Tough break, because he was damn good.

ESPN.com - Rookie has no-hitter into seventh before leaving game


    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Phil Hughes was working on a no-hitter in the seventh inning of his second major league start when a hamstring injury cost him a chance to make history.

    The Yankees' prized prospect is expected to miss four to six weeks, a sour end to an otherwise encouraging night for the last-place club. New York responded to criticism from owner George Steinbrenner in a big way Tuesday with a 10-1 rout of the Texas Rangers.


The silver lining to this, of course, is that the Yankees have at least one awesome pitcher in their farm system. Even if this year ends up being lost in the end, a rotation in 2008 boasting Wang and Hughes will be an intimidating one.

F*CK!!!

I was following this game into the sixth. At least Hughes had a better outing than last week - glad to see him rebound. But damn...

One good 6 1/3 inning start does not mean he is now an established pitcher. Ask any Red Sox fan about the legendary night Kevin Morton in 1991 on a Friday Night struck out 10 Tigers in his major league debut and then did nothing the rest of his career. Billy Rohr in '67 taking a no-hitter into the 9th, then doing nothing again. One start against a team that was no-hit a few weeks ago means he had 1 good start, 1 bad start, and he's out for a month. This could be considered more of an indictment on the Texas offense than anything else.

Perhaps you're right. But the different here is Hughes is the big prospect. We're expecting this kind of pitching out of him, based soley on the years he's had leading up to this. This isn't a case of a random rookie having a good outing. Not many rookies make headline news when they're called up.

Right, like that Ian Kinsler scrub.

Seriously though, this staff is just cold straight snakebitten this year. Pavano's just being Pavano, but the rest of the staff... how much bad luck can one team really have?

Normally when you hear something like this happened to a pitcher you just assume the Cubs were involved somehow. Surprising to see they weren't.

How many hamstring issues have the Yankees had this year? And didn't they can their entire training staff from last season? I'm not sayin' nothin', I'm just sayin'...

Having Mussina means it was bound to happen. Wang was already injured at the start of the season, but nothing serious... yet. But yeah, when Karstens and Hughes go down, something's off.

The Rangers have one regular in Kinsler who is hitting over .256. They have a team .230 batting avg and .299 team OBP.
Hank Blalock .253 1 8 .307 OBP
Michael Young .207 2 14 .228 OBP
Mark Texiera .223 2 6 .336 OBP
When those three guys are doing absolutely nothing, it is tough for the offense to do anything.

Um, they've played 27 games of a 162-game season, they're only three games below .500, 6.5 games out of first place and they're in the same division as the freakin' Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

Isn't it just a little too early to start calling this a lost season? Or have Yankees fans just been spoiled by regular-season success for so long that they're waving the white flag the moment things get a little tough?

For me, it's not about the wins and losses. It's the fact that for the last four years or so, it's been clear as day that the Yankees rotation is too old, and Cashman has done diddly squat except keep re-signing them.

As things are today, this situation has been allowed to fester to the point where the whole Yankees TEAM is now pretty old and subject to unsurprising injuries.

The pros are that Cashman has kept Melky Cabrera and Kevin Thompson. Also, that he's resisted the ways of old by keeping Hughes and Karstens.

Injuries are part of the game. But when you are spending $200 million on a team, I'd like to think you're not just buying players when they're at their peak... cuz clearly, they're only going to decline.

Color me sick and tired of Cashman's lack of urgency in making the rotation younger. Ironically, the rotation RIGHT NOW is a lot younger than it's ever been, thanks to all the intended starters (save for Pettitte, who's bound to get injured any day at the rate he's being used) going down.

Last thing the Yankees need is for Hughes to become the next Francisco Liriano. I'd much rather they let him work on things in AAA once his rehab is done, and bring him up in September like the original gameplan was in April. Why sacrifice your future for the sake of trying to potentially win a few more games? I don't care if they're on a 20-game losing streak. One pitcher will not save your team, which is why this is retarded.

Has he been put on waivers already this season? My understanding of baseball waivers is that the waiver can be rescinded the first time. I guess time will tell.
