Mussina... Sleeper or Bust?

Postby Niffoc4 » Wed Dec 08, 2004 6:36 pm

I keep hearing people say that Mussina is going to bounce back next year, but I keep thinking he is in his late thirties and few pitchers excel when they reach that age, so what do you guys think?

I think he'll have a very good year. Last year was somewhat of a fluke IMO. He was injured for a little while and the team was constantly up and down. He'll be back up around 17 or 18 wins with an ERA around 3.30-3.50.

I'd say 16-17W and a 3.58 ERA for next year.

If the end of Moose's regular season and the 04 post season are any indication, he's MONEY. ;-D In fact, I'm not so sure he's that much of a sleeper. Most competetive leagues will see him snatched up fairly early, I'd imagine.

I'll say this much. Yanks fans better HOPE he comes up huge next season, seeing as most of the starters they're targeting seem to be signing with other clubs.

considering the way he pitched the last month of the season and the playoffs, i consider him to be a ok for next year,,,and with that offense behind him he should be good for at least 17 wins if he is healthy all year....... i dont really consider him a sleeper at all.....

People are not stupid. They will take the solid Mussina over a average or non-proven player anyday. I can see Mussina going higher than Prior in some drafts
