Mussina: Still a Yankee

The 38 year-old gets $22.5 mill for 2 years. I think he'll be on the DL with RJ and the other boys a few times before his 2 years are up.

This seems like a lot, but then again does that really matter when you're dealing with the top tier money teams? Only real concern here is injury, but if he can throw 150+ innings then the Yanks will be in good shape.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Given the market this year, that is a decent deal. The Yankees are certainly not getting screwed. Plus, it is only a 2 year deal, and $11M/year is a lot more palatable if you are not locked in for 5 years.

Borderline HOFer, as a free agent, had an ERA below four in the AL East last year?

This is a VERY good deal for the Yankees.

Compared to this year's market, this is a great deal...

If he hit the open market, most clubs would jump at that deal. Especially considering the likes of Vicente Padilla are supposedly looking for 4/40.

Good to see him back for another couple years until the kids are ready.
