  • Hughes Making Splash

    I know it's early but there's alot of chatter going on in camp about the kid.
    I was just going over his ML numbers and they look very promising.
    "After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

    Yea I like the kid alot. He's drawing comparisons with Roger Clemens!!! They say he has a 95mph fastball and a good curve. The thing is he had a great slider but isn't allowed to use it in the minors for fear of hurting his arm. He's only 19 so he's probably going to double A. We may see him as soon as 2007.
