Mike Mussina went tonight for the Yankees and I have to say I was really impressed by him. He is playing for a contract for next season as there is little to no chance that the Yankees are going to pick up his $17m option for the 2007 season.

He was spotting his fastball impressively as well as painting the corners with his curve. Phil Garner commented that he 'looked in mid-season form' and was clearly impressed with the projected #2 starter on the Yankees.

The club will only go as far as their starters will take them so it was good to see Moose perform well tonight. When you couple that with a nice start from Randy last night until he got tired then it is certainly encouraging for Ron Guidry and his pitching staff. With Chacon looking good so far this spring and Wang playing himself into the rotation, it leaves the injured Pavano and the rubbish Wright vying for that final spot in the rotation. I just hope that Pavano gets healthy quick sharpish as any love I had for Wright is receding at a rate of knots.
