Well at least he doesn't have to pitch in Yankee Stadium anymore.

Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy.

I know this is random, but have any of you guys had a dog that strained or tore a groin?


Yeah... My prom date in high school had a real aggressive sniffing dog. It happened while I was trying to act like a decent prom date shaking her dad's hand.

I pulled my groin trying to get away from the dog.

Hughes is a mental midget. Pathetic. It's only one game. The rotation is fine.

Well, maybe it is a good thing we have started the season with all day games. Better to waste time paying attention while working, than actual free time.

If he keeps lobbing it in there it'll probably find a glove sooner or later.

Probably.

On the bright side, both Trevor May and Kris Johnson are on the same appearance schedule as Hughes, and both pitched spectacularly last night. If it turns out that Hughes misses New York after all, Rochester still counts, doesn't it?

I think Hughesey would do a lot better if he got out of the Twin Cities media meat-grinder and the bandbox that is Target Field.

"we are building the staff so we can stay in games, and not get buried right away" looks about as accurate sof far this year as "we are planning to play meaningful games in September" was last year.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

This review stuff has been terrible, let them go out and yell at each other for 45 seconds and get on with the damn game.

Completely agree - there has to be a better / faster way.

That sounds like you're about to sell us something, Billy Mays style.

You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.
