Pharewell, Phil Phranchise


 In what seems like the phar phlung past, he was going to be our phuture. 
Instead, our hopes phaded. 
A phine pitcher, but not the phenom we wanted. Still, a phavorite for old times' sake.

Enjoy retirement, Phil. Time to get in some phishin'.

Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy.

All had flashes of brilliance. All went south fast. We let Hughes and Joba walk off the team without getting a blessed thing return. Kennedy—along with Phil Coke and Austin Jackson—at least got us Granderson, which was something.

But all in all, the three of them were Cashman in a nutshell. No development, no value in return.

Don't forget Ed Yarnell, the key piece in the Mike Lowell trade

Hughes way overrated. They should have kept him as a reliever. Gave up way to many HR. He tried to blame it on being a RH pitcher at Yankee Stadium, but after one good season in Minnesota, the gopher ball became his nemesis again.

I seem to recall that he got hurt while on his way pitching what could have been a no-hitter and was never the same.

Hoss,

Yes , Hughes, Kennedy, and Joba. So we were set with pitching!

Then the Killer B's Bentances, Brackman, and Banuelos. So we were set with pitching

Now, Schmidt, Garcia, Montgomery. So we are set with... never mind.
