Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina went through some rough spots early in the season and it sparked Yankees' boss Hank Steinbrenner to quip that Mussina “just needs to learn how to pitch like Jamie Moyer.”
That quote was printed at some point in April and since then Mussina has won 18 games. But here's the fun part:
Mussina said after the article appeared, he received a glove and autographed ball from Moyer in the mail.
“That said, thanks for doing it my way,” Mussina said.
Everybody should do everything Jamie Moyer's way. That guy is the man.
