Do you know how many games Mike Mussina has won for the Yankees since June 26, 2006?
Or, to state it another way, “Five more than Carl Pavano.”
In the second-half of the season last year, opponents batted .268 against Mussina. For the year, the league batting average was .275.
This season, Mussina was injured during his second start of the year.
Many Yankees fans feel that the return of Mike Mussina (from the D.L.) will help the Yankees current issue with respect to their lack of starting pitching depth. But, when you look at what Mussina did over the second-half of last year, and this season to date, is that a correct assumption?
