Rodrigo Lopez?

Can he be a solid starter this season? He's started off real well and had a good year 2 years ago.

Also he destroyed the yanks when he faced them before this year...Would I be crazy to start him tomorrow versus Mussina?

I'd pass. This situation came up last year (Sep?), where he had mowed the Yankees down in Yankees Stadium and faced them a week later in Baltimore. He got shelled in that second outing.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

This guy has been dominant and the Yankees are hitting like trash. Facing Bruce Chen twice sure didn't help him. Start Lopez. I made the mistake of not starting him the first time.

The Bronx bats have been pretty silent so far, so it may be a good play to start him. Long term though, he's he'll even out and get his ERA back up to the 4.00+ medeocrity level.
