Thursday, November 20th — Mike Mussina

November 21, 2008

Today I Learned…

…that former Orioles pitcher Mike Mussina (I refuse to acknowledge his most recent team) has announced his retirement after 18 seasons in the majors.  At the time of his retirement, his 270 wins ranked him second among active right-handers, behind only Greg Maddux.

I always really liked Mussina, despite his traitorous nature.  I find it remarkably satisfying that after leaving Baltimore in order to win a championship, a certain pinstriped team could not get it done with him.  Mussina will be a borderline Hall of Famer, but I’m not sure he’ll make it in.
