Good s tuff, im lovin it.

1. i think joe will do exactly what u said with regards to the DH thing.

2. I think damon actually wont bitch to the press that much. I mean i know he's a free speaker but...

A. no one wants to be the one to sour the yanks amazing comeback

B. This is the one team with enough vets to keep him in check, IMO...

3. in the playoffs, who moves to the pen: Hughes or moose???


I hope you're right about Damon, but he already spoke up once about not liking sitting on the bench. If he can play just enough to keep him happy, I'm fine with that. I like having speed on the bench for key pinch-running situations.

3. in the playoffs, who moves to the pen: Hughes or moose???

It's going to depend on the rest of the season. Here's what I think is going to happen. I think Hughes is going to dominate the rest of the year. He's just now getting his feet under him, by September, he's going to be rolling. Moose is pitching for a post season spot, but I don't think he has it in him.

The only thing to worry about is that you KNOW Joe favors Moose in his own mind right now. If Moose is decent between now and then (even if Hughes is just a little better), it's going to be Moose in the rotation.

yea, im afraid he might play the whole moose has playoff experience card...

but somewhere deeeeep in the back of my mind, i ask myself--what if thats true? lol

or rather what if it's a valid point, i mean..

It's a tough call. Moose has started 21 post season games, and his career numbers are good. But he isn't that pitcher anymore. The past two years in the post season, he's 1-2 with an ERA north of 5.00.

I always tend to lean toward youth. And honestly, Hughes it eh future of this franchise. I want him on the hill, in October, getting used to it, because I envision him starting game 7's in coming years. I think the kid can handle it. (Am I getting ahead of myself w/ him? Sure hope not.)
