BtB Game Thread: Yankees @ Tigers -- May 12, 2010

The game's on ESPN, so unless you're like me and only have MLB.tv (without cable), nearly everyone should be able to watch this game.

Don't forget, we've got the BtB Daily Twitter widget working down below.  Anything you tweet with the hashtag #btbdaily will show up there (not re-tweets, however.)  Use it for sharing links from around the web that we'd all be interested in checking out.  Or use it to make Satchel robot jokes.  Hopefully more of the former.

The Yankees, who have already lost 2-0 today, send Phil Hughes to the mound, who is finally living up to expectations with a 2.77 FIP so far in 2010 (3.86 xFIP) and a ZiPS rest-of-season projected 3.60 FIP.

Detroit's Jeremy Bonderman has been nearly as good, with a 3.50 FIP (4.01 xFIP), even though his ERA is an ugly 5.74.  Part of the explanation is a .333 BABIP, although he's been known as one of those guys who can't seem to post a league-average BABIP.

Game on.
