While his overall numbers are bad, lets not forget that before these last two starts Mussina had a really nice stretch of about 11 or 12 starts. Roughly a 3.80 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. Not great but not terrible.
I think the only way he loses his job is of he gets completely bombed in his next start..... and even then they may give him one more chance. For better or for worse the Yankees will have to deal with Mussina next season so I think he gets every chance to stay in the rotation.
