Mussina is the ACE in Philly!
Philadelphia – (AP) Philly GM Chris Holt thought long and hard before he ended up dealing HOF catcher Ivan Rodriguez and a young stud pitcher in Brad Penny in return for Mike Mussina and A.J. Pierzynski. He realized he needed a legitimate ace to bolster the Phillies staff if they were going to make a title run. However, not even Holt could have envisioned what Mike Mussina has done early in the year.
Mike Mussina is off to one of the best starts in the history of the CBL. Mussina is 6-1 with a 1.19 ERA. He has logged 60.1 IP while only surrendering 29 hits and only walking 11 batters. In 7 starts, Mussina has thrown 6 complete games and two shutouts. Mussina has thrown four 3 hitters against four different teams, the Cubs, Braves, Mets, and Padres.
