Phil Hughes and Ruben Tejada - and there's a live chat today
I have some early, long travel this morning, and then we'll catch up at 3:00 for the live chat. So, very briefly:
--Here's my column on Phil Hughes, from whom the Yankees want a big improvement from last year.
--Hank Steinbrenner, who is not at all involved with the running of the Yankees, spoke about the team.
--Terry Collins complained that Ruben Tejada is not yet in camp, even though he isn't required to arrive until Sunday or participate until Monday. I appreciate where Collins is coming from - the comment speaks to his intensity - and maybe this plays well with Mets die-hards. But I think it sounds silly. As David Wright said in David Lennon's story, there are reporting dates for a reason.
See you at 3.
