Today is Phil Hughes' 23rd birthday. That's right, he is 23.
Many Yankee fans have soured on Hughes' potential, and in their defense it does seem as though he has been around forever. But at the end of the day, Hughes is still two years younger than Tim Lincecum. Christ, he' s only two months older than Braves' prospect (and certified Yankee raper) Tommy Hanson.
After another impressive outing out of the bullpen last night, Phil Hughes took another step toward being a horrifically overvalued Yankee prospect again. Congratulations, and Happy Birthday.
