Mussina and the Unit Give the Yankees Some Pitching Confidence
Sunday, April 09, 2006
The Yanks may be heading into the second week of the season with a losing record, but the Bombers won’t be down for long. Despite having trouble scoring runs after the blowout against the A’s on opening day, no one had any doubts that A-Rod, Jeter and the rest of the crew would be smacking hits before long. A bit of a slump in offense is certainly not desirable, but it was the uncertainty of the Yanks’ pitching that had the Yankees Chick biting her nails last week.

I’ve previously mentioned my insecurities about having the Yankees rely on an old man, an aging guy who has lost his fastball, and two guys more injury-prone than a brittle-boned rugby player to hold their competitors at bay, and I’ll probably continue to feel that way until all of them have World Series rings on their fingers. This week, though, I was quite pleased with both Mussina’s and Randy Johnson’s outings. The Unit pitched brilliantly in his opening day win, and he did nearly as well yesterday despite earning the loss. He is hoping to have a 20-win season, and as long as he gets the run support we know the offense can supply, he should surely be able to accomplish his goal. For his part, Mussina allowed 3 runs in seven innings in his first start of the season and just 1 in today’s beatdown in Anaheim. He doesn’t have the velocity he once had, but Moose has always been known for the impressive arsenal of pitches he has mastered and he can still get the best of a batter with one of his many available pitches.

So Pavano and Wright may struggle with injuries, and Chacon may need some time to adjust, but it’s good to know that our veterans still have the goods to lead the Yanks to the post-season.

    Hi, I stumbled onto your blog and I just wanted to say that I'm impressed, even though I don't like the Yankees (I'm a White Sox fan)

    Yeah, the Yankee starters will be good enough to get to the postseason, and once they are there it will come down to health and luck.
