    Would you rather have heard this kind of blather from Teixeira?
    Neither ARod or Teix have any information on this suspension. I doubt either of them are spending any time with Cano.
    So neither are equipped to speak to this issue. To speculate that you have suspicions that he may have been using back in the day is not breaking any news. It seems ARod spoke to the tough road that Cano will be up against, which is something that ARod can speak to with experience.

    Except he didn't say he knew Cano used. He said he wasn't surprised to hear the news when it broke. If you're going to accuse someone before the fact without proof you're putting yourself in Jack Clark/Albert Pujols territory.

    I think you're not entirely clear on the difference between "analyst" (or "pundit") and "investigative reporter."

    It's entirely possible that my blind disdain for Teix is driving my reactions here.

    Minnesota remains responsible for that AAV unless some sucker takes on the money, which they won't.

    The Twins are a stupid organization. They signed Hughes back in 2014 on the cheap for $8 million a year over 3 years. In one season Hughes outplayed his contract. Instead of high-fiving themselves for making such a smart gamble they ripped up the contract and handed him a new backloaded 5 year $58 million deal. Then Hughes returned to his normal inconsistent self. Had they not ripped up the contract and Hughes was up for a new deal after 2016 he would not have seen the $13 million he is making now.

    I called out the Twins for this stupidity and was right.

    Phil Hughes....one of the nicest, down to earth players in the game with zero attitude. Unfortunately, he was such a disappointment on the mound for various reasons. I wish him and his family well.

    I would pick up Hughes and stick him in the bullpen just like the 2009 season dude was electric that year
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Still remember Hughes' second career start against Texas. He was a sure thing.

    He already *was* in the Twins bullpen with that 6.75 ERA.

    Yep, I said the same thing at the time.

    Trivia: The hamstring injury that started Phil's troubles came while pitching to .... Mark Teixeira, the previous thread topic.

    Until the hamstring popped.

    Still remember people saying he was a two-pitch pitcher and then he rattled off consecutive, dirty changeups that made an in-his-prime Teixeira look silly.

    Hughes holds the record for highest strikeout-to-walk ratio in a season with 11.625, which he did in 2014. His 0.6868 walks per innings that year are the 37th fewest all-time, and the only lower amount after 1920 was 0.4301 by Carlos Silva in 2005. Hughes and Silva did it for Minnesota.

    You’re not alone in your disdain for Tex and his willingness to throw former teammmates and managers under the bus. Apparently, CC feels the same way based on his comments today:
