Remember that time he threw a no-hitter to win his 20th game of the season? That was awesome.

I remember the one where Sandy Alomar hit the ball JUST foul with one out in the ninth, then Moose got pissed and struck him and the last guy out.

Man, that was a great night :P

Man, do I HAVE to post the "Curse of the Moose" again...:P

EDIT: Hell, I'll just link it :D

Entertaining (and I guess since I'm still kinda new, I haven't seen it before), and I realize it was all in good fun, so consider this to be a friendly debate.

I'm not sure how it can be said that Mussina has never won a critical playoff game. As for any "penchant for failing in important games," I guess people see what they want to see. He's had more successes than failures.

Here's what I mean when I say people see what they want to see: Remember when the Yanks blew the 3-0 lead in the ALCS to the Sox? Mussina really let them down! Keeping the Sox scoreless through the first 6 innings in Game 1 while big-time gamer Schilling got shelled wasn't "critical"! Handing his bullpen a 4-2 lead in game 5 against Pedro wasn't good enough!

(Yes, you can put me in the camp of those who cheers against Mussina because I 'hate' the Yanks, but who still likes Mussina and doesn't blame him for being a Yank.)

I also remember the year when Daniel CaBBrera led the league in K/BB ratio. He was absolutely pinpoint that year :rolleyes:

He's the greatest pitcher to wear an O's uniform of the last 25 or so years....and we all hate him. Makes sense...

You do know he left us for the YANKEES, right? If he went to, say, the Braves, I'm sure we would hate him less.
