Evaluating Mike Mussina’s Hall of Fame case

Mike Mussina: 270-game winner, five-time All-Star, seven-time Gold Glover. Hall of Famer? Over an 18-year career, Mussina was always one of the best pitchers in the league. He was never the best. Mussina never started the All-Star Game, and only had one 20-win season. The right-hander from rural Pennsylvania can list six top-five Cy Young finishes […]

Buy Former Yankee Mike Mussina’s Florida Estate — $850,000

Former Yankee pitcher Mike Mussina is selling his lakeside Florida estate for a solid $850,000. So, if your a rich Yankee fan snow bird who might be moving to Florida, this is the perfect house for you! The features inside aren’t exactly dazzling. It’s basically just a normal house. No theaters, or bowling alleys, or basement bars or anything like that. Pretty boring if you...

The Orioles Don’t Care About Our Expectations

In 2012, the Orioles — fresh off a losing streak dating back to the Cal Ripken / Mike Mussina / Davey Johnson squad of 1997 — shocked all of baseball by winning 93 games and the American League wild card game.

This Date In Royals History: April 5, 2001

If Mike Mussina had been an Atlanta Brave, he'd be going into the Hall of Fame

Wait a minute. I know what you're thinking:I'm gonna piss and moan about Yankee-hating Gammonites in the Pooperstown vote. Well, you are wrong. How dare you. Nothing, NOTHING, could be further from the truth. This isn't about Mike Mussina being blackballed because he was a Yankee. Nope. He lost because of the F Troop-sorry state of the Orioles during the 1990s. If not for the wretchedness...

Others will fall short of election, it may not be because they’re undeserving, but rather because of the thought process of some of the voters. ESPN’s Pedro Gomez tweeted Monday, “Anyone with a problem with HOF voting...

The Hall of Fame’s Standard, and Its Biggest Problem

With the baseball off-season moving into a little bit of a lull, the next few weeks of baseball writing often take on a decidedly Cooperstown-centric swing. Hall of Fame ballots have been mailed to the 600 or so voters, and they have until December 31st to decide how to fill those ballots out, so those of us with some semblance of a platform usually try to influence the voters while...

What my 2014 Hall of Fame ballot would look like

The Hall of Fame is set to announce its Expansion Era results Dec. 9. Most certainly, one of Joe Torre, Bobby Cox or Tony La Russa, if not all three, have an excellent chance of getting elected. If so, they would have to wait until Jan. 8 to see who would join them in the Class of 2014. Credit: National Baseball Hall of Fame     I don’t have a vote as to who gets elected, but...
