Gio's looking good. Hughes looks pretty sharp too.

At the game. Any other Primates here?

I think Hughes' turn around is for real. I would never say this in the newsblog, but the Chatter is the place for being a fan. He's been throwing heat ever since the first five starts or so and I think his arm has finally bounced back from being worn out in 2010.

Gio has looked so good all year. Nothing at all like the good pitcher who looked like he was on the brink of stinking when he was with Oakland. I'm pretty happy the Yanks have put up some runs already.

Yankees are lucky they held Harper at third on Morse's single, which was followed by the double play. I think Harper could've tied up the game on that play.

Was trying to protest how Teddy is treated in President's race but keep losing signal.

9 Ks and 1 ER for Phillip. Nicely done.

I assume that's it for Phil, and it'll be Logan/Wade -> Robertson -> Soriano to close it out?

Let's hope so. No need to push him in a one run game after an off day.

Also, no HRs allowed for Phil! First time this year.

I thought the ball LaRoche hit was going to get out of the park.

I missed that one. I thought Zimmerman might have gotten a hold of one with the bases loaded in the third but Hughes got it in enough and it didn't travel like I thought it would.

Brad Lidge is so terrible. And Desmond gives the Yanks another run! Or maybe LaRoche should have scooped that.

I agree. I'm quickly losing that sinking feeling with Hughes whenever a runner reaches base, which I'd previously had since two years ago this month. What's impressed me most lately is his mound presence, and the fact that he now once again works quickly without the usual pacing and stalling that you'd notice at the beginning of the season. What with Nova and Pettitte pitching above expectations lately, and Kuroda showing signs of his old form, wouldn't it be amazing to think that this run down and worthless starting rotation from April through mid-May might actually be one of the better ones in the league?
