Phil Hughes To Pitch Game 3 Against Verlander

In my post not published just an hour ago I showed how and why I thought it would be a better idea to start Hiroki Kuroda on three days rest for Game 2 (check) and how we should bring CC Sabathia back on three days rest to pitch Game 3 (X) against Justin Verlander and line him up for a Game 7 start on semi normal rest. One out of two is not bad I guess, especially in baseball, but I think this decision will be the one that makes or breaks the Yankees. Joe Girardi announced that Phil Hughes will start Game 3 in Comerica against Verlander and we will save CC for Game 4 on regular rest, still lining him up for a Game 7 start but on three days rest. Not the way I would have done it and not exactly the way Joe Girardi would have done it circa 2009 but what is done is done. I just hope it does not come back to bite us.
