Young Pitching Tougher To Develop Now More Than Ever
Tim Lincecum.  Remember him?  He won two CY Young awards back-to-back in 2008 and 2009 at age 24 and 25.  Now he can barely stay in the Giants' rotation.  Phil Hughes?  Bust at age 28.  Ivan Nova won 16 games in 2011 and hasn't been heard from since.  Ricky Romero was supposed to be the ace of the B…

Ivan Nova Could Be Heading Down Phil Hughes Boulevard
The once promising trio of Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy and Phil Hughes was supposed to be pitching greatness in pinstripes for 10 years.  Except that it never happened.  Ian Kennedy was traded to Arizona, the Yanks messed with Joba so much that he never regained his true set-up stuff and Phil Hugh…
