Phil looks better then he did last year atleast. He is lacking a put away pitch so it seems. I didnt get to watch todays game, Fox out here in NM had the Rangers game. But from what I heard from the radio, i really like this MLB.tv subscription, Phil was good but not really econimcal with his pitches. He still needs to work on things but he has improved from last year, thats for sure!
I believe Hughes has the "stuff" but he doesn't know how to hide it as his various "grips/body langauge " are decipherable . Hitters seem to know what kind of balls are coming out of his hand. The can delineate his various pitches to lay off of the ones darting out of the strike zone thus increasing his pitch count at a rapid pace. When successful pitchers like Johan Santana throws a ball...... from his hand you cannot tell if it a fast ball, change up or anything else.
