Question Of The Week: What Does The Future Hold For Phil Hughes?

On Sunday, New York Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes tossed a complete-game gem against the Detroit Tigers, which followed his five-plus inning, seven-run debacle in Anaheim. His season is a Jekyll and Hyde roller-coaster ride: He's 1-4 with a 7.48 ERA in his first five starts and 4-1 with a 3.60 ERA in his last six. Do we know who the real Phil Hughes is? Is he a future front-of-the-rotation starter, a serviceable back-of-the-rotation guy or will he ultimately find his place in the bullpen? What do you think?
