Comeback year for Moose?

Postby TheBayBergaler » Thu Apr 13, 2006 4:57 pm

What do you guys think of Mike Mussina this year? I mean... with that juggernot behind him... he looked good against the Angels.

Possible 15+ Wins if healthy.... But can he hold his era under 4?

Is he owned in a lot of leagues?

I don't think so.. his days already passed imo

he has one good start... now the real question is if he can keep this up.

He'll get 15 wins but his ERA will be 4 +
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Pass on Moose. He will have little value in mixed leagues imo.

The numbers you list are pretty much what he has been doing for several years. In the American league I believe the average ERA last year was 4.76 . So if I can get 15 wins anda 4.00 or a little higher from him that works for me. He will also get 140 K's which helps. There are guys that are picked ahead of him and go for more then he does in auction drafts that don't get those numbers.Hes also in a contract year. Maybe this is the year to own him. I know I do. If he flops oh well. If he has a great year I look good.

Unless this is AL-only, I think that logic is flawed.

I'll third that.

He should have some nice starts though.

I agree with the general consensus here. If you can pitch at at least decently for the Yankees, the wins will come.

Mussina is over the hill. He may hang on to provide those numbers mentioned in this thread, but he's not going to go into the past and deliver classic Mike Mussina lines.
