Hey

16 05 2008

Hope everyone is doing well. Not too much to report lately from Tampa. I was in shock when I found out the extent of my rib injury. Not the best way to start off the season to say the least. I will post more when there is more news.

I didn’t get a chance to watch last night’s season finale. So don’t spoil it. Haha. Later

dont worry bout it my man. young pitchers are supposed to have growing pains, even the best prospect of 2007 Mr. Phil Hughes. get well soon brother, i cant wait to see you come back in the 2nd half and making those sox/met fans who doubted you eat crow.

Hey Phil,

Thanks for posting. It’s always great to hear from you!

I know you’re going through a rough time right now, but things will definitely get better :-D

PS: I think the glasses will work for you–I actually think they make a pitcher look more intimidating… just look how much more badass Edwar looks with his on ;-)

Take care and get well soon. Can’t wait to see you back on the mound…it won’t be too much longer now

Phil, you need to get better the team needs you. The starters depth isn’t great this season, but it is nice to see Rasner playing well. Rest up and get back on the mound, we need a 34 in pinstripes out there.

I can’t wait until I get to see your glasses! I got glasses recently and they take a little while to get used to but you end up liking them. It is good to see you are updating again! I hope you get well soon, the injury sounds pretty bad!

Whoa The Office was awesome!!! I can’t believe Jim left Pam for Meredith and Creed was promoted to Manager. Such a shock!!! (of course none of that is true)

Honestly, it was a good show, and so nice to have it back to back with Lost (and not having to flip to the Yankees since it was a day game). I hope you get to watch it soon, as they got some good storylines to establish next season.

I think Dunder Mifflin should start providing paper to the SWB Yankees and have an episode focused on an office trip to the game to see YOU when you make that rehab start. How cool would that be?

Hey Phil, glad to have an update. Can’t wait till you come back. good luck with the whole eyesight thing. I used to pitch and i realized I could barely see the catchers glove… got glasses after that.

Hello Phil,
hope you get better soon and hope to see you pitching again in New York. We were at the subway series today and saw an article about your blog in the Yankees magazine. Now it’s even more competition in the contest I guess ;-).

Hey man hope you get better soon we need you out there. Get well. Start by watching all the seasons of 24, great show man! That’ll fire you up for when you come back.
How exactly did you hurt your rib, I’ve been reading differing reports?
Tell the guys it’s about small ball and not going yard every at bat. Just relax and hit the ball. Shelly looks to nervous and tense at the plate. We all want you guys to win, that’s why we are your fans. Small ball, live it, love it, do it. Pass it on.

=/ ugghh i totally miss watching you pitch. i know, selfish of me to say. i definitely want you to get better, tho! sooo…get better asap. <3 til then, im still watching every game, and loving every time youre in the dugout and they show you or whenever the announcers talk about you! and i hope if you’re going through physical therapy it doesnt kill, cause i just got knee surgery and the physical therapy is such a pain. =[

The hamstring injury last year was nightmare.but the rib injury this year………a blessing. I hope the rib injury was the cause of the disastrious start. If not,Yanks are in trouble.

Phil, I really hope that you get better. But the most important thing is that you take your time. Look at what happened with Alex when he came back to early. It has been a lot fun watching you so far, and I hope that us Yankees fans will be watching you for many many years to come. Go Yanks

Hello Phil,

I had a self travel from Taiwan to USA this early May. Due to the bad weather in Denver, I couldn’t catch my correcting flight and stayed in Chicago first night. After a long long day, I arrived the inn to stay for a night finally. Guess waht, the 1st news in the TV was you were injured. What a shock! I didn’t see you in New York this time. MISS YOU SO MUCH. Hope to see you in person soon.

Good luck with the rehab, Wild Thing.

One thing I will say – you are lucky to have doctors fawning all over you. I suffered a hernia in January, finally had it surgically repaired in April, am now just past six weeks into my recovery, and only within the last week have gotten clearance to lift anything more than 10 pounds. Moises Alou had the same injury, got it repaired the next day, and is already back playing ball. If only I could hit a major league curveball…

HUGHES IS FOLLOWING ALONG THE FOOTSTEPS OF EL DUQUE, SPENDING HALF OF SEASON AFTER SEASON RUNNING ALONG THE BEACHES OF TAMPA!! THIS CLOWN WILL BE IN CARL PAVANO TERRITORY IF HE COMES UP WITH ANY OTHER MYSTERIOUS INJURIES.

BTW PHILLIP, HOW ON EARTH DID YOU BREAK A RIB?? WRESTLING AFTER HOURS WITH SHELLEY DUNCAN?

PHILLY, DID YOU HAPPEN TO CATCH JON LESTER’S NO HITTER TODAY? TALK ABOUT A PITCHER WITH TALENT, HE HAS MORE WINS THAN YOU AND IAN KENNEDY (GENERATION GAY) COMBINED!! WHAT A JOKE YOU GUYS ARE.

sehguhlihp

alright i am not a phil hughes lover but i am above all a yankees fan and last time i checked he is still a yankee. hating on him really does nothing, and comparing him to carl pavano is unfair. The real fans discountenanced verbal bashing by the “so called fans”. jon lester is a great story for baseball considering his past struggles and knowing quite a few survivors and current patients we should all be happy for him. rushing both kennedy and hughes along was not the best plan but we are stuck with the situation now and have to make the best of it. considering our history with heating up in the summer i am not giving up hope yet. as for post bashing it really isnt necessary considering phil isnt even checking this anyway so keep your negative opinion to yourself because no one here is really interested in it.

21 05 2008
Canada Day

Once again, with all due respect champs26times, Pedro has made the all star team twice as a member of the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club.
by the time Carl Pavano’s contract is up after this season, he will have earned $7,990,000.00 per win (5), $2,102,631.58 per start (19), and $23,486.18 per pitch thrown (1701) in pinstripes. Pretty good deal ya got there eh? so quit talkin, us fans just gotta suck it up and gulp down that contract which was the biggest bust of all time.

i’m sorry, but Canada comes first in situations like this and as a Canadian i have a duty to defend one arguably the best pitchers to ever pitch for a baseball club in my “Home & Native Land”.

CANADA DAY OUT!

Hey Phil,

I hoping that u are going well, don’t let any red sox or mets fan get to u I know when u get back I hope u go on a tear and come with a comeback winning streak so you don’t ending up with a losing season record. So good luck and get better soon because the Yankees and the fans need you.

Hi Phil, first time poster, long time fan. You’re by far my favorite pitcher to watch, you have the sickest curve in the league. I just got one question for you- Whats with all this golden thong weirdness? You part-take?

22 05 2008
bosoxwschamps

I disagree. Buchholz’s curve is nastier. I watched a hitter hit the deck thinking it was going to hit him in the head and then it just drops in for a strike. Ridiculous.

Hey Phil, we missed you around these parts. I know the idiotic commnets must be tough, but those of us that count (fans) wish you the best and a speedy recovery -but not too fast, make sure you are healed first!!

Will miss ya in Pittsburgh though I fear… With that GO PENS!! and thank goodness we got a win yesterday so I can watch ESPN today!

Take care,

hey phil, i hope you’re enjoying the weather down in tampa, it hasn’t been great here in NY until today – you would have thought you were living in seattle all the rain we had here this week.

Anyway, Dr. Hershon (the team orthepedist) is the man, he is my Mom’s doctor actually, and he’s fantastic at what he does, so i’m convinced, you’re in good hands.

Otherwise, enjoy some good tv, channel good energy, focus on what matters, heal, and work mentally on the reason you love baseball. The big picture, i’ve learned being the same age – puts things in perspective – you can better yourself. Only you. So do what you have to do in Tampa, get yourself prepared, and we – the fans, look forward to seeing you fresh and healthy when you are ready for us.

It’s great to see you’re still actively blogging, make sure to do it more – it’s great to hear from you. :D

Happy Early Memorial Day

Do you even have any friends? I guarantee that you wouldn’t have the balls to say anything like this in person. Do you think Phil really gives a sh** about anything you have to say? & BTW IPK pitched great yesterday. I cant wait till Phil & Ian prove you wrong. There here to stay

Kevin,

We don’t have much info now, but should know more really soon. He’s scheduled to have an x-ray soon (like within the next week or so) to see if the fracture has healed.

Once its determined that the rib is better they can set the rehab plan.

hi, I am 19 years old, I come from Taiwan, I am sure that you know where Taiwan is, but my point is i hope you can carry on for yourself, all the fans of Yankees and Yankees, I hope you can come back and strike out all the hitters…
anyway, i will be Yankees fans forever!

Phil,
As you know getting back into this rotation is going to be very difficult. The transition from Joba has begun and it’s only time until he’s starting. They found talent in Darry and he’s prooving us wrong. Ian is finally pitching. And they are not getting rid of the vets and Chein. So from my opinion you need to start proving yourself because last year we saw a future ace pitch. Wheres that Phil? Generation Trey is dead without you. Sure theres Joba and Ian but theres no Phil theres no one from California. Theres no Sunshine (Remember The Titans). So we need you Phil. To win the Yanks need the three yoots (My Cousin Vinny) back.
Lets Go Yankees,
David

generationtrey,

Did you get the memo? Phil Hughes has a broken rib. His rib has probably been broken since the season first started (when the whole team got sick). He doesn’t need to prove himself. He is the youngest pitcher in the majors. He needs to get better (with time) and get back to what he has always done. I seriosly doubt the Yankees wont have “room” for him in the rotation. BTW Ian is from California.

GEE, I FEEL SORT OF BAD FOR WILLIE RANDOLPH, CONSIDERING HE WAS AND ALWAYS WILL BE A PROMINENT YANKEE

Hey Phil, I hope your rehab is going well. If you have time to write, it’d be interesting for us to hear what its like to go through rehab during the middle of the season and any updates. Hope to see you at the stadium sometime in July or sooner.

Looks like 89mphfastball needs to stop by Bellevue.

Don’t pay attention to the haters Phil. Just get healthy and work hard to come back. Good luck! :-)

ey man too bad about the injury. I wouldnt worry too much about a spot in the rotation, you are the future ace of our staff along with JUSTIN lol. Take your time coming back so you dont hurt yourelf worse. You have a long career ahead of yourself. The team is doing ok with out you right now. Good luck with the rehab. three amigos fan

energywins08

Don’t know if you noticed, but we need you to get healthy and be yourself!!! And please please can something be done to get rid of Latroy Hawkins…There are young guys down in AAA who can get the job done like you three and it is time to promote them!

Just my opinion…not trying to knock Joe, actually think he is and going to be a great manager, just wanted to get my opinion across. Hawkins doesn’t have the balls to do it here in NY!

Yankees need you back and I need you for my fantasy team. “Office”finale was nice. Hell’s Kitchen is good too. Darrel Rasner is holding down the fort nice for ya. Best of Luck in your recovery. Hope to see you out there soon.

Can’t wait till you get back man. Take it easy and drink lots of milk…or something, I don’t know. Just come back healthy so we can kick some ass. You’re the man and fuck the sox blah blah blah. Awesome. Later.

Phil-
All these doubters are absurd. You know you got talent and I know you got talent. Anyone that saw you pitch a near no-hitter cannot deny that. Not to mention you play for a team that anyone on the planet can only dream of playing for- America’s team, the greatest franchise in sports history (undeniable).

I am a 22 year old Yankee fan living in Providence, RI where I just graduated college and I have to deal with the most arrogant Red Sox fans on the planet every day of my life just like you do on this blog. I keep on smiling bc i know Yankee fans are the greatest in the world. Red Sox fans would rather see the Yankees lose than their team win, and if one considers that being a true fan, then their sense of reality and loyalty is majorly distorted. Hell, I can definitely see where they come from, 1996-2000 was a time when a lot of aggression and jealousy got built up and now it’s their time to release it.

Keep rehabbin dude, and I can’t wait to see you get out there and prove people up here is ‘Red Sox nation’ wrong. Hope all is well in Tampa and keep those legs strong!

Phil ,

I miss seeing you pitch every five days. I can’t wait till you come back in the second half and show everyone the real Phil Hughes like last year , in the regular season and hopefully in the playoffs. I hope to see you pitching soon. I can’t wait.

Hey Phil,

Dont worry. Just get ready to pitch again. We need you!

And remember what ever garbage you hear from fans just remember you are pitching for the NEW YORK YANKEES at age 21!

Good luck man!

jOBA MADE HIS DEBUT LAST NIGHT

4 06 2008
Canada Day

guys don’t get all worried about joba’s first start…i mean after all, he was facing Canada’s team. hope he shakes it off and does better against the american ball clubs!

now i leave you with the lyrics to the official song of Canada’s ball club, “OK Blue Jays (Lets Play Ball!)”

You’ve got a diamond
You’ve got nine men
You’ve got a hat and a bat
And that’s not all
You’ve got the bleachers
Got ‘em from spring ’til fall
You got a dog and a drink
And the umpire’s call
Waddaya want?
Let’s play ball!

Is that a fly ball
Or is it a seagull
Coming in from the lake
Just to catch the game?
It’s the last inning
Our guys are winning
Dave’s put down a smoker
A strike
And you’ve got no doubt
(You’re out!)
Waddaya want?
Let’s play ball!

OK (OK!)
BLUE JAYS (BLUE JAYS!)
LETS (LETS!) PLAY (PLAY!) BALL!

It’s a beautiful evenin’, fans
At the ballpark
When the game starts
Warm summer breezes
Sun’s goin’ down
And it’s all dark
At the ballpark
But that’s okay…it’s a night game

OK (OK!)
BLUE JAYS (BLUE JAYS!)
LETS (LETS!) PLAY (PLAY!) BALL!

OK (OK!)
BLUE JAYS (BLUE JAYS!)
LETS (LETS!) PLAY (PLAY!) BALL!

Bring on the White Sox
Bring on the BoSox
Bring on the Brewers
The Rangers and the Yankees too
We’ll beat the Indians
We’ll beat the Tigers
We’ll beat the A’s so bad it’ll make
Billy blue
Waddaya want?
Let’s play ball!

OK (OK!)
BLUE JAYS (BLUE JAYS!)
LETS (LETS!) PLAY (PLAY!) BALL!

OK (OK!)
BLUE JAYS (BLUE JAYS!)
LETS (LETS!) PLAY (PLAY!) BALL!

i thought joba did well last night considering the fact that toronto knew he could only throw 60-75 pitches. We now have 2 big game aces on our hands in new york in hughes AND chamberlain!!!

Canada Day: Shut up. You retard Toronto-nians? are NOT Canadian. You give real Canadians a bad name. Take that Jays song and shove it. The Yankees are the real deal, the Jays just live in awe – just like every other team in the Majors. 26 – not enough.

89mph – what are you? A Red Sox fan?

Phil – From a real Yankees fan from an actual part of Canada, not just the joke city we send the rejects to, get well soon my friend. I love watching the whole staff pitch, and I can’t wait to see that 34 back on the mound.

Canada Day: HA! I don’t care.

How about that giant boomer from Giambi? Where’s Toronto’s team now? Notice I didn’t say Canada’s, because even though we don’t have a choice, they aren’t our team.

1 win at a time boys…

A few days late, but here is an update on Phil Hughes from yahoo sports:

May 29 Hughes isn’t expected to be cleared to throw for at least another week after a bone scan of his injured ribs revealed a “hot spot,” according to the New York Daily News.

Advice: Hughes is expected to have another bone scan next week as he continues to struggle with the injury. He’ll likely need a month of rehab once he is deemed healthy.
