Phil Franchise: “I want to stay”

I sent an e-mail to Phil Hughes asking him how he was dealing with the trade talk. Here is what he wrote back:

It’s been tough trying to follow any of this the past week. One minute it’s a for sure thing, the next it’s not. I want to stay in NY and its good to know I have the backing of the fan base.

Had the Yankees traded Hughes and Melky Cabrera for Johan Santana, I would said it made sense. But Hughes is a good kid who handles himself well on and off the field and could well become an ace if he finds a way to stay healthy.
