Poll: Who should get sent down?

The Yankees' record is 2-9 when either Phil Hughes or Ian Kennedy take the ball.

Hughes is 0-4 with a 9.00 ERA on the season. He has walked 13 and struck out 13 in 22 innings. He is averaging 3 2-3 innings per start.

Kennedy is 0-2 with an 8.53 ERA on the season. He has walked 17 and struck out 15 in 19 innings.

As is, the Yankees can't contend with these two in the rotation. Their short starts are extremely taxing on the bullpen, and the reason why the Yankees have been so up and down on the season rests with these two young starters. Something needs to be done before both are crushed mentally.

So I ask you, who should get sent down to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre? Hughes? Kennedy? Both? Neither? Discuss your choice in the comments section.

Hughes. he needs to work on his mechanics, and that might be a good place for him to do it.
