Hughes Has No Problems Being Skipped

As you probably know, the Yankees are skipping Phil Hughes' start tonight against the Dbacks as part of their plan to keep his innings down. Some fans have complained about it, comparing it to the Joba rules last year, but I don't see it as a big deal at all. Apparently, neither does Hughes:
“It’s not like I came out of the gates and I was struggling and this is going to be a setback for me,” he said. “I don’t really view having a couple of extra days off as being a setback. I don’t believe that. I think I’m going to take the approach of taking advantage of the extra rest and hopefully be strong in my next start.”
That's the best attitude he can have at this point. So not only has Hughes shown a ton of maturity on the mound, but now he's showing it off the mound too.
