Was Mike Mussina better than Derek Jeter?

If you are a baseball fan, you’ve probably seen Keith Olbermann’s tangent against Derek Jeter. Olbermann delivered an opinion piece on his ESPN2 show last week and it has gone viral in a big way.

Yankees Look Back at Mussina’s 2008 season

The Yankees and MLB produce a web series known as “Standout Seasons.” A few days ago they chronicled Mussina’s 2008 campaign.

Where do we go from here?

Today is September 29th. The Yankees’ season is over. And, if these whispered comments mean anything, Mike Mussina’s career may be as well. The Moose is contemplating retirement, and frankly, I don’t blame him.
