Just spoke to Brian Cashman. He said Phil Hughes’ stay with the Yankees is directly tied to how long Mike Mussina is on the disabled list.

“He could be here for one start, it depends on when Moose comes back,” the GM said.

I asked Cashman why they had abandoned their development plan for Hughes so quickly.

“I always said that those were theories. The reality of the season and our needs took precedence. We need a starter and he is the player best prepared to give us a start,” Cashman said.
