!!!!!

Anyone who has truly played know its a game of failures. The only success in baseball is determined by what you get from your failures. Relax, regroup and just go out there and have fun. we all know you will be great. good luck Phil.

Nothing like having your starting pitcher shove a mountain in front of the offense at the beginning of every game.

Enjoy the bus ride back to Scranton, Phil.

don’t let tonight get to you Phil there is a lot of baseball to get to and we all know there will be days like this and days where you have no hitter stuff.
Plus you’re the youngest pitcher in the bigs this is a great way to grow

guys don’t let these trolls get to you. they just come looking for fights.

and we all know the saying about arguing on the internet. even if you win you’re still retarded

89 fastball,

don’t you have anything better to do than hang out on a Yankee blog? why are you so concerned with what we’re doing? homo…….

yanks1219

how many people on this blog are major league pitchers? last time i checked.. just one. So give the guy a break he’s the youngest pitcher in the league and some people expect 8 shutout innings every time out. Theres gunna be a learning curve and some growing pains. Cut him some slack.

johnfromthebronx

89mphfastball go get a life and shut the hell up, phil should throw one of his fastballs in your face, anyway phil it’s just one game, a week from now no one will even remember this, if there were any positives it was the velocity and movement on your fastball, just keep at it man and make us proud!

14 04 2008
baileywalk

Ha, ha. I can’t believe someone has so little to do in his or her life that they would make up an account just to dis Phil. Seriously, get a life. Even if Phil somehow DID bust, he would have accomplished more than you ever have. He’s a twenty-one-year-old starting for the New York Yankees. And you’re sitting on your computer getting off on insulting him. Notice the difference in position? Why do I get the feeling 89mphfastball is just Steve Lombardi masturbating all over himself because he’s so happy Phil struggled at Fenway?

Three Words for you…

Scranton / Wilkes-Barre

The Kei to the season may be the return of Igawa unless they trade him since he is pitching pretty decently at SWB…

14 04 2008

Get off his back, It’s not his fault the umpire was horrible tonight, he was calling Balls for Phil that he called Strike for Matsuzaka. Keep your head up, next outing will be better.

Ah, the Internet, where every stooge can suddenly become a Major League pitching coach. Ignore the haters, Phil. Two words: Strike one. You’re here for a reason.

mrjeter2

89mph,

Yankee fan or not, why would you come on to Phil’s website to act like that? Phil is one of the few MLB players who take the time out to interact with his fans. It’s people like you who could change that if you keep acting the way you are. So again, whether or not you are a Yankee fan or not, whether or not you root against Yankee players like Phil Hughes or not, have some respect for him being that he is nice enough to communicate with his fans and don’t ruin it for everyone else!!!

You are awesome, Phil. Although there are only a few lame-as* bitter Red Sox/Mets fans on here please ignore them and focus on everyone else that knows you are smokin’.

can we all stop giving phil advice?
i think eiland and the staff are knowledgeable enough to help him along when he hits some troubles
also he’s a pro athlete and he’s mad it this far at his young age, so i think he can do the rest without our help too
i’m not saying dont encourage him, you jsut dont need to try to teach him how to pitch in the majors
i think he’ll figure that out
peace
go phil!

Phil,

I am very excited about this new season. You are the main reason. I hope you do not get discouraged about last night. There will be more opportunities to face Boston and show them what you got. You will do well this season. Good luck on your next start!

14 04 2008
albanyyankeefan

Has everybody forgotten Phil’s first start of the year? He DOMINATED the blue jays, who aren’t a shabby team! And don’t forget about him being the only pitcher aside from Andy Pettitte that could keep the ALDS against the Indians close last October. We all know he has the stuff to be a super effective pitcher and win games….everybody just needs to relax. He will be fine. He has had two bad starts, not to mention a pinched strike zone in both of those games. I can’t wait until the day that Phil gets that no-hitter and shuts all of his critics up!!!!!

14 04 2008
dayanks65

First off, ignore the haters, not your best outing, but your velocity seemed good and the strike zone seemed tight, Dice K looked terrible and had a ton of walks. Shake it off, but you certainly don’t need any of us to tell you that.

Second, did you watch the Office yet, they have mastered the make you cringe situation. Hysterical. You must pick up on 30 rock though Phil, I never watched the first season, but picked it up when there were no shows on, watch them online, you will like them.

phil,

is there any way to filter out the idiots from commenting here?

anyway, rough start but i think now that you’ve gotten starting at fenway out of your system you’ll settle down. all you can do is learn from these kind of starts.

don’t you have something better to do with your life?

PLEASE READ.

Phil,

I’m not sure if you actually read these or not, and usually I wouldn’t post; however last night/today is more important than a game of baseball. It appears as though most of the readers on this blog are devout enough to be aware of the goings-on in the Yankee world, and therefore I wish to speak on behalf of the majority. After watching the interview on YES, we learned that Joba makes fun of you for writing this blog, but I would like for you to share with a him a message from all of us. Word has just broken in New York about what has happened to his father, and that Joba has returned home. I just wish for you to express to him from all of us, both the readers and Yankee fans, our deepest sympathies and to let him know that his family is in our prayers. God bless and we hope that for him, and his family, that his father makes a speedy recovery. Thank you for your time.

Tony

Hey Phil~
I totally agree with ‘Kyledunne’ and his comments. Again, as I have stated in one of my previous comments…those of you who feel the need to TRY to tell Phil how to pitch..what to work on….or just to be negative…etc…. The “advice givers” do NOT play MLB, and never will. Phil is a YANKEE. “Advice givers” are bitter people who are not successful in their own lives.
AND, by the way……….. Phil pitched 93MPH on Thurs. April 3rd. I KNOW> I SAT RIGHT BEHIND HOME PLATE AND SAW IT ON THE RADAR GUN. (Second ROW….) HA!!!

yankeefan26171

Phil,
Rough night, but then I think maybe the curse of Big Papi’s shirt buried in the new Stadium must have taken effect. Not only did you guys have 2 tough losses, but the injuries are spreading and now Joba’s father!!

I do hope you pass along to Joba that the Yankee fans are keeping him and his family in our thoughts and prayers. I know he’s got his mind on more important things, but we are all thinking about him and hoping for the best.

As for the wacko 89mph poster – I guess he didn’t see Santana’s game on Saturday, but he looked pretty weak. I’d take Phil over Johan 7 days of the week.

Keep the faith, Phil! we love you!

PS – I’ll be there on Wednesday so the Yanks are sure to win. (Their record is 7 and 1 when I’m at the Stadium!)

14 04 2008
iiviip3

Hey Phil no one wins every start…we all believe in ya man. The big difference between you and Dice-K last night was that his walked batters didn’t cross the plate and yours did. KC and Boston have both run on you so far also. Hopefully those SB #s come down. Anyway I’m a big supporter and just want the best for ya. I’ll always cheer and support ya no matter what. You’ll get ‘em next time.

Huge Yankee fan here, and don’t worry about Sunday. I have faith in you my man! You’re only 21 and you gots lots of years to shut up all the non-believers.
Keep on trucking.

14 04 2008
dougsfc97

Phil- Don’t listen to the impatient Yankee fans. I think many of them either a. never tried to pitch a baseball game at any level or b. don’t realize that there was a time when the Yanks just weren’t a very good team because our pitching staff consisted of washed up free agent acquisitions like Ed Whitson. There are Yankee fans out there who only know the Bernie Williams era forward, which breeds impatience. You’ve got at least 30 more starts. And Matsusaka struggled too- you guys just aren’t hitting right now.

I travel a lot for work and use a Verizon aircard in my laptop. It does the trick from hotel rooms and is not that expensive each month. But, seriously, can’t the Yanks afford the $10.99 per night Internet access fee? If Lonn Trost can sue some idiot who buried an Ortiz jersey in the foundation of the new stadium he can certainly afford $11 for you to get online and watch some Office Re-runs. That said, it wasn’t that great an episode. We need more Creed and Kevin, and way less Jan.

Give Joba and his family best wishes from us Yankee Fans.

14 04 2008

Hi Phil:

I finally got to watch a full ballgame on television last night (I go to school in the city and we don’t have YES), and I was thrilled knowing that you were on the mound. You know better than anyone how it went; but no matter how much things went you kept your composure and I’m pretty inspired by little things like that.

I don’t care about ERA or velocity or anything like that — I know what a great pitcher you are, and from your blog and interviews and such I can tell you’re a great guy too. The numbers will show that soon enough.

So good luck on Friday — and enjoy the weather! Apparently it’s supposed to be sunny and has a high of 72 degrees in Baltimore, so you should be in for your first start in nice weather this season.

(And, like lots of others here, if you could pass along our best wishes and prayers to Joba and Mr. Chamberlain, that’d be great. And, in happier news, offer our congratulations to Alex once his baby girl is born!)

Thanks for everything, Phil — on and off the field.

Everyone has to calm the F down. Obviously last night was frustrating, but who do you think it was more frustrating for, Phil or any of us? The answer is Phil. There is no doubt in my mind that Phil is gonna be filthy. Last night he was sitting comfortably at 92-93 all night with late movement, touching 94 at times. His curve was 72-74 and breaking about 3 feet, freezing guys like pedroia and youkilis. The only problem was control, which has always been Hughes’ biggest strength. Once the command returns, everyone can come off the roof. Lets cut the 2nd youngest player in baseball a little slack. Peace!

14 04 2008
jmas12

your stuff actually looked pretty good last night. the curve was sharp as always and the 2-seamer had alot of life. there were some borderline calls that you weren’t getting but that’s part of the game. just be more aggressive, i know it’s easier said than done but as a great philosophical mind once said, “strikeouts are boring and facist, throw some ground balls, they’re more democratic”- crash davis. don’t worry about being too perfect and maintaining those astronomically high minor league strikeout numbers. keep the ball on the ground, low and over the plate early in the count. it’ll keep the pitch-count down and strikeouts will come. hang in there phil, we’re all behind you.

gcohen9782,
i wasnt saying that Phil is carrying the team on his back. All that im saying is that if he does good and wins 10-15 games the Yankees will do good. I wasnt saying that Hughes is the only one that can pitch on the yankees. Without Hughes the yankees would win 80 something games but if Hughes does good which i have faith that he will then the Yankees will be in the play-offs

14 04 2008
thepocketgeek

Don’t sweat the knuckle-headed Sox fans that are trolling the blog Phil. Any real Yankee fan knows not to expect miracles. It’s a long season and if we’ve learned anything the last few years its that one fact. Sox fans can make as much noise as they want, we’ll see you and the rest of the team in October.
“Have faith in the Yankees, my son…”
Hang in there.
Tell Joba we’re praying for his Dad.
Good luck in your next start.

Alright – all you Phil Hughes supporters – sign up for an etopps account:
https://www.etopps.com/Authenticate/login.asp. Then go on over to CardTarget (a place to buy & sell etopps cards other then using ebay), to the Phil Hughes 2007 rookie card: http://www.cardtarget.com/cgi-bin/card_details.cgi?card_id=3004. Then buy up as many as you can! (there were only 1,200 made; they make a certain run # & that’s it. You can either hold all of your cards in your etopps account (and watch the price like a stock), or you can have the actual card shipped to you by Topps (slabbed & seaded in a holder) if you choose (taking it out of your Portfolio & out of circulation so to speak)- Yes, I own 75 of these myself – but I’m a true die hard Yankee fan…

hughesunderbite

Phil,

Tough break out there against the Red Sox. That ump was pinching you big time. But I’m trying to figure out why you didn’t throw your bread and butter pitch — the meatball? You never have an issue getting that one over the plate when you need it most.

Look at the bright side… you’re certainly not the first young pitcher to wet his pants in a big game. The important thing you really can’t suck any worse next time the chimp hands you the ball.

14 04 2008
hughesunderbite

Another thing to be happy about is the flock of ball-washers you’ve got drooling in anticipation of an acknowledgement from you. You may not have command of a fastball but you’ve got these drones under your spell.

Phil, I know you are taking the last couple of games hard and it is difficult to live with not being your best when you are giving it everything you have. I am a decent golfer, a low handicap golfer, and I learn from my mistakes, and improve on them everytime. You should be doing the same with your mistakes. Learn from them and correct them. I know you are trying to hit the corners and are just missing, maybe you are not trusting your stuff enough. You have everything it takes to make a great pitcher, now go out there and be positive and trust your stuff.

Thanks for the great site. It is too bad that we have to put up with a couple of knuckleheads, but that its the way it is when you open a forum such as this. Ignore them, and maybe they will go away.

Phil,
You are a BEAST, do you remeber when Jorge in 2006 said ” [Phil] has the best arm in camp, no doubt.” That same year pitchers, Randy Johnson and Mariano Rivera were there, two sure hall of famers. Use this confidence and go fricken own the Orioles. Everyone goes through growing pains, obviously Hughes89 is going through his period.
Sincerely, FH
P.S, send Joba and his family best wishes

Phil,
As a Sox fan, I’d just like to let you know that you did look good out there on the mound yesterday. Last year, Dustin Pedroia had the second-fewest strikeouts in the AL, and you got him pretty quickly yesterday. I also just want to say that you’re one of the Yankees I do like–high praise from a Sox fan!

Good luck in your next starts, so long as they aren’t against Boston,
-Liza

PS – Give my best wishes to Joba if you get a chance to speak to him. Let him and his family know we’re hoping everything turns out well. And for an idea, I’ve seen that lots of other people have left comments about Joba; maybe you could print out the relevant comments and give them to him (this is an idea taken from Curt Schilling’s blog, where he told people to leave comments for Mike Lowell after being re-signed this offseason)…

14 04 2008

Hey again, Phil- just wanted to say basically what everyone else is saying at the moment. Give Joba my best and tell him we all appreciate him and hope everything’s going well. Same goes for his dad and sister and anyone else close. They’re all really great people.

hey phil,

Don’t you love how people who know absolutely nothing about baseball try to teach you how to pitch? lol unbelievable…My roommate(bilamos30) and I have complete confidence in you and know its only a matter of time until these trolls eat their words! We were at the game last night right behind homeplate and your pitches looked nasty. Good luck at Baltimore and send Joba our best!

14 04 2008
bilamos30

yo homes,

don’t worry about it, you’ll be fine. its early and was very cold last night. i was at the game last night about 40 rows up behind home plate and your stuff looked filthy. don’t listen to these losers criticizing you; they’re just no talent @$$clowns with nothing better to do with their pathetic lives. these are the same type of d-bags who booed johan santana the other night. your VELOCITY WAS PERFECTLY FINE ACCORDING TO THE FENWAY GUN, AND WAS ON PAR WITH MATSUZAKA’S THE ENTIRE NIGHT.

in conclusion,

-people who criticize those who are better than them are phuck-tards

-people who try to teach those who are better than them are phuck-tards

keep your head up buddy, you’ll be fine… every pitcher will have starts like that. keep working hard and the goods will follow. good luck phil!

to all you haters — eat $hit, bums

Too all the A**hole Redsux fans. Your here busting on Phil? Give me a F’ing break . The Sux paid 100 million for Douche K and he gives up 5 runs a game to the Yanks. That was a steal huh. To show more of your stupidity. You guys argue that Ortiz who sits on his fat a** 98% of all baseball games should be an MVP. Does he even know which hand his glove goes on?

I actually watched The Office! It was really funny, and I saw a few facebook bumper stickers about it already. I’ve seen all the British episodes but only a couple of the American ones.

Also I was bummed to find out that you were away last weekend and this weekend and my entire spring break cause I really wanna go to a game soon.

HE DIDN’T SHIT HIMSELF ON THE MOUND LIKE HUGHES HAS BEEN DOING HIS LAST 2 STARTS!

Keep working hard and thank you for letting us all into your life on this forum. It has been a pleasure to follow your career.

Please also let Joba know we are all thinking of him. I went through the same thing 3 years ago so I totally understand.

Thank you again, Phil…..it will get better

Hey Phil, shake off the rough outings. It happens. It ain’t how you pitch in April, it’s how you pitch in July, August, and so on. Remember, Mantle got sent back to the minors. Look at Pedroia last year, he didn’t hit for months and ended up winning rookie of the year. Nobody with your stuff, work ethic, and attitude can fail.

Please, add my best wishes for Joba and mr. Chamberlain.

Good luck in your next start.

15 04 2008
bethnyyfan

Yankee fans who freak out in April when the team is playing under lousy conditions, traveling at odd hours after a night game and getting umps who have the strike zone all over the place are NOT true fans.

We knew, when we campaigned against the Johan trade, that the kids were going to struggle some this season. Ian looked AWESOME last night, as we knew he would. Phil has some nasty nasty pitches and will be fine. Joba is at home with dad and we send him much love and many thoughts.

Joba’s situation puts the spotlight on how little a game really means. If anyone is putting all their emotions and energy into baseball to the point of wringing their hands in APRIL, well that is just wrong.

The weather will warm up, the kids will be fine, hopefully Harlan is on the mend, and the bats will heat up. From 1-25 this Yankee team should be dominant. And they will be.

True fans live and die with the team.

Sending good thoughts your way Phil. Please tell Ian to take care of his bruise and send Joba my thoughts and concerns. We’re all pulling for Harlan.

Hey Phil–
Those of us who pay attention have every confidence in the world in the Yankee rotation. I’m not going to say your last outing was pretty, but every ML pitcher has those games.
Please send our love and prayers to Joba and Harlan Chamberlin, they are both in the hearts and prayers of Yankee fans and anyone with a parent.
Better luck in the next outing!

Phil….you are going to get better every time you toe the rubber, friend. You do have the stuff to be on the Yankee staff for many years to come. They would NEVER have wanted to trade Santana for you, up there in MinnyLand ( where my sister lives ) if they didnt’ see the talent and potential in you that New York and I am sure every other MLB teams sees as well. We are behind you, pal. Now go out there and knock ‘em dead. P.S. If you can find a way to plug manny in the ribs with a fast ball for all those times that he “posed” after hitting a dinger against the Yankees over the year, just be sure to do it when you are up be about 5 runs ! ;-)

Hey all fans:
I am using Phil’s site for this message because I know he is close to Joba. Joba and Phil have brought so much excitement to NY Yankee fans, that we need to pay back a bit.
If you are all like me, I believe in the power of prayer. I know Joba does, because I see him pray before every outing.
I am asking every Yankee Fan at noon time today EST. and every day until Mr. Chamberlain is better to stop for a few seconds and say a quick prayer for Harlin and the Chamberlain Family.
If we all do it together the man upstairs will have to listen!!
Cliff

Phil tough start in Fenway, but you’ll learn something from it and get stronger from it. The weather didn’t help either. Make the Orioles pay the price this weekend.

If and when you speak to Joba please pass along that his family is in our prayers and our wishes for Mr. Chamberlain’s speedy and complete recovery.

Phil,

Rough outing Sunday, but hey, don’t worry about it. Look at it this way, how many 21 year olds get to say they got roughed up by the Boston Red Sox? Honest to God, I wish I could say that. It’s better than doing statics homework.

Do me and everybody else a favor though, and give the Chamberlain family mine and everybody else’s regards. They’ve gone through so much, and Yankees Universe is pulling for Mr. Chamberlain.

89mph, back under the bridge, troll. It also helped that Kennedy was pitching last night in a 72 degree dome. I’m guessing you’ve never tried pitching, or else you’d know how difficult it is to locate your pitches in 30 degree weather. Kennedy knows, he tried pitching in that kind of weather in KC and got rocked, walking the ballpark in the process.

Phail, don’t listen to the minority of these idiots, you pitched great you had 5 K’s in the first inning, the ump was squeezing the hell out of you and we all saw it, theres still 17 or so games against the Red Sox left, you’ll get them back for this one keep your head up.

15 04 2008
becca3

I’m a Red Sox fan and I can’t believe some of the comments I’m reading. Its disgrace. Some people have suggestions for Phil like he doesn’t know how to pitch. Give the guy a break. He is 21 years old. Phil is gracious enough to have this blog so people can learn about him and different things and some of you feel the need to come and trash him? Somebody had a nerve to say that they should have traded Hughes for Santana. Have you seen how Santana pitched lately? Did you know that he gave up 3 homeruns in one game? Give Phil a chance and he is going to prove you wrong.

15 04 2008
beautifulxmess

Phil, don’t listen to the haters on here. So you had a couple rough ones, funny how some people forget so quickly how great you did last season, almost pitching the no hitter, and in the post season. The people who judge are not your fans, it takes a lot of balls to go out there and do what you do and Yankee Stadium is a very intimidating place. I know you will be fine and end up being a great pitcher for us for a very long time. These asshats being rude to you probably don’t even know how many innings are in a game let alone what it takes to be a pitcher (for the Yankees, at that). Keep up the good work, don’t get down on yourself, there are a ton of us out here in Yankee land who have TONS of faith in you. Good Luck!

15 04 2008
beautifulxmess

Oh yeah and I have to agree with Becca up there, LOL @ traded for Santana. Phil has the ability to be BETTER than Santana and the Yankee brass did the right thing holding onto him. The days of selling off the farm for an older pitcher with a couple yrs left in his prime are gone, THANK GOD. WE LOVE YOU PHIL!

Phil,

Your stuff looked as sharp as it has ever been the other night in Fenway.

That curve Manny hit was nasty and in a perfect location…Manny is just really damn good. I garuntee you throw that in the same situation 99% of the time it will be an out.

Fastball velocity looked good and seemed to have some “late life”. Gameday’s pitchfx showed that ball moving well for the velocity which you were throwing it with (93ish).

Curve had some great late break…looked awesome.

I thought your control wasn’t bad either. I found myself yelling at the tv all night “WHERE DID THAT MISS?!?!?”. I know you’ll never admit it but you were getting SQUEEZED.

With warmer weather and more innings I’m sure the rest of your secondary pitches will come along nicely.

In conclusion, though the result wasn’t what I’m sure you were hoping for, you definitely showed some positive signs. I HIGHLY look forward to your next start…

PS. Do you have anyone who moderates the crap some people post here? You shouldn’t have to deal with censoring the morons…

This will be known as a challenging time in Yankee history but the most storied franchise in the history of sports will get through.

Red Sox fan: you are too cool (I can’t believe I’m saying that but it’s TRUE!!). Thanks for your support of Phil!

Phil: sending good thoughts your way.

A weird question – I know that your dad was a Sox fan, and that Clay Bucholtz grew up a Yankee fan. Have you guys ever discussed this? It’s pretty darn funny.

There’s excellent news that Harlan Chamberlain has improved:

Good game last night even though CMW didn’t seem to have it but he was picked up by the bullpen and the bats. These Yankee / Red Sox games go on for days!!!

Alright – all you Phil Hughes supporters & Yankee fans – sign up for an etopps account:
https://www.etopps.com & click login/register at the top left of the page. Then go on over to CardTarget (a place to buy & sell etopps cards other then using ebay auctions), to the Phil Hughes 2007 rookie card page: http://www.cardtarget.com/cgi-bin/card_details.cgi?card_id=3004. Then register to Card Target & you can buy the cards listed for sale (there were only 1,200 made; they make a certain run # & that’s it. You can either hold all of your cards in your etopps account (and watch the price like a stock), or you can have the actual card shipped to you by Topps (slabbed & seaded in a holder) if you choose (taking it out of your Portfolio & out of circulation so to speak)- Yes, I own 75 of these myself – but I’m a true die hard Yankee fan…

Phil,

I think everyone’s comments here about you, Ian, and Joba demonstrate that we like you guys not just for your talent but for your maturity and your positive attitudes toward the game and life in general. I am excited for every single start you, Ian and CMW make because I always believe you guys have the stuff to be amazing out there (of course, this is also the case when Joba comes out of the pen.) I also love that you guys are smiling and laughing and not taking yourselves to seriously (at least, that we know about!).

Please don’t let uneducated idiots make you jaded. Just think of them as the losers sitting in their mom’s basement that they really are.

diamond23dust

I love all these people who come on here to make the most inflammatory statements possible, looking for some kind of reaction.

First of all, ERA doesn’t mean anything this early in the season. It’s affected dramatically by each inning. But if you want to look at ERA, do you know what Santana’s was when he was 21?

6.49!!!!!!

SIX .49!!!!

FOR THE SEASON!!!

Anyway, Phil looked much better tonight. His command, while not as good as it can be (and will be), continues to improve, and he kept the team in the game.

After the game, Girardi agreed that Phil was better and did a good job keeping his composure and making his pitches…and his opinion is the only one that matters.

18 04 2008
nicejob34

Nothing like having “the next Roger Clemens” crap all over your season once every five days!

Phil, perhaps you should give up these side jobs (there is NO QUESTION you are only doing this for a check) and focus on your REAL job for a change!

And a piece of advice: Invest in some earplugs before your next start at the Stadium!

I cannot believe the Yankees opted to keep THIS guy when they had a chance to deal him for Santana.

18 04 2008
gcohen9782

Phil,

Saw a lot of improvement tonight, fastball and slider looked very good, curve seemed to be a little off. I’m confused because in the Boston game you seemed to have a good 12-6 working, but tonight it seemed to be moving down and in to lefties, almost like 2-7. And where’s that changeup? Anyway I’m not a coach or anything, this is just one fan’s opinion.

& how is this loss phil’s fault?
If its anyones fault its the offense

Maybe if the offense could put up some digits past 2 on the board more often, our pitchers wouldnt be in the position that they’re in.

& besides you guys act like Phil did horrible, he pitched 5 good innings.

Best of luck this season Phil dont listen the ignorance.

You pitched a lot better than your line will show. You were one misplayed ball away from a 6IP 2ER start.

nyy4life

Hey Phil,
Don’t get down too much. Obviously nobody expected you to dominate the league this year. The last start wasn’t that bad, it just looked worse in the box score. You and Ian are going through the same problems, too many pitches. I can’t imagine what it is like to have to face a line-up like Boston or some other teams but I might want to avoid throwing pitches over the plate too. I still believe you have great stuff and you should go out there and show those other teams why the Yankees gave you a spot in the rotation. You are THAT good. But if you are throwing 60 pitches in the first 3 frames, you really aren’t helping yourself or the team.

21 04 2008
Canada Day

Hey Phil, I’m sorry I haven’t checked the blog in a while…you probably know that up here in Canada NHL playoffs=LIFE (I hope you aren’t a blue-shirt fan, as that would utterly disappoint me). But I see you had a rough outing last time out. When I used to have rough outings on the ice or on the mound, I’d usually sit in the woods behind my house and talk to this moose that always roamed around my house, I named him Jean-Francois. When we talked, he would bring peace to my mind and drain my mind of all the frustrations from my previous outings. I would talk to him for hours while we enjoyed some maple syrup from the greatest maple trees in all of Ontario. Jean-Francois would always clear my mind for the next time I would have to take the ice or the mound. Obviously, you don’t have a moose that travels with the team, so think of something to do to clear your head Phil, and go out next time and kick some butt! Stick in there Phil and Good Luck!!!

Best Wishes,
Canada Day & Jean-Francois

Rob Mo

You’re all so angry at 89mphfastball… you do realize by responding to him, you’re feeding right into it, don’t you?

Anyway, there seems to be a lack of balance here between Yankee fans who worship the ground Hughes walks on and general baseball fans who look at each player as just that: a player. Phil has dynamite stuff, but you can’t expect him to win 18 games his first year. Would it be cool (for Yankee fans)? Hell yes. Is it realistic to expect that from a rookie? No. I’m a Red Sox fan, and I still wish Phil luck this season. I mean, come on… you Yankee fans need ONE dominant pitcher this year, you know?

Go Sox.

22 04 2008
generationtrey

Phil,
As I have said in previous posts, our pitching is amazing. And yes that includes you. But, our hitting needs a lot of work. And yes a lot has to do with one another. Comunication between pitching and hitting is key. So go ahead (no fear) and talk to them see if theres something wrong if they dont hit this series in Chi. And btw POST were not mad at you. Oh and I told you, Its passover everyone gets better (go visit Harlan C.).

Okay, so thanks to you, I now am an official blogger, so thank you.

Secondly – your personality seems awesome – it’s great that you have a blog that’s dedicated to you, and not you in baseball. I’ve always wondered what kind of guys you boys are, and you bring personality to just the jersey with a number.

No matter how your successes are on the field – you’re a yankee – you’ve made it thus far – i’m 22… I can totally understand entirely the pressures of failure – and how miraculious it is, that you are the youngest pitcher in the MLB and how awesome it is to know about the real down to earth stuff that happens in your day-to-day life, reguardless being famous or not.

I wish you all the luck in the world, and I hope to see you pitch this season in the Bronx in person – i’ll be making it to alot more games this season so, it’s probable. But-I love your energy, and I wish you all the best.

You seem awesome, if you can reply, if you have a spare minute, that would be awesome. New York City is great, if you can experience it during the season, it’s a great city, so I hope you have the opportunity to go out and explore the city as much as you can while you’re in NY. Enjoy playing – and you know we’re rooting for you. We haven’t given up. We wont.

Hey Phil,

I was just curious about something I heard on the Chicago sports radio today. As you know Girardi is a Chicago guy but they were talking about him and the rule he has about no candy or gum in the clubhouse. Seriously is that true? Candy I can almost understand but GUM? come on. Gum at a baseball game being chewed by players is a part of the game. I was just curious if this was true or it was being made up by a few guys who dont like Joe.

Phil,
Sweep, and were living the dream. One thing we can’t do is let Boston get away. I will see you at the Stadium this Detroit series, I’ll be there. Lovin how were starting to hit. Oh and if I have to eat one more damn piece of Matzah I’ll probably kill myself. It has no taste. Everyday, Matzah cream cheese in the morning, matzah pizza for lunch, then plain Shmura with Meneshewitz wine. Oh and I actually did used to call Doug Mancavitz, Doug Meneshiwitz – not so funny.

Phil: hope you are okay buddy!!! You’re making adjustments and I trust you will be smoking them. If you ever want a “guest blogger” when you’re on the road, let us die-hard Yankee fans know. I’m sure there are a few of us who could come up with great guest columns.

Take care!

Tough break with the rain. Two solid innings. It was probably safer to not risk going back out there, though. Just keep the momentum for next start.

Phil, sucks you could only pitch 2 innings tonight with the rain. It’s good Girardi didn’t put you back out there though, when he was managing the Marlins he did that with Josh Johnson on a 82 min rain delay and had to get TJ surgery and many believe it was because of that. Anyways, atleast you’ll be better rested for your next start.

You got to pitch only two innings, but you did good. It’s a shame you weren’t able to continue. Looking foward to your next start. Kepp it going..

Great job last night Phil, you looked great in your last outing even though you got the loss, and you came back again with first pitch strikes this outing, no matter what anyone says im still glad you’re a yankee :)

Hey Mr. Hughes just wondering if you are going to travel with the team because I’m going to Toronto next week to see your team and I really would like to receive an autograph. Thank you for your time. Good Luck the rest of the season

Hi Mr Hughes I’m a 14 year old guy entering high school at Seton Hall Prep in West Orange,NJ. I am a pitcher and I play for the NJ X-Factors which is a travel baseball team out of Dumont. I throw long toss and run on a treadmill three times a week. Just wondering since you are a major league pitcher if this is the correct workout to be able to compete at the higher level. Thank you for your time.
