Yesterday it was Mike Mussina, today we’ll go with Jimmy Key. No particular reason, the Ben Shpigel link in today’s link dump made me think of him. I remember Key as being solid but unspectacular, though his numbers suggest he was a lot better than a realized, with a 5.2 WAR season in 1993 and a 4.1 WAR season in 1994. Of course, I think everyone remembers Key for Game Six of the 1996 World Series, when he outdueled Greg Maddux en route to New York’s 23rd World Championship. Good times, good times.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. The late NFL game features the Eagles at the Cowboys (doesn’t it seem like these two play every Sunday or Monday?), plus the Rangers Knicks, and Nets are in action. You all know what to do, so have at it.
