Any projections for this year? Is he gonna be allright again, or is he doomed to fantasy irrelevance for the rest of his career?

Sporting news has him down for the following:

W: 12
L: 9
IP: 171
K: 139
era: 4.52
WHIP: 1.40
avg: .286

Hes not worth drafting, IMO.

I've had him the past few years. He's clearly in decline - he's still got control but he's lost stuff on his fastball. I'd stay away from Mussina from now on and try a young gun instead.

Mussina is still definitely worth drafting. I'm thinking about the 15th round would be about right.

His K / 9 ratio hasn't fallen, the problem is more a mental thing than anything else. He can go from ace to awful in a matter of minutes.

Draft him as your 4th starter confident of plenty of Wins and decent K's but hold your breath he keeps his ERA and Whip around acceptable levels.

I would still draft him over guys like Blanton and Garcia.

(IMO) He's worth it for roto but I would take him in H2H. What do you think?

I see him having a good game followed by a couple of subpar outings. His best years are in the sunset

He was drafted in the 15th last night in my H2H points league, and I think that's about right. I don't think I'd draft him in Roto- his ERA and WHIP will be high, and his only upside at this point is the Yankees.
