This is not par for the course and I believe that there is a misconception here at the Cafe because of it. TINSTAAPP! Just my $.02.
I'm not suggesting Hughes won't make it. I own him in Mookie's keeper and plan to ride it out. However, I don't think it's a terrible surprise he's struggling. It's an awfully tough division to pitch in and it's apparent to me that his mental skills are not there yet. He should be in the minors. I think the Mets made a mistake forcing Pelfrey to learn game management and develop his secondary pitches in the pressure cooker. I think the Yankees are making the same mistake.
