Today I was setting up a new blog at wordpress and decided I should finally post an update to this site.
Right now there’s not a lot to discuss about Mussina. He’s not in the public realm any more and people aren’t talking about him. This makes it very difficult to motivate ourselves to promote his chances for the Hall.
The site is not going away. However, as you can see I moved it to from its old home, to this temporary wordpress.com site. This was a cost saving move. It simply wasn’t worth paying for server space for a site we don’t update.
We are almost exactly half way (two and half years) to when Mussina will become eligible for the Hall of Fame.
Mussina will be eligible in January 2014. The debate around that year’s class will start after the class of 2013 is announced, sometime in January 2013. It will intensify after the end of the 2013 season.
Hopefully by late 2012 we can start writing more. Other players entering the ballot in 2011, 2012 and 2013 will impact Mussina’s chances. We might drop by with some posts then.
I came across the below post, which was started in October of 2008. Obviously, it was written before Mussina’s retirement. It languished away all this time in the “draft” section of site. I thought I would post it for the sure fun and “what if” aspect of it (and “Samsonite! I was way off!”).
