Of course. But even if he makes only 20 starts, this is an excellent move.

Didn't realize the Yankees were so hard up for starting pitching after all the moves they made.

I would say it's a good move but the only bad thing for the Yankees is Phil Hughes will probaly get screwed over. Kinda like what happened to Ian Kennedy. I would think Hughes would get out of there as soon as he could if that happens.

Best of luck to him, except against our Sox. Never minded him as a player, and it shows how much he misses the game. Also shows how much the Yankees need pitching help.
