That might be it for the Moose

It’s not official yet. But I think we just saw Mike Mussina pitch his last major league game.

After Mussina did a television interview after the game, he was the last player into the clubhouse and his teammates were waiting all together in the room to give him a standing ovation.

Mussina thanked everybody then grabbed a can of Coke and a large container of McDonald’s fries.

Mussina is 270-153, but he probably cares more about being around his wife and family than spending three more seasons in a chase for 300 wins. He has all the money he could ever spend and he has a life he treasures in Pennsylvania. Sure, it’s possible he comes back. But when you listened to him talk after the game, he sounded like a man who is ready to walk away.

Here’s the audio of Mussina’s postgame interview:

Oh, and the reason he came out after six innings was that his elbow was hurting him after he was hit by that line drive on Tuesday.
