Spring Training Notes: 3/6/12

Phil Hughes warming up before his outing

Good evening everyone! If you were fortunate enough to listen to the Pirates broadcast then you were able to listen to Phil Hughes & CC Sabathia’s outings. Here are some notes from today:

— Phil Hughes’s location wasn’t there (it’s okay, it was only the first game), but there was something that was there: His velocity. Hughes joked to Jack Curry saying that he would like to hit 100 MPH but then seriously said that he wouldn’t mind hitting 91-92 on the gun. Hughes was surprised when Jack Curry told him that he topped at 93 MPH multiple times. Francisco Cervelli even commented saying that the ball was jumping out of Phil Hughes’s hand.

— CC Sabathia also has some goals himself this spring. Sabathia said that he would like to have consistency with delivery and ability to throw off speed pitches for strikes are his goal for the Spring. On his first start, Sabathia also said that it felt ike it was the first time and that there is still a lot of work to do.

— Derek Jeter insists that he would like to also play tomorrow. Everyone’s guess is that Jeter doesn’t want to travel on Thursday. So are we playing ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ with Brett Gardner for the lead-off spot tomorrow? If so, you’ll need a referee.

Tomorrow the game is on YES Network (some advice: don’t ever take Yankees announcers for granted) and on MLB Network. Use the comment section below to talk about whatever you like

Have a great night everyone!
