Phil Hughes is the Ace of Yankees?

He knows the game so well. Good movement of fastball. Nice curves. 23 years young. Before he hurts himself either shoulder or elbow he should sign big contract

    He probably will never be the ace as they have Sabathia locked up. He can likely move his way in front of Burnett as the number two starter in a year or so as Burnett is not consistent enough to stay as their number two starter, but Hughes is not there yet. He has to prove himself not just for the first month and a half and not even the first year. You need to se how he bounces back after a couple seasons. But I do see him being our future number two or three starter in a couple years when Pettitte is gone. Like I said, Burnett is not consistent enough to be a number two. The only reason he is their number two is because they don't want Sabathia and Pettitte to go back to back as they are both lefties. So, barring a huge signing or trade, he is our future number two or three in a couple years. He won't have a 1.39 ERA all year.

    Phil Hughes is the FUTURE ace of the staff at the end of the season CC's numbers in every way will be better then Hughes' though he has gotten off to an absolutely unbelievable start he's young and will slow down but within the next five years he will be carrying that rotation as there number 2 starter still behind CC

    He has been great. The time in bullpen with Mariano Rivera really helped him Develop into a very strong pitcher. He is showing the stuff he showed when he was a top prospect in the minors a few years ago. And now he even has the numbers to back it up. 5 and 0 with a 1.39 era. Leading the league in both categories. He has even picked up his strike out numbers. What a great pitcher the yankees have. Since he so young to he is looking at a very long productive carrer for the yankees. Even if he does get hurt in a couple of them.

    No. CC is the ace. But Hughes is the future ace.

    No he is not. Mariano Rivera is the ACE of the Yankees.

    WTF? He needs more service before you label him an ace. Not too long ago Yankees fans were trashing the guy.
