Roch Kubatko recently spoke to Hall of Famer Jim Palmer, who recently spoke to Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina. When Palmer asked Mussina if he’d play in 2009, Mussina replied, "I don’t think so."
Everything I’ve read says Mussina doesn’t care about 300 wins. With 31 more to go, the plateau may require three more seasons. Regardless, it’d be a shame to see Moose retire when he’s clearly not finished as a pitcher. It’d also throw a wrench in the Yankees’ plans, as they’d probably like to bring him back on a one-year deal at $12-14MM.
