A series loss to the lowly Rays

After an 8-2 blowout.

Watching Jason Hammel actually made me think of Phil Hughes. Today is what we can expect (and hope) Phil Hughes becomes in time. A 91-94 mph fastball located with great precision, and good command of a curve, slider and changeup. That enabled Hammel to dominate through five innings (despite a high pitch count and five hits) - he shut down the Yanks when they got runners on and struck out seven without a single walk.

Clemens goes tomorrow afternoon in game one of a big series against Seattle, who is currently two games behind us (after losing again today) in the wildcard.
