Hey, hey, over here. Look at me!

Phil Hughes in his final start in the Arizona Fall League tonight:

5 innings, 2 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 10 strikeouts. 76 pitches/53 strikes. Both of the hits he allowed were singles. He also struck out four of the last five batters he faced, all swinging.

The Yankees would be flat crazy to trade Hughes. His injuries have all been freak things and he obviously has great ability. Signing big-time guys is fine and it makes sense when there is a need. But the key to putting together a consistent championship contender is developing your own pitching. You need to pay for what a guy will do, not for what he has done for somebody else.
