Update on Mike Mussina

My Journal News colleague Sam Borden is at the Knicks opener tonight and while there he ran into agent Arn Tellem.

Sam asked Tellem about two of his clients, Mike Mussina and Jason Giambi. Here is what he learned:

Tellem said the story that Mussina was planning to make a decision by the end of the week is untrue. Tellem is going to visit Mussina in Montoursville on Friday so they can talk. But he doesn’t necessarily expect Moose to give him a decision at that point. He’ll file for free agency regardless, and Tellem said he wouldn’t be surprised if Moose wants more time to think it over.

As for Giambi, he said the Big G’s first choice by far is to stay with the Yankees and, as far as he knows, that door hasn’t been closed. Giambi wants to work something out and so that’s what they’re exploring first.

Once Yankees beat writer, always a Yankees beat writer. Thanks to Sam for filling us in and advancing the story a little.
