Mike Mussina Set To Announce Retirement After 18 Seasons

Posted by Mark McCray |

Thank you for everything, Moose!!! Enjoy your time with your family.

Tien Mao/Gothamist.com:

30 wins short of 300 career victories and after the first 20-win season of his career, Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina is reportedly retiring. The 39 year-old Mussina, who has pitched in the Majors for 18 seasons with the Orioles and the Yankees, retires with a 270-153 record and a 3.68 ERA. Fox Sports says that Mussina will officially announce his retirement later this week. And while Moose doesn't have 300 wins (the gold standard for Hall of Fame inductees), Fox points out that his Hall of Fame electability will be enhanced by the fact that he pitched in the steroid era and in the offense-heavy AL East.
