    At this moment, both Chien-Ming Wang and Mike Mussina have winning percentages of at least .750 for the season.

    When was the last time that the Yankees had two true starting pitchers go the whole season and end up with winning percentages of at least .750 for the season?

    It was the magical year of 1998 when David Wells went 18-4 and El Duque Hernandez went 12-4. But, Hernandez only made 21 starts that season.

    The last time that two Yankees starters went the full season and had winning percentages of at least .750 was 1963 – when Whitey Ford went 24-7 and Jim Bouton went 21-7.

    If Wang and Mussina can keep up their pace, we might see something in New York that we haven’t seen in 43 years.
