CC Sabathia was good but Justin Verlander was much better as the Tigers beat the Yankees last night.


Phil Hughes will be on the mound tonight, looking to win a big-league game for the first time since Sept. 27, 2007.

For obvious reasons, the Yankees need Hughes to be good. But beyond stopping a losing streak, they also need a solid starter to join the rotation until Chien-Ming Wang is ready. I predicted several times during spring training that Hughes would play a significant role with the team. Here’s his chance.

Hughes is 5-7, 5.15 in his career and he’s much better than that. Now would be the time to show it.
