New York Daily News Yankees beat reporter Mark Feinsand had friend of the site Mark Simon on his June 10th podcast . You can listen to the podcast here. The interview with Simon starts around the 29-minute mark. It’s a really good listen because of all the content about Mike Mussina, including some tidbits about what it was like covering him during his playing days. The conversation about Mussina starts around the 36:45 mark. The two spend a good amount of time discussing Mussina’s hall of fame chances and Simon briefly mentions this site.
The two reporters (who have known each other since grade school) spend time discussing Mussina’s Hall of Fame chances and some of the near-misses in Mussina’s career. They cover the Armando Benitez game in 1996, the 1997 playoffs, the Derek Jeter flip game, the 2001 World Series, and of course, his 2001 near perfect game. At one point Feinsand makes clear he will vote for Mussina next year.
Remember to buy Mark Simon’s book The Yankee Index: Every Number Tells a Story in which our site gets a mention in the Mike Mussina chapter.
