1. It’s still early, but I think now is the time you start to get a little concerned if you’re team is really tanking. Buster Olney today has a piece about the Mariners possibly being early sellers and of course speculates on if Felix Hernandez could be traded. A trade for Felix would [...]
I have a confession to make. During his eight-year tenure with the New York Yankees, for no apparent reason I never really warmed up to Mike Mussina. It’s not that I outwardly disliked Moose, but at no point in my Yankee fandom do I ever recall absolutely and [...]
Nary a day goes by in the baseball world does a day pass without two people discussing which of their favorite players was better than the other. Our daily baseball ritual includes this process, especially now during the Hot Stove season. We start with a gut reaction, a quick thought that we post on a [...]

This one should be fairly simple, right? As with my Blyleven post , I’m sure I’ll be preaching to the choir, but Mike Mussina should be in the Hall of Fame when his time comes. But, of course, there will be doubters out there. So, I will preemptively make the case for the [...]
On Sunday I ran a post praising CC Sabathia because, you know, he’s awesome. The post required me to research Yankee pitching staffs of prior seasons. I was looking for the last season a Yankee pitcher was as dominant as CC was in 2009. I didn’t have to go all that far back. [...]
Both players rank in the top 30. Mussina ranks 24th and Glavine ranks 29th. What I did to further compare them was order [...]
