Mike Mussina vs. Craig Biggio

It’s hall of fame week! On Sunday, the HOF will welcome four new members to its illustrious membership (though our beloved M. Mussina is not among them…this year).

Mussina’s 1987 Scouting Report from High School

I wanted to post this last month to coincide with the date of the report, but got too busy and forgot about it.

…At least that’s what the voting for this year’s AL MVP would have us believe.  Mussina recieved 3 points for MVP, 1 more then he did for Cy Young.  This is because voters can list 10 people for MVP and only 3 for Cy Young. Moose finished 19th in the voting, his best finish ever…

Two fans debate

So this is a debate Illustrious and I had over Mussina’s retirement possibilities. Feel free to chime in with thoughts: Illustrious: I said this on River Ave. Blues (through which I originally found that article): If Moose’s wife is really giving him an ultimatum to retire, then I think she should have to give back…

R.I.P. Perfection

It’s still too raw to talk about. I cannot believe the Patriots lost that game. I wanted to see perfection so bad. I wanted to be able to tell my sons about it some day. Wanted to look at them and tell them that I saw the greatest team that ever played. I wanted to…
