The Magnificent Moose

Mike Mussina in 2006:
3-1, 2.45 ERA (4th in A.L.) in 33 Innings
30 Strikeouts (2nd in A.L.), 6 Walks
Tuesday's Start:
6+ IP, 4 Hits, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K- Win (3-1)
A Devil Rays' take on Mussina:
"Nasty," said catcher Toby Hall. "The guy has got like five pitches and he throws them all for strikes. He's a professional. He knows how to pitch. Nasty."
I was lucky enough to be at the Stadium to see Moose win his 227th career game (although I didn't feel quite so lucky for awhile when the rain was pouring steadily down upon me and I began losing all feeling in my body due to the cold!). He's really been great every single time out this season; interestingly enough, Mussina, according to Elias Sports Bureau, is one of only five pitchers in the 2006 season to post quality starts every time out (minimum four starts), joining Jose Contreras, Greg Maddux, Chris Capuano and Brandon Webb.
Not bad for the old guy. Not bad at all.

Well, since everyone seems so very interested, I'll let you know my thoughts on Keith Hernandez.

He is an idiot. He is a Met. The two often go hand-in-hand. His comments were stupid but typical- I was not surprised by his opinion, but somewhat surprised that the other Mets announcers didn't shut him up to stop the bleeding. Still, I'm sure he wasn't the only one thinking that the woman didn't belong in the dugout but rather in the kitchen- he was the only one foolish enough to say so on national television.

As far as my thoughts on life? I shall ponder the great mystery and get back to you, Anonymous, once I've deciphered the meaning of life.
