Congratulations to the Moose

Those who know me well know that I prefer the pitching aspect of the game of baseball over hitting. That's not to say I don't like watching sluggers jack balls out of the park. It's just that I appreciate the mental prowess a pitcher must have in order to keep his team in the game. The man pictured above is a perfect example of mental prowess. Mike Mussina doesn't blow hitters away with heat. His fastball can't even touch 90 mph anymore. He utilizes changes of speed and pinpoint location to make hitters look foolish. And today at 39 years old, he firmly cemented his status as being a hall of famer by picking up his 20th win of the season and the 270th of his career. Thanks for all the years of service that you provided. You better be back next year!

Not bad for an old man. Too bad it didn't help the Yanks into the playoffs.
