Shocker! Yank Beat Writers Hacks Write About Baseball

And they are all drooling over young Master Hughes...
HUGHES DA MAN By GEORGE KING - New York Post:
The Yankees can't play the media card ever again concerning Philip Hughes. No longer is he a product of the hype machine. As of yesterday, every story concerning the right-hander will start with glowing observations from Jason Giambi and Todd Pratt.

The kid faced RhoidBoy, Matsui, Todd Pratt and Raul Chavez in a 34 pitch BP session. Only two balls were hit into fair territory.

Harper in the Daily News, on the reaction from people watching the kid's first session:
Even an old hand such as third base coach Larry Bowa sounded like a crazed fan after watching Hughes snap off a sharp-breaking curveball that froze Todd Pratt at the plate.

"Did you see that hook?" Bowa screamed as he came jogging past a couple of reporters near the Yankee dugout. "That was nasty."

Newsday's hack featured this from the Giambalco: "he's just got filthy stuff," who went on to liken Master Philip to "a young Rocket" who should have been called up last year.

So even though everyone with the Yanks' braintrust is adamant that Hughes will not be coming north when the Yanks break camp (a decision Jorge Posada seems to think should be an absolute no-brainer; that the kid is ready to rumble with the big boys right now), how long will it take the beat writers to start banging their pots and pans and demand that Philip breaks camp and heads for the Bronx instead of AAA ball?

I'd say the howling will begin after the first exhibition game that Igawa or Punkass Pavone get whacked around.

I saw him a couple times at Trenton (actually, he was the reason we went to "God's Little Jersey Hellhole"), and it was retarded how much he outclassed everyone he faced, but you're right, this "young rocket" shit is just dumb. Any kid who's big with a good looking fastball that shows up gets that tag planted on his shoulders, and most never get close to coming close to living up to that kind of albatross.

But Christo-baby-jeebus!, he looked like he was almost bored while he was just blowing guys away.
