    Agreed, and ditto on Pavano. Last year all I heard was him being unhappy in NY. If he comes around, sure, keep him. But if we end up with a surplus of arms, he'd be my first vote to go.

      I say trade him now while he still is worth something.
      You don't want to trade him if he gets another serious injury because then he's worth just a bag of used baseballs.....not a new box.

        I am with you on this one. This guy is going to be a heck of a player. I think you would regret getting rid of this guy.

          Did anyone see Musina's line for today? 4IP, 10 hits, 12 runs. I realize that it's the preseason, but I get nervous every time he steps out on the mound. You never know what kind of performance you're going to get from the highest paid pitcher in baseball. He was almost unhittable in his last outing. You would think that a veteran like him would be more consistent.

            This is just my speculation about Mussina, but my guess is that his problems in recent years have come from a drop in velocity and leaving his breaking stuff up in the zone. He was never really a pure power pitcher, but he did rely on hard stuff mixed in with some nice breaking stuff (like his knuckle-curve). But when the hard stuff isn't as hard anymore, it's more difficult to keep hitters off-balance and location becomes extremely important. Mussina is having problems hitting the locations.

                Weakness

                sorry about the doublke post but I believe our only weakness is all the new players in the bullpen can they hand the New York Media? Our starting pitching just fell apart last year through a combination of injuries and the media's pressure we should be great this year
