Just to bring everyone up to speed, earlier in the week I wrote about the Yankees calling up Philip Hughes. I wasn’t promoting that idea, just curious why no beat writer or columnist explored the scenario, or detailed the Yankees reasoning. Well Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record has written the column. Thank you.
It’s a good column. He compares the Mets handling of Mike Pelfrey and the Yankees handling of Philip Hughes. Klapisch is one of my favorite baseball columnists. The Washington Post’s Thomas Boswell is great too.
