What kind of numbers do you all envision for Mussina this season? Good #2-3 guy?

I'm a bit Mussina-shy after having him on my team last year. He started off poorly against everyone and then seemed to pitch well against tough teams and poorly against the weak teams. I'd be looking elsewhere for a number 2 starter - like Wood, Halladay, Beckett, Smoltz, Burnett, Mulder, Harden.

To be fair, though, he did have an injury or two last year and prior to last year he had been very durable. He finished strong in September, so maybe he is ready to bounce back.

I think Moose will be the end of your 2nd tier pitchers, if his your number two, id be slightly worried, if he's your number 3, be happy

He'll get you a lot of wins, an avg era, an avg amount of K's (Id say about the same K's as last yr with a slightly improved ERA and WHIP)

He'll be a solid performer, Im guessing finishing ranked about 18th- 20th among starting pitchers at the end of the yr

Probably a solid 3rd starter. He is getting up there in age, and maybe last year wasn't that much of a fluke :-o

I think Moose has a shot at 18 wins... Though, probably more like 16 or 17. Plus, he is now slotted as The Yanks #3 which is not bad. Although, I think his first three outings are against Boston.

Call me crazy, but I think he is gonna have a big year, however he could have a slow start. 17-18 wins 3.6 era 195 k and a 1.17 whip isn't out of the question. In my book the guy is still an ace.

He started off so badly because of the Yankees trip to Japan right at the end of spring training.

He predicted it would really screw him up...and it did. He's the kind of guy that would rather pitch on 4 days rest than 5 or 6 because he likes to have a set schedule...Going to Japan, then coming back and playing a couple more exhibition games, then getting back into the regular season really threw him off.

Mussina finished up last year very strong. If he is your #3 I think you are in real good shape.
