I’m not sure to make of it – because the O’s are playing terrible baseball these days – but, on a night where the Yankees needed a win (heck, they need wins everyday these days), Mussina was awesome this evening.
Then again, we’ve seen Mike pitch like this before and then not do well afterwards.
The next start should be very telling for Moose.
The team was rolling today. Mientkiewicz, you name it, they all were banging the ball. If this keeps up, Torre is going to have a tough call on who to sit between Mientkiewicz, Giambi, Melky, Damon and Matsui. One of them has to ride the pine for the other four to play. Like trying to determine if Moose is really back, that’s a hard one to figure out the right answer…as they all offer different things.
And, that game in Toronto tonight? Don’t worry…I’ll have something posted on that soon.
