Mussina will make his decision soon

Mike Mussina knows he has a decision to make and it’s coming soon.

His agent, Arn Tellem, said in an e-mail this afternoon that he expects Moose to make a decision by the end of this week or early next week.

At this stage, it’s not about the money. It’s about whether he wants to commit to the time away from his family. Had Moose gone 12-12, I bet he would be officially retired by now. But winning 20 games complicated the process.

I still firmly believe he will retire and have yet to find anybody with the Yankees who thinks otherwise. If there is one player who can walk away after a great season, it’s Mike. Baseball needs him more than he needs baseball.
