It is long overdue to ask ourselves objectively - why?
Why did the Yankees re-sign Mike Mussina?
As I have said it time and time again since last October - no way should he be brought back.
Once upon a time he was a good pitcher - that time has passed.
After tonight's gem, he is now 4 - 7 on the season with ERA at 5. Further, he put the Yanks in a position for another prolonged losing streak.
Regardless of who is catching, Mussina is done and his numbers prove it. Anyone who was willing to assess the situation at the conclusion of last season in an objective fashion knew it.
Mike Mussina is the Yankee momentum killer.
I can only hope that when Karstens and Hughes comes up, that they make room for two starters and look to make Mussina a long middle reliever. - wishful thinking that will never happen, but those in the know can only hope.
Moose has to go.
