The thought of Mussina winning #20 against the Orioles

Would anybody get a sick feeling in their stomach if he accomplishes this feat against our beloved Orioles?

I projected his remaining starts, although I think in reality it will be a bit different as you will see further below.

August 12 @ Minnesota

August 17 @ Kansas City

August 23 @ Baltimore

August 29 vs Toronto

September 3 @ Tampa Bay

September 8 @ LA

September 14 vs Tampa Bay

September 19 vs Baltimore

September 25 @ Toronto

I could see him going 4-3 before possibly facing the Orioles, because it's a tough stretch. If that happens, it will surely be a tough game to watch.

However, because of off days, I'm sure the Yankees will make sure Mussina pitches every 5 days. Fortunately, he'll miss the Orioles the second time around by a day.

Revised starts

August 12 @ Minnesota

August 17 @ Kansas City

August 23 @ Baltimore

August 29 vs Toronto

September 3 @ Tampa Bay

September 8 @ LA

September 13 vs Tampa Bay

September 18 vs White Sox

September 23 @ Toronto

September 28 @ Boston

There are 10 possible starts. Anything can happen. As good as Mussina has been this year, I don't think 5 wins is a given

    • Tampa is a purely transactional team like the A’s.   The Orioles have more resources and can be a hybrid much like the Indians or Mariners.  They can lay out for one or two big free agent contracts and extend their own players.   They will begin being more transactional in 3-4 years when the first wave of players gets closer to free agency.
    • Are the O's willing to participate in the posting process?
    • I wonder if this guy could be a second pitching addition for us.   Seems like he might make a good long reliever/spot starter. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/12/npbs-hanshin-tigers-post-shintaro-fujinami.html  
    • I wimped out and said 120-139.  I really want the answer to be 140-159.   But I’m guessing the cap will be right around 140 or just under.   One factor could be how many pitches Grayson is throwing to get through these innings.  In his pre-injury outings, he was cruising along at 14.9 pitches per inning.   Those are very low stress innings.  But if Grayson finds himself throwing 18 pitches per inning next year in the majors, that’s a different ballgame.  
    • A little short on job title, but as a grateful longtime reader from back in the day, noticed this in Szymborski's chat today. SEA is one of those teams gotta fight past for AL top 6 in the shorter term. 1:06 Josh R: Noticed this in a transactions list :                                      Mariners Named Dave Cameron senior director, player procurement,                                                 Is this the former FanGraphs Dave Cameron?     1:06  Dan Szymborski: Yes     1:06  Dan Szymborski: (Sorry, was making sure he made it official or I couldn’t say anything)     1:06  Dan Szymborski:     Dave Cameron @OneDaveCameron     I should probably mention this now that it’s official. I get to do some really cool stuff for the @Mariners going forward. Quite a journey from @ussmariner (or asbs-m for us extra old people) to now. I couldn’t be more excited. Sincere thank you to all.
