Return of the Prodigal Son
Round 3 of the Phil Hughes experiment begins in a little over an hour. Should we expect lofty statistics? No. No we should not. I predict a stat line that reads:
5.2 IP, 7H, 4ER, 4 K's.
Flashy? No. But efficient? Yes. Because that is what a 5 starter needs to be - efficient. I'm not asking for a world-beater, I'm just asking for a guy that can keep the fucking floodgates closed for a little over half-a-game. Hopefully I am setting the bar low, to quite low. But taking into account my ability to jinx situations, it could end up being a slaughter.
