The Yankee beat: Historically bad ERA’s, Hughes, and Humber

The Yankees didn’t get a great start out of Ivan Nova, but they managed to put seven runs together against Justin Verlander and co. and pulled out a close 7-6 win. Here is our recap.

Here is what the Yankees blogosphere was talking about today.

  • River Ave Blues points out that the Yankees are in danger of having the worst monthly starters’ ERA in a decade. Friday night’s 5.1 IP, 6 ER start by Ivan Nova isn’t going to help.
  • The Yankee Analysts thinks that Phil Hughes is too predictable with two strikes. I would say that’s only one thing that Hughes does wrong.
  • The Captain’s Blog writes about Phil Humber, who joined the list of pitchers who struggled in the start after pitching a perfect game. Can’t be worse than David Cone, whose career took a sharp turn downward after he threw a perfect game.
