Changeups, lots of them

Hughes

Both Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain were in the mood for joking around this afternoon.

Hughes pitched first this afternoon, then he stood outside the cage to watch Chamberlain’s batting practice session. He was waiting for Chamberlain so the two could do their running together, but Hughes said he would be fine with everyone writing that he was actually there to size up the competition.

“I’ll roll with that if you want me to,” Hughes said.

As for Chamberlain, he was happy with his work today, but he seemed to enjoy being asked about the slider that almost hit Jorge Posada.

“Don’t take so many swings off me so early,” Chamberlain said.

Here’s the audio from those two. You’ll hear both Chamberlain and Hughes talk about throwing a lot of changeups today. That’s a pitch that needs some hitter reactions to get a good gauge of how well it’s working.

First Chamberlain.
