If the Yanks place him on waivers should the SOx put a claim in on him?

Nothing against Mussina really, but that crouch-to-set move he does when he's pitching from the stretch is hugely annoying.

Let's ask this: Will Moose go Hall?

The Twins already claimed somebody in a block attempt which puts them at the end of the line. I can't remember who it was.

Edit: Thank you Doublem23, I was completely drawing a blank for some reason.

"If" is the biggest word in the English language. Why would they do this? He's one of the few shining lights for them this year. They don't need to make trades to build themselves up, they just grab the 'ole checkbook and call Scott Borass on the first day of free agency signings.........

... a few days before the White Sox knocked Washburn around at the Cell. Take that Twins.

The Yankees aren't going to put Mussina on waivers. The White Sox aren't going to get any big name pitcher in a waiver deal. Really, they shouldn't, although every time a White Sox starter has a bad game people will complain that it is evidence of Kenny Williams' incompetence.

The postseason eligibility deadline is coming up. The value of players to contending teams will diminish greatly after that. High-priced players have already been paid most of their salaries. The incentive to rid non-contending teams of the contracts will diminish.

And we can put an end to this waiver talk.

The Red Sox would claim him, with Beckett possibly being shelved.

That would be a fun trade negotiation.

The White Sox would have a crack before them.

From the game when Jose Contreras went down with the Achilles injury, I had hoped that the Sox would look at the possibility of acquiring Mike Mussina. But I have to admit that Clayton Richard (and for one start, Lance Broadway) have done just fine in Contreras' stead. Contreras, Broadway and Richard have combined thus far for 10 wins. In September, Richard will hopefully add a few more.

No, the Sox don't need Mussina. What the Sox need is a healthy Scott Linebrink. If Linebrink comes back strong, I like the Sox' chances to win the division.
