What Will Moose Do Next?

While everyone debates Mussina’s HOF resume (which we’ve done a thousand times and proven conclusive) I thought we’d enter that netherworld that exists for today’s journalism. That’s right, speculation and conjecture passed off as news. Now that Mike Mussina is no longer a professional baseball player, what will he do with his life? – He’ll…

Lasting Impressions – End of the Moose

It’s over. Mike Mussina will never pitch in the Major Leagues again. His retirement still comes as a bit of a surprise to me. I think, looking back, that I was made cynical by most of today’s athletes. What I mean is that, star athletes do not retire when they still have many good years…

Well played, sir

According to CBSsportsline.com, Mussina knew all year he was going to retire and had made up his mind in January of this year. How do we feel about the Moose pulling one over on us? I can’t speak for Ryan, but to me, this once again fits Mussina’s personality perfectly. He didn’t want every start…

“We feel the room swayin’ “

I’m writing this post in response to a comment that a reader made about trusting the writers to get Mussina into the Hall of Fame. This is not a question of “Does Mussina deserve the Hall?” but “Will people vote for him”. They are seperate questions. I think, this year especially, Mussina’s taken a lot…

Moose News Will Come Soon

Andy Pettitte filed for free agency yesterday making him the 169th player to do so.  The deadline to file is Thursday.  You can do the math pretty easily and figure out that Mike Mussina has to make up his mind very soon. If the Yankees aren’t interested in bringing Pettitte back, then I think they…

Moose is Golden

Yesterday, Mike Mussina won his 7th gold glove and his first since 2003. Here’s ESPN’s Rob Neyer’s take on the issue: “In 2003, Mike Mussina won his sixth Gold Glove. He also won 17 games that season. Since then, he hadn’t won more than 15 games in a season or any Gold Gloves. Until 2008,…
