The Q&A with Pete Abraham is up over at his blog. Check it out. It was nice to not have to answer solely baseball questions for a change. Hope you enjoy!

btw Phil nice outing today against some poor unsuspecting college kids…they must’ve been terrified to face Joba, Ian, then you. Luckily for them they got to face Igawa.

Yeah, that cagematch was definitely an upset. You and Joba should rag on Ian for giving up a hit to a college kid

Nice interview Phil! (even if you didn’t use my question 🙂 ).

So you guys (you, Joba, Ian) don’t like to be known as The Big Three? Because that is what we called you guys last winter during the Save the Big Three campaign (see the ad for the tee shirts on http://riveraveblues.com…Pete Abe comments over there sometimes so I’m sure he knows about it). I am not connected to that site, I don’t even comment over there, just read it almost every day and those guys, like most of us, were RABID about keeping the 3 of you. Here in NY we campaigned HARD to keep our Big Three over Johan Santana. So you don’t like that moniker or you didn’t know it existed?

I heard the game today. Everyone was smoking except Igawa….I won’t use your blog to say what I think of him.(I try to stay away from the negative anyway)..but for the rest of you: Nice job guys!!!

Sounds like you and Pete had some fun.

Hey Phil, You talked about one of your favorite restaurants as Flemings. have you ever eaten at Frankie & Johnie’s or F&J the Pine? I know a lot of the guys usually eat there after games… Also often they send food over to the clubhouse. My cousin Gerry run the F&J Pine… and my little cousin Andrew has been the bat boy a few times over the last few years… It’s one of the best Italian rest. in the city. You should check it out if you haven’t yet!

nice interview Phil, you and Pete got some good questions, and I also share the same dream car as you.

Phil, I love the interview, but wouldn’t it make more sense just to take questions on your blog and answer them? I read LoHud daily, but it seems far more efficient to cut out the middle man.

That was a great read. Thanks for doing it.

Great interview Phil. Was at the game today to cheer on my favorite team as well as lifelong friend Michael Consolmagno from Staten Island who got that hit off of Ian. You should def rag on Ian a bit.

Phil Hughes: I’ve gotten to see Metallica before, definitely my favorite band. So any Metallica show I’d choose over anything else.

Man love for Phil.

Nice pitching by the Trinity …congrats on a job well done. Phil ..I’m off to visit your future home tomorrow …Cooperstown… :o) !! I’ll be with a busload of Yankee and Met fans…should be VERY INTERESTING….haha. I’m just hoping the weather cooperates because snow is in the forecast …especially upstate.

I hope everyone is keeping Bobby Murcer in their prayers …I know I am …

Phil,

The interview was fine but not nearly as awesome as the early success you Joba and Ian had today. A great start by all three of you. I wish they would include how hard you were all throwing today in the postgame articles.

I just read a post a few lines up. The Trinity. It’s perfect. I know phil said he didn’t want a group nickname but this is too good.

Great Q&A. And I’d walk away with the whole stadium! A little here and there and before you know it they won’t have to tear it down because I will have every last piece of it! Get what you can, Phil. I’d make sure it was something original to the stadium. Are the seats the same? I’d rip the whole field up, LOL.

bwahahah Moose as Stanley? I totally see that! I agree with the Jeter = Pam b/c so many people want him and Pam is definitely one people in The Office seem to want (Jim, Michael, Toby, Kevin, Roy).

I don’t see Shelley as Dwight at all!!!! I see him more like Andy esp when he’s singing “Take A Chance On Me” to Angela. hilarious.

Anyway, Shelley had a <strong.GREAT GAME today! He was SMOKING. ST going well for the Yankees. Can’t wait to see Andy pitch tomorrow!

G’night all!!! Heading out for bit in da apple!

Interesting interview.

NJ sometimes get a bad rap, but you can actually relax in NJ…avoid NYC as long as you can!

thanks for a great response to my question. I thought that catchers had more say in what pitchers throw, I guess its different pitcher to pitcher, and what pitch is working that day…thanks
