Some Love for the Moose

This is not about the Nationals, but it is about baseball. Big League Stew on Yahoo Sports has an interview with Mike Mussina, my second favorite baseball player of all-time. Please enjoy.

Mussina won his 16th game of the season last night, and has that elusive 20-win mark within his reach this season. It's completely irrational to say a player has had less of a career if he hasn't won 20 games in one season, especially in this day and age. It's a completely different game now, and pitchers need to have a lot of things go their way to win 20 games today.

He has 265 wins, a lifetime .637 winning percentage, six gold gloves, five all-star selections and has spent his entire career in the AL East.

Best of luck and health to Moose the rest of the way in. I hope he wins all of his starts -- and the Yankees still not make the playoffs.
