#4 SP- C+

After the 2000 season the Yankees had won 3 championships in a row and 4 in 5 years. That year they decided to use their money and give Mike Mussina a ridiculous contract. Mussina has been a dissapointment since his signing and the Yankees have not won a championship since then. He was given a two year extension worth 23 million during the off season. In an off season were mediocore pitchers got similar deals to what Mussina got it looked like a steal. However, Mussina has been pretty much average this year and annoyed Yankees fans with the way he makes excuses seemingly after every start. Average isn't really a bad thing for a #4 guy though and since getting off to a terrible start he`s turned it around so I give him a C+. His contract will probably be a bad one next year and while I don't think the Yankees shoulod actively try to trade him I think they should at least consider it.
