What a way for Moose to end his season. Congrats on that 20th victory.
YEAA!!! congrats, he deserves it
Resign that man.
Anything more than a one-year deal?
Year one year deal with a team option.
Yeah, I like that.
I was thinking just offer him arbitration and if he accepts, great, if not, that’s fine too.
I’d say one year with an option (vesting option, maybe?).
Get outta my head, Ivan!
2 years. Second year with a buy out.
Way to prove all the critics wrong.
He definitely earned his 20 wins. Hope he comes back!!!
Interesting that Moose apparently decided when to take himself out of the game. Almost backfired.
Moose said it’s either 3 years and 300 wins or retirement for him. So those thinking of bringing him back for a year or two may have to think again.
I heard that interview. It didn’t seem like he meant he’d want a 3-year deal or bust from one team. He just said that when he’s deciding whether to retire it’ll be a consideration whether he wants to play 3 more years.
It’s pretty funny that this season of Moose’s isn’t even in his top 5 seasons in his career, yet one extra win does so much for him. If you need proof that pitcher wins are overrated, just look at Moose’s career. This is probably his 7th or 8th best season, yet his career high in wins. And even take into account how many innings fewer he pitched than some of his early years in Balt. HOF all the way.
NYFan50, you’re right. If he’s coming back he’s going for 300, but that doesn’t mean he’s expecting a team to give him three years, although I’m sure he wouldn’t object!
Tampa Bay winning the AL East and Moose winning 20. I’m not sure which one I would have considered my unlikely at the start of the year. My guess, though, is Moose winning 20. Great to see.
Had you asked after his 1-3 start, it definitely would have been considered more unlikely. He appeared to be toast. Good thing he started pitching like Moyer.
thEse postgame interviews with the mets are cracking me up
and not bad for a “jamie moyer” like pitcher, winning his 20 finally lol
And he broke a Moyer record too for oldest pitcher to win 20 for the first time. Moyer then did it again, hope Moose does too
It’s all thanks to Hank lighting a fire under Moose… =)
Mike can you tell me our score again, LT got a TD and Cooley is doing pretty good.
Sorry, I was in the shower. 62.40 to 60.30 me.
lol, its cool thanks. I should probably just pay 10 bucks for stat tracker.
Does this guy still fit into the championship mold? Can he do 20 again? Even 15? I personally think i would rather have moose than pettite come back, somethings going on with andy and I dont think he can do it anymore,
THE LINE UP is out for tonight. click my link
Doubt he does 20 again, we still don’t even know what the look of this team will be if he does decide to come back. Right now though, and this is beside the 20 wins, becuase even if he stood at 18 right now, you’d have to say Moose>Andy.
The yankees have to go after 1 and while sentiment will be on Andy’s side, I think Moose has more left in his tank at this point, not to mention the further Andy’s fastball dips and his cutter cuts less, the less effective he will be as his offspeed stuff is largely average. Moose has compensated for his loss of heat with flat up better pitching and his arsenal has much more depth and quality then pettite
Moose is posturing for a two year deal. Also, I don’t see it as an either or situation for Mussina and Pettitte for next year. If they want to come back, sign them both and let Girardi figure things out next year. The last thing you want happening next year is to have an injury or two or one or both of the young guys crap out again and be stuck with trotting out the equiviant of Ponson and Rasner every fifth day.
dude should have 22 or 23 wins the lineup killed him some of his games
Your right! The bullpen didn’t help him a few times too. But it was mostly the lineup that cost him a few games.
Agreed. I’d much rather have Mussina than Pettitte, and I am a very big Pettitte fan.
Mussina improved in every aspect of the game this year. Just comparing his K totals from this year to last year shows you how much he’s re-invented himself. He could serve as an adequate #3-4 starter next year at the very least. Yanks should do what they can to bring him back.
I couldn’t stop myself from smiling once the game ended… I was so nervous the last few innings, it was weird.
Moose please do not let the door hit you in the rear. I am one who was a fan of his pitching with the O’s. Was actually at a lot of his games, even the last one he pitched for the 0′s and beat the Yanks. He really started to talk too much and bitch a lot over the last few years.
He never pitched inside in NY except this year when he had NOTHING left as far as gas goes. Still a very good pitcher but if he only cares about winning 300 do it somewhere else. We do not play for milestones here, outside of Alex the Purple Lipped Princess. I want a guy who wants to win the WS, and go out there and plan on giving it his all like a CC Sabathia type. We will have our chance to get him.
We already let Santana go which was a HUGE mistake. Lets take the money Andy and Moose were making and sink it into an ace, and take the Giambi money and sink it into a short term first baseman. Lets take the money that was being spent on Abreu and save it for next year, and lets trade for a real young athletic ball player for the OF.
Lohud Comment of the Day right there.
Sabathia doesn’t want to come to new york…That might sound like speculation…But it will be seen as reality very soon, you watch. The Yankees could opt for Ben Sheets but whats the difference between Sheets and Pavano…Well Sheets is in ace and Pavano a hack…What’s they’re similarities? They’re both oft injured. No thanks. I think the Yankees really want A.J. Burnett, or I think the Yankees most viable chance is landing A.J. Burnett, which again isn’t a great thing considering the years and dollars that man will want. Where does that leave us…Trade Market, and a ticket out of town for Hughes I’m afraid.
