Okay, raise your hand if you thought Freddy Garcia would pitch as well as he did yesterday. No, I can't tell if you're raising your hand, but I don't have to. I know you're not.

Garcia turned in a great performance, pitching six scoreless innings, giving up only a walk and two hits. This with his velocity in the mid-to-high 80s. He located all his pitches and changed speeds, which meant he didn't have to throw 95 MPH. Phil Hughes, were you paying attention?

Speaking of Hughes, he starts a throwing program today, designed (hopefully) to strengthen his arm and increase his velocity. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild said, “We’re going to try to tire it out a little bit, tire it out and rest it. We’ll go that way and see what we get.” [Bombers Beat]. Sounds like Rothschild is experimenting here. We shall see how his guinea pig does.

Reminder: Don't forget to vote in the poll on the left sidebar of the blog. Let me know when you think Jeter will reach 3,000 hits!
