He's no savior, but he's a solid pitcher. Check out his second half stats, and that might make you feel better:
3.85 ERA, 11-3
I just think this decreases the desperation level for the Yanks. I think they can go with what they have if they need to: Pettite, Wang, Mussina, Hughes, Chamberlain, Kennedy (one of them moving to the pen and ready to step up when someone goes down) with their offense, and they have a solid chance at the playoffs for sure.
No ace yet in that mix, but two pitchers with potential to become aces, two grizzled veterans (let's hope Mussina finds some life in that arm again), and the reliable Wang. Please oh please don't give up Hughes!!!!!!
Check out this scouting report on Hughes from last year, BTW:http://firetorre.blogspot.com/2006/11/p ... hes-1.html
