Bring up Hughes

New, comments

Phil Hughes pitched well tonight in Scranton's 3-2 win over Buffalo. Why not let him take over Ponson or Rasner's spot in the rotation? If he sucks, so what? At least he'll be learning in the Bigs as opposed to Ponson and Rasner who at this point are just taking up space. They have no long term future with the club. Hughes does.

 

- Not to pile on Arod (who had a solid game), but Tyler Kepner pointed out that he hasn't driven in a runner in the playoffs since Game 4 of the 2004 ALCS. 38 runners have been on base since then, none of them driven home by Alex.

 

- Three runs or less counter: 56 games (42%). They're not even giving themselves a chance to win in nearly half their games.
