Ivan Nova vs. Phil Hughes
(Who is going to have a better 2012?)
Yu Darvish may be a Ranger, leaving the Edwin Jacksons and Roy Oswalts of the world on the free agent market. You know, as well as I do, that the Yanks aren't going after those guys. Hiroki Kuroda is out there, but the Yank officials have said they are not in on him. Since they like Kuroda, it doesn't seem impossible that couldn't change, but I've been told twice (including this week) the Yankees have no plans to go after him now. Plus, still no one knows if Kuroda would come to NewYork.
So with it looking increasingly like it will be CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova, Freddy Garcia, Phil Hughes and A.J. Burnett as the Yankees' rotation, we have a question for you. Whom do you think will have a better season in 2012: Hughes or Nova?
We will chime in later with who we think. It definitely is a close call.
