Mussina's Lousy, Junkees Still Win

Well, it was one of those nights. But back to the Moose. He's becoming the Melky Cabrera of pitchers. Back on May 31st he handily beat the Tigers 6-1 and led the league in ERA and all over talk radio it was declared - the Moose is back! We haven't seen him this effective in years!

Fast forward four starts:

Red Sox: 4 ER in 6 IP
Oakland: 3 ER in 7 IP (not horrible)
Cleveland: 6 ER in 5.2 IP
Phillies: 5 ER in 5 IP

Works out to an ERA of 6.85.

If the "ace" of your staff is pitching as such, forget it. You're sunk.

Give props to the Junkee offense - yes, Arthur Rhodes is 100 years old, but they got it done, and kept pace with Boston, who looks like they have a better chance THIS YEAR to dethrone the Yanks than last year.

And with the Tigers and White Sox doing great, the wild card is no sure thing.
