Hi, nice to meet you

Phil Hughes has started six games this season. His catchers:

April 3: Molina
April 8: Posada
April 13: Molina
April 18: Moeller
April 24: Molina
April 29: Stewart

Six games, four catchers. It’s not an excuse, clearly Hughes has to pitch better than he has. But I would imagine it’s hard to get in synch when you haven’t been caught by the same guy for two games in a row.

Jorge Posada’s injury really does have far-reaching implications. Hughes is certainly one of the victims.

Meanwhile, the Yankees left 13 runners on base tonight, six in scoring position. They just can’t get on any kind of roll offensively. Missing Posada and A-Rod certainly doesn’t help that.

Lots of treading water so far. They’re fortunate no team has jumped out in front in the division.
