Hughes and Chamberlain head to head on video

Sweeny Murti of WFAN has posted a video of Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes in their first bullpen session of spring training. I can’t even imagine how competitive this is going to get.

My favorite part of the video, by far, is hearing the pop of the catchers’ mitts. But don’t be fooled. How loud the sound is doesn’t necessarily determine who is throwing harder. The pop is usually measured by how the new glove is. I learned this through personal experience.

As usual, check out Chad Jennings’ post on the two pitchers’ first impressions on the rotation competition.
