Rosenthal: Mussina to retire

I have still been holding some hope that Mike Mussina would return to the Yankees next year, but FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal is reporting that Mussina has decided to hang it up after his first and only 20-win season.

This is a rather significant blow to the Yankees' pitching staff. The Yankees may have to give in to Andy Pettitte's demands to simply fill up the rotation with capable arms.

But those are decisions for another day. Today we celebrate Mussina's extraordinary career. Mussina finishes with a record of 270-153 and a 3.68 ERA. Pitching his entire career in the American League East, those are terrific numbers. Thanks for the memories, Moose. And thanks for giving me one more opportunity to post the above picture.

Great shot of Moose. I miss him already, especially that Bugs Bunny curveball.
