The LoHud Yankees Blog

A New York Yankees blog by Chad Jennings and the staff of The Journal News


Welcome to the web, Phil Franchise

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Jan 16, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Phil Hughes is already down in Tampa working out. He also set up his own weblog. It’s brand new but he has two posts up and we’re told there will be more on the way.

We’re pleased to say that Phil linked to this blog, so it’s the least we can do to return the favor.

Now that Phil is blogging, maybe we can get some other Yankees on line. I even have titles for them:

Tales From the Trainers Room by Carl Pavano.
I’ve Actually Got Plenty To Say by Chien-Ming Wang.
The Alex Rodriguez Weblog by Cynthia Rodriguez.
Krazy Kyle’s Korner by Kyle Farnsworth.
Ask Hank by Brian Cashman.

Register those domain names now. They could be worth something.

    Dude. Zomg. That is awesome.

    That just turned my day from ‘awful’ to ‘awesome’.

    Seriously.

    Awesome.

    Good stuff, Pete!

  3. Whatever January 16th, 2008 at 10:36 pm

    Pete, Phil has been on the web since last off-season at PhilipHughes.net. It didn’t just start now. Phil’s a great guy and he’s done alot for his fans.

  4. Jeff NJ January 16th, 2008 at 10:36 pm

    How do we know this is really Phil’s weblog? I don’t even see any pictures, except the clothesline he is hawking.

  5. UtilityMan January 16th, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    My day wasnt much better Rebecca…..glad to here it got better.

  7. Whatever January 16th, 2008 at 10:41 pm

    Jeff, It’s Phil.

  8. Rob January 16th, 2008 at 10:42 pm

    His website and forums are closing down in a couple days, but he did confirm his new blog on there. The forums had contests and giveaways for autographed and game-used memorabilia. As a member I’m sad to see it go, but I guess the blog is easier to run.

    Pete, come on man, you have GOT to add it to your blogroll.

    I mean.

    Seriously.

  12. Sarah from Manhattan January 16th, 2008 at 10:50 pm

    I’m too shy to say this to Phils face and on his forum or his other website.. but I just have to!

    he’s so hot OMG!

  13. Bob January 16th, 2008 at 10:57 pm

    The Grease Pit, a blog by Jason Giambi

  14. Ummm.... January 16th, 2008 at 11:03 pm

    That has to be the ugliest and least informing blog in the short history of the genre.

    Jesus christ, somebody tell Hughes that blogging isn’t about selling clothing lines or fan giveaways , rather an honest forum to express thoughts as well as a historical narrative of ones daily life.

    He makes 38pitches look like f-cking William Shakespeare.

  15. Sarah from Manhattan January 16th, 2008 at 11:06 pm

    umm… show some respect for phil.. his site is only 2 days old! give him some time! and whats your problem? why are you criticizing his clothes? If you want to learn about the man then you have to accept the whole man.. he’s trying to express what he likes. Leave him alone!

  16. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Save the Three Musketeers! January 16th, 2008 at 11:10 pm

    Ummm….

    You ever tried it?

    Give him some time. When I first started, with my personal blog, way back in 2003, I just posted quiz results like ‘what color are you?’ type stuff.

    He’ll get better.

  17. Christina January 16th, 2008 at 11:12 pm

    It’s his website, most definitly. I ran into the kid that runs it when I saw Phil this past summer.

  18. Scooter January 16th, 2008 at 11:13 pm

    I don’t know if you guys have seen the latest Hank ‘interview’:
    http://www.startribune.com/sports/13851951.html

    I’m really confused.

    Pete – Howard Rubenstein told you that Hank and Hal SHARE power, right?

    So how does Hank say THIS?
    “It really comes down to if I want to do it, I can do it, but I want to try and keep everybody happy.”

    The article states clearly that Hank isn’t sure if he wants to do it, that Brian Cashman and Hal don’t want to give up the talent, and others (including Hal) see money as an issue.

    If Hal is OPPOSED to the deal, how the heck can Hank “do it”?

  19. Ummm.... January 16th, 2008 at 11:18 pm

    Why should I show respect to Phil?

    Because he has ankles as fragile as my grandmothers antiques?

    Or because he pitched like a 3rd slot starter most of the year?

    Oh I know, because he’s SOOOOOOOOO HOTTT OMGGG!!!

    He’s not expressing what he likes, he’s advertising. Give me quality content and I won’t criticize.

    Tell me how you’re feeling for the start of the season. How’s your hammy? How do you feel about a rotation plagued with rookies? What are you going to do for the New York Yankees in 2008?

    Don’t give me LRG clothing.

  20. Ummm.... January 16th, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    As I write this he already changed the format of his blog. Maybe he’s listening and will add content.

    I’m honestly not trying to troll. Just giving my opinion.

    Rebecca – I’m currently taking 18 credits this semester and graduating in April , all of them advanced courses. If I could throw a baseball every 5 days, and especially if I had the entire winter off I could come up with something better than LRG clothing.

  21. Sarah from Manhattan January 16th, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    he’s 21 .. he’s a kid expressing his feelings! leave him alone! He just wants to be a young guy like everybody else!

  22. Khoa January 16th, 2008 at 11:27 pm

    Pavano actually had a blog last year:

    http://www.dicegay.com

    Just like his baseball career, he stopped midway through.

  23. Jesse January 16th, 2008 at 11:31 pm

    BongwithWang…seeing as how his last name actually rhymes with the first word not as suggested earlier.

  24. Ben January 16th, 2008 at 11:31 pm

    Ummm. . after reading your one before last post was gonna say your an a. . hole now i’ll say your just stupid. If you don’t like it don’t go there whats the point to rip him with all those crazy arguements if you’re just giving your opinion? Sara i hope Phil reads all your posts. lol.

  25. Ummm.... January 16th, 2008 at 11:32 pm

    you’re*

    Lets Dance when were down by 10 runs by Melky Cabrera

  27. Ben January 16th, 2008 at 11:36 pm

    Bags pls explain?

  28. Joe Buck ruins my life with his bad MLB/NFL playoff announcing January 16th, 2008 at 11:43 pm

    Phil has had his own website and forum for a long time now.

  29. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Save the Three Musketeers! January 16th, 2008 at 11:44 pm

    Ummm…

    I’m taking 18 credits, graduating on May 11 including the followng:

    Senior Thesis
    Neurology
    History of Disease
    International Law
    Transnational Politics

    So don’t play the academic battle with me, at least, not this semester.

    You’re not going to win.

  30. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Save the Three Musketeers! January 16th, 2008 at 11:49 pm

    testing

  31. McLovin January 16th, 2008 at 11:52 pm

    Mr. Pettitte’s HGH Wonder Emporium.

    Great blog.

  32. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Save the Three Musketeers! January 16th, 2008 at 11:52 pm

    Ummm…I’m also taking 18 credits and graduating this semester.

    Don’t play the academic game with me. You’re not going to win.

  33. Bronx Liaison January 16th, 2008 at 11:55 pm

    Don’t you realize Phil’s weblog will probably pick up once there is actually a baseball season (or Spring Training) to blog about. I don’t think he wants to write too many posts until he is certain of his future. Common sense is not so common, huh?

  34. Blargh January 16th, 2008 at 11:56 pm

    Damnit, isn’t senior year supposed to be when you’re coasting through to finish off your college career? Not piling on credits like it’s your sophomore/junior year.

  35. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Save the Three Musketeers! January 16th, 2008 at 11:58 pm

    Blargh: I wish! I mean, I could go that root, but if I do the thesis I get to graduate with distinction :-D

    And I have a soft spot for international law and transnational politics.

    And I was missing a science and neurology was the only thing available without a lab that wasn’t at an ungodly hour of the morning that was on the LIST.

    And I’ve wanted to take the history of disease course for AGES now.

  36. whoa January 16th, 2008 at 11:59 pm

    My guess is that his hits are up as a result of this post. ;)

  37. Scott January 17th, 2008 at 12:02 am

    I don’t know if Kyle Farnsworth could get away with the name of his blog. To many K’s if you get my drift. I’m pretty sure Al Sharpton would be all over him.

  38. Drew January 17th, 2008 at 12:07 am

    um, isn’t this Phil’s website?
    http://philiphughes.net/

  39. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) January 17th, 2008 at 12:10 am

    I’m willing to give up the “Respect Jeter’s Gangster” blog name if Jeter comes a knocking.

  40. KG86 January 17th, 2008 at 12:24 am

    Ummm…. January 16th, 2008 at 11:20 pm

    ———————————————————–

    Advanced courses in what? What’s so advanced about taking undergrad courses? Get over yourself buddy.

  41. Ummm.... January 17th, 2008 at 12:25 am

    I like since I’ve posted;

    a) They completely changed the format of the blog, from a 1996 geocities look to something respectable.

    b) Added a post, with a picture of the family and some more (albeit useless) content.

    Power of opinion.

  42. Old Goat January 17th, 2008 at 12:28 am

    Running a site can be tough. Personally, I give Phil Hughes credit for doing it. Heck, even though I can’t stand 38pitches, I think he deserves some credit for making himself more accessible to his fans.

    Fernando, please understand that I am older… what the heck does Respect Jeter’s Gangster even mean? :shock: And shouldn’t it be Gangsta? ;)

  43. JoeT YANKEES January 17th, 2008 at 12:31 am

    this is a comment from his first blog entry:

    Phil,
    Visit: http://38pitches.com/ – read.

    As long as you do exactly the opposite of what this man does with his blog, all will be good.

    Looking forward to hearing more from you & seeing you this spring. Best of luck.

    -Dewey

  44. Ummm.... January 17th, 2008 at 12:31 am

    KG86:

    This young lady pulled the “Why don’t you better card?”, which everyone with half a brain knows is the 2nd least intelligent thing to say behind “You’re ugly”.

    I simply responded that I’m preoccupied and don’t have the luxary of dressing up as a little leaguer and throwing a ball 60 feet to Jorge Posada.

  45. Old Goat January 17th, 2008 at 12:59 am

    Ummm, seriously, you have some issues.

  46. Wolf In Pinstripes January 17th, 2008 at 1:20 am

    Drew – yes that’s his website, but it’s closing down.

  47. saucy January 17th, 2008 at 2:14 am

    so Pete, will Phil be guest blogging here later this month?

    :)

  48. jimmy1138 January 17th, 2008 at 6:32 am

    There’s actually something like a “blog” on Kei Igawa’s website
    http://www.k-igawa.com/ksself
    Major drawback: it’s Japanese only.

  49. Yanksrule57 January 17th, 2008 at 7:52 am

    You probably won’t read this umm, but it’s prety arrogant to expect a young man like Phil to have a sophisticated blog right out of the chute.
    These blogs don’t magically appear overnite. They take thought, preparation, experimentation. I’ve corresponded at length with several successful bloggers and their stories are strikingly siomiliar re the development and evolution of their sites. Since you are taking “advanced classes”, these concepts should be within your grasp. What I am trying to say is give the kid a break!

  50. Bob from NJ January 17th, 2008 at 8:21 am

    Your obsession with Pavano is disturbing.

  51. Florida Yank January 17th, 2008 at 9:04 am

    Sarah in Manhattan -

    Sorry to inform you that Phil is spoken for. I met his lady last year and she is very supportive of anything and everything he does.
    Someday your prince will some ….

  52. Drew January 17th, 2008 at 10:02 am

    “# Wolf In Pinstripes January 17th, 2008 at 1:20 am

    Drew – yes that’s his website, but it’s closing down.

    Ah- thanks!

  53. saucy January 17th, 2008 at 11:10 am

    jimmy1138 – plug that URL into a google search and click “translate” when the results come up (it should be the only one).

    not sure how to comment or anything though.

  54. jimmy1138 January 17th, 2008 at 2:01 pm

    @saucy:
    I’ve done this with some Korean and Japanese sites and the results were always completely awful. Automatic translators just don’t get these languages. Maybe you get a fair idea about what he’s talking generally but you’ll miss out all the details.

  55. Steve N. January 17th, 2008 at 4:57 pm

    Thanks, Pete.

    One suggestion…how about adding PHil’s blog to the list of linked blogs on the right hand side of your page? I’ve looked, but I haven’t seen it there, yet.

    Steve

  56. Kevin January 17th, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    Those domain are very creative, I love them!!!
