Quick hits

- Phil Hughes pitched a solid last game before the season starts Monday: 5 ip, 3 h, 1 er, 1 bb, 4 k. Only wish it was on TV.

- Scott Patterson is (rightfully) upset he didn't earn a spot on the 25-man roster. Rest assured though, he'll be the first reliever called up when the inevitable injury/ineptitude strikes. In some ways, the move is better for Patterson in the long run. It's better he gets regular work in Scranton than occasional work in the crowded Bronx bullpen. Instead of an Edwar-esque two week layoff, he'll be working continually in Triple-A (albeit against lesser hitters), which will give him a better shot of succeeding and staying with the big league team long term.
