    Truly a great season for McHugh. His stuff backs up the numbers. Awesome find by Luhnow & Co.

    boooooo. I was hoping he'd get his 7 1/3 more innings to qualify for the ERA leaderboard.

    What a great find and a great year. Here's to hoping he comes back next year and doesn't miss a beat

    Was skeptical about his initial success (as many were)... very glad he panned out. Excellent addition and I hope he builds on his success next year.

    I am curious, when did you stop being skeptical? I was for a majority of the season but that stretch in early August (4 games of 1ER baseball for at least 6 innings) really won me over after a few "shakier" starts by his standards (but great for Peacock standards).
