I didn't even want to address this "news" because I don't feel like it's a big deal but since everyone else has said something about it, I might as well too, right?. So here it goes... Earlier today, Joe Girardi just happened to mentioned that it's possible Phil Hughes, who is recovering from a bulging disk in his back, could miss the start of the season.
You know what else is possible? It's possible that Hughes may not miss the start of the season. It's also possible that I could win the lottery.
I feel like everyone is overreacting to every bit of news or every quote to come out of someone's mouth. I get that it's Spring Training and we're all bored and that people are looking for stories but I listened to Girardi on Mike Francesa's show earlier this afternoon and he said Hughes has been pain free.
How did we go from someone being pain-free which seems like good news to me to someone possibly not being ready for Opening Day?
So, is it possible Phil Hughes misses the beginning of the season? Sure but it's also possible he doesn't.
