    Phil Hughes' Dominance

    He's been on fire.He has a 2.05 ERA in his last 9 starts. He also had 9 strikeouts over 7 scoreless innings in today's 6-1 over the Jays. As a Yankee fan, this kinda annoys me.

    Would annoy me too. Makes you question your team's ability to develop pitchers...

    One pitcher who broke out in his late 20s does that?
    You have no idea how excited I am right now.

    Yankee's have had more than one pitching prospect go sour in the last few years...

    Might just be the confidence. I remember back at the kingdom the M's couldn't develop any pitchers because they would lose their confidence. Lou would always say it's impossible to get a kid to pitch on the outside against righties, and convince them they did a good job when a little poke to right field turns into a 3 run homer.

    Why would it annoy you? It's not like he went to another AL East team and is thriving. He has never been great as a starter in YS and has been smashed in multiple AL East parks.

    He needed to get out of NY to have any hope of having a positive career moving forward.

    That comes from the fact that the Yankees sign so many compensatory FA and don't get access to upper echelon arms in the draft. That and the fact that they usually don't pick until later on the first round or they trade their younger pitching prospects for major league players.

    I also think some of the Yankee's specs get overrated by BA and BP.

    Either way, Hughes is the beneficiary of a much better pitcher's park in Minnesota.

    I honestly think that would be more likely the reason. I understand that Yankee's stadium is extremely hitter friendly, but the improvement he's having is beyond that IMO.

    He's been more successful away than at home, at least ERA wise. Outside of that all his other numbers appear to be more or less the same. This has nothing to do with his home ballpark.

    This makes sense. I guess I never really realize how many picks they lose from signing players, but I also kind of figured they'd go more for pitchers since they seem to sign a lot of bats.
