Yankees drop rubber game to Padres, 6-3

Well, if it wasn't already official, it is now. Phil Hughes is terrible. I literally turned this game on for just one inning and in that inning I saw him give up three runs with two of them coming after he had a hitter down 0-2. His struggles are becoming too much to handle. It's time for him to turn things around. 

Overall on the day, Hughes gave up 5 earned runs in just 2.2 innings. In other words, not Yankee-material. This may sound crazy, but can we just bench/cut Hughes and then give anybody (Claiborne, Joba, maybe even Pineda) a chance? One of those three has to be better than this former number 1 prospect. 

On the bright side of this dark afternoon, the Yankees did score the last three runs of this game to cut San Diego's lead in half. Those three runs came on a couple of RBI Singles from Curtis Granderson and Lyle Overbay and a solo home run from Austin Romine, his first career long ball. So, congratulations to Austin on that. Good night.
