In baseball, there are real-deals, wannabes, and has-beens. But some players fall into a different category, the what-could-have-beens. After nearly a year on the disabled list, Phil Hughes makes his return to a major league mound today. One can't help but wonder what his career would have been like had he not been plagued with injuries. When healthy, he's been very, very good, but his career feels like one long series of rude interruptions. 2014 was without a doubt his best year; he won 16 games with a 3.52 ERA and a thoroughly ridiculous 11.67 K/BB ratio while garnering seven Cy Young award votes. I'm too old and jaded to expect Hughes to return to his 2014 form, I don't think anyone does. But if he can stay healthy and throw 160 innings or so he can still be a significant rotation asset for this team. Tampa sends right-hander Yonny Chirinos to the hill, he's got an ERA of 2.70 and 15 strikeouts, but he got touched for five runs in his last outing after pitching 14.1 scoreless frames over his first three starts. Play ball!
I mean, come on, what else could I play?*
*This question also applies to my choices on YT after I decided this play this.
Happy Prince Day, everyone.
30 Mar 1985
It's a sad day for Minnesota, and music in general. Prince indelibly changed the face of not only music, but fashion, culture, and even perception itself. Here, Prince holds court over First Ave, debuting what may be his most famous song right here for your viewing pleasure (at least as long as the lawyers allow it).
Here's a blast from the past (which is probably where it should have been left).
I'm pretty sure you guys will be able to say it all for me.
