Not Everybody Makes It

It pains me to write this but I just read on Pete Abraham's blog that J.B. Cox will be retiring. I remember when Cox, Hughes, and Tyler Clippard were the crown jewels of theYankees farm system. Hughes as the ace, Clippard as a solid #2, and Cox as the next great Yankees closer. Clippard and Cox are tough reminders that most prospects, no matter how well touted, end up as busts.

Mussina To Retire

So says Ken Davidoff.....

Mussina in my opinion is a clear hall of famer, especially after the great year he had last year. Although not the answer to Pedro Martinez some fans hoped he would be, he was a great pitcher for the Yankees. He was also earned the only big contract for a pitcher that has worked out reasonably well that I can remember. Good luck to him and his family.

He will be sorely missed on the 2009 team but his decision can hardly be a surprise. You can expect to see an Andy Pettitte deal wrapped up soon.
