    Angry What!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now Phil Hughes has a "severely" sprained ankle that will push him back ANOTHER 4 to 6 weeks

    Now instead of early June, his return date is pushed back to late July or early August

    This team is #$@%&!# SNAKEBIT
    The Yankees might be adding Roger Clemens to their rotation on Monday, but don't look for Phil Hughes to rejoin them anytime soon.

    Hughes, who has been in Tampa rehabbing a strained left hamstring for most of May, suffered a Grade 3 sprain - the most severe grade - of his left ankle while doing agility drills on Friday.

    Hughes underwent an MRI on his ankle yesterday, and the test revealed the severity of the injury, which will keep him from getting on a mound for 4-6 weeks. The setback will likely push his return to the end of July or the beginning of August.

    "It's frustrating," said Hughes in an e-mail. "But it's in the past. I'm just focusing on getting back as soon as I can. That's pretty much all I can do."

    Hughes added that his hamstring is "completely fine," but the Yankees want him to stay off his ankle for the immediate future. "It just seems like nobody can catch a break right now," he said.

    Yeah, saw that last night. It certainly puts a hold to my dream rotation of Wang, Pettitte, Clemens, Moose, Hughes (with Hughes probably being the best of the bunch even though he's the #5 starter).

    The questoin now is who holds the spot over for Hughes for the next 2 months. (After he can throw again, I expect it to take at least 3 weeks for him to be ready to come back to the majors). I would say Clippard, but he didn't look good yesterday. Hopefully he improves. Igawa is a possibility I guess. We will see.

    Clippard is going down when Clemens comes up. DeSalvo is the guy for now.

    Here's the part that really kills me
    Hughes added that his hamstring is "completely fine"
    In other words, he'd be called up with Clemens just as I predicted if not for this absolute fluke that pushes him back ANOTHER 4 to 6 weeks

    I think you will see a combination of Clippard and DeSalvo for the time being and maybe one of them will eventually emerge as the 5th guy.

    Clippard is better than DeSalvo, who stinks. Saying that, Clippard is going to have to do better than last night. He was lucky to only give up 3 runs in 5 innings.

    No, I have never seen so many starting rotation injuries in the first 2 months of the season. Losing Hughes sucks. I just hope come August, he hasn't had another setback and is ready to go.

    Unbelievable! You're right Ham, if it wasn't for bad luck the Yanks wouldn't have any luck at all.

    It's like one fluke disaster after another.

    Clippard scares me. Well, his windup does. How can a guy pitch consistently with that kind of slingshot motion? I predict he'll have lots of wild streaks and will give up a ton of homers. Maybe even hurt his arm with that thing.

    What's the word on Karstens? Done for the year?

    any team that looks to rookies to carry them to a WS title is going to be dissapointed.

    Uh, we're just looking for a 5th starter here, bit.

    besides, are you telling me no team has ever won it all with a rookie in the rotation?

    Listen, Wang, Mussina, Pettite are all healthy and Clemens will be back soon. Stop b*tching, itís put up or shut up time.

    Correct. You never hear Mets fans play the injury card.

    I hear that, and I'm a yankees fan.

    Hughes is a good one, but we shouldnt be counting on a 20 yr old kid to bail us out, esp with Clemens on the way.

    No one's playing the injury card, or blaming the Yankees record on injuries. It's just another bad luck injury that has hit this team this season.

    This is very disappointing news, but we can't rely on Hughes to save this team

    Anybody else beginning to wonder if this is going to become a track record like Mark Prior and Kerry Wood who cannot stay healthy?

    Start preparing the 'Fragile Phil' nicknames.

    As a Mets fan, the Yanks have work to do but if they play the way they are supposed to be playing, they have a legit shot at the wildcard. Even the division is a possibility, although itís remote.
