Yankees Sign Mike Mussina to Two-Year Deal
By mvyb, 15.11.2006, 11:19

As was expected, the Yankees re-signed veteran pitcher, Mike Mussina, to a two-year, $22.5 million contract extension.

Mike Mussina and the New York Yankees have agreed to a two-year, $22.5 million contract extension, the New York Post reported, citing unnamed industry sources.

Mussina, 38, was 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA for the Yankees last season. The team had until Wednesday to exercise a $17 million option, which carried a $1.5 million buyout, or renegotiate with the right-hander.

Even though Mussina had a great 2006 season ( 15-7, 3.51 ERA, 35 BB, 172 K ), I hope the Yankees aren't planning on having him as their #1 starter. No disrespect, but his stuff just isn't dominating enough to be the ace of a contending team.
This is what the Yankee rotation looks like so far:
1. ?
2. Chien-Ming Wang
4. Mike Mussina
5. Carl Pavano/ Randy Johnson
I desperately want two more starting pitchers, although that probably won't happen. The Yankee front office will try to milk another year out of Johnson, while praying that Pavano stays healthy.
Oh, in case you didn't know (which would mean you weren't following baseball at all and probably have no interest in this blog), the Red Sox won the rights to negotiate with Daisuke Matsuzaka. Their winning bid- $51.1 million bucks!

I like the resigning of Mussina, but way too much money. As Zach pointed out, the Moose is a 3 or 4 starter. Would you pay your number 4 starter 22 million? Imagine Carlos Silva of the Twins getting 11 million a year...

Mussina always looks good - sometimes he even pitches good!

Hey Zach. And this is a great move by the Yanks. At 38, a 2 year deal is the perfect length...and Moose still has 2 great years at least ahead of him. He's been a rock, and you should be happy....you have a great blog!
