New York Yankees Starting Pitcher Phil Hughes Participates

Game #6 of the American League¬†Champipnship Series¬†is upon us. The Yankees face elimination once again, as they send Phil Hughes to the mound in Arlington, Texas. Hughes owns a a record of (W-L, 6-1) with a 3.75 ERA in 8 starts on five days rest this season. Back in 2007, Phil Hughes relieved Roger Clemens in Game #3 of the ALDS, and tossed 3 2/3 scoreless innings to keep the Yankees alive. He was smacked around like he was tossing batting practice in his last start, so it’s hard to pitcture him doing any worse. This will be the most important start of Phil’s career, and he may never get another chance like this.

Dave Eiland’s Game Plan:

  1. Establish the Fastball on both sides of the plate
  2. Introduce the Curveball early
  3. Use the Changeup

Feel free to say a prayer…

“Our father who art in the Bronx, Baseball be thy name..Thy will be done…The Playoffs won……On the field, as well as in the bullpen…Give us this day our bat & glove, and forgive us for our errors, as we forgive those who homer against us. Lead us not into defeat, but help us beat the Rangers. In the name of the fans, Mr Steinbrenner and in the name of the Yankees. Amen” – The Lord’s Prayer

“Do not be afraid of the Rangers. The Yankees, your God, who are going before you, will fight for you, as they did for you in Minnesota, before your very eyes, and in the Bronx.” – Your Friend, Moses
