Mussina was good, not great

Clayton CoffmanAnalyst INovember 21, 2008
I've become very interested in the debate of players' chances into the Hall of Fame. It's a great honor to even be mentioned when it comes to H.O.F. eligibility. Mike Mussina called it a career recently and his name has come up about getting into Cooperstown. Lets set the record straight first. Mussina has 270 victories and was a five-time All Star. He left Baltimore for the big stage in New York. However, his career as a Yankee never reached the point that it was with the Orioles. Mussina never won a Cy Young or an MLB Title. His postseason record of 7-9 didn't stand out either. I can remember some moments of greatness for Mussina but just not enough to warrant a trip to Cooperstown.
