Moose on fire

Who would've thought that Mike Mussina would hold a share of the American League lead in wins at this stage in the season? Not I, certainly.

After winning his fifth-straight start, Mussina is now in a seven-way tie for the league-lead in wins with six. Teammate Chien-Ming Wang is also among those seven.

In these five starts, Mussina has a 2.76 ERA (nine earned runs in 29 1-3 innings). He has also only given up 27 hits while striking out 17 and walking three over that time.

While the offense has been a disappointment through the first 41 games, Mussina has been a pleasant surprise. He has seemed to reinvent himself, and as long as he stays away from Manny Ramirez, it could be smooth sailing for the foreseeable future.
