MUSSINA? ANYONE THINK HE'S DONE?

Postby osb » Sat May 08, 2004 3:37 pm

in one of my leagues, i've offered up valverde and kolb for mussina... the guy is in desperate need of RP and it sounds like he's going to accept it... does he know something i don't?

I don't think he's done, but I think he has started his downward descent. I might hold back on that deal.

Mussina has been ugly and he has lost velocity. Im not so sure he will bounce back. Id still do that trade just for the hope he does though.

no he doesen't thats a great trade, giving up 2 middle o the pack closers for a good starter who should get it turned around.

the key word there is should. Its not for sure though, and its entirely possible he keeps this up the whole year.

those were my thoughts... i drafted kolb, but i got him in the 22nd round and i just picked up valverde off the WW... i like kolb, but who knows how long valverde is going to be the closer... heck even if he stays the whole year i still think this is a good trade... looper, betancourt, and chacon are still on our WW and this guy has nathan, borowski and rhodes, so chances are he's going to drop one of those guys...

Well, there are a lot of "shoulds" to figure out. Mussina should turn it around. Aubrey Huff should turn it around, Mike Young should cool down. Some of these things are going to happen. Just, we don't know which one(s)

other than the starts against TB, mussina has lost to boston and the white sox... those two teams aren't exactly pushovers... and in those games he gave up 3 and 4 runs, not exactly getting waxed... since the yanks have been hitting the ball, he's won two... no he's not the pitcher he once was, but he's on the yankees and he doesn't have to be perfect to pick up wins with that offense...

this is a h2h league btw and the rest of my staff is
