Well Now

The Yankees STILL have the best post all-star game record even after a horrible 16-0 loss to the Tigers who now trail one game behind New York in the wild card standings.
Many questions are popping up with one being will Mike Mussina still remain in the starting rotation.
Mussina, from what I have seen, has only had two games in which he has had a successful outing, but his last three mirror Kei Igawa.
Mussina claims that if there is a pitcher in the Yankees organization that is better than him, he will remain a starter.
Sorry to burst your ego there, but Ian Kennedy may replace you and possibly even bring back Igawa, both as of now are better than you.
I wouldn't be surprised if they bring Ron Guidry out of retirement as an emergency sub.

The other question is will the Yankees make the playoffs.
Forget about the AL East, the run is over. The Wild Card slot is still up for grabs as the Yanks trail the Mariners by to games and they will play each other next week.
The Yankees begin a three-game series against the Red Sox tonight at home with Andy Pettitte taking the hill. This is a must win sweep for the Yankees to gain needed ground in the East, but a two-of-three will only give them one game.
September is a relatively quiet month with the exception of a series with Seattle and Boston one last time.
For the rest of the month the Yankees deal with Toronto, Tampa, and Baltimore.

This is now a sprint for the finish.

    The Yankees are a much better team than the ones chasing them in the Wild Card, so they should be playoff bound unless there's a massive collapse.

    What worries me now that Mussina is out of the rotation is what's going on with Phil Hughes. I probably wouldn't have noticed this unless he was on my fantasy team, but his home/road splits are ridiculous (he's a reverse Wandy Rodriguez or Ervin Santana)

    In other words, all his wins are on the road, all his losses are at home, and his ERA has a 5 point difference between the two (terrible at home) - is he just unable to handle the Bronx? How many starts, do you think, does one have to make before this can be considered a trend...? I was hoping it was that home games were against tougher opponents, but he got lit up by the Devil Rays...

    Hey, maybe Torre will figure it out and only pitch him on the road, and juggle in somebody else at home (since Mussina is "Officially" still a starter, the Yankees technically have a 6 man rotation right now - maybe Moose just needs more rest between starts? If he only does home games, that would definitely give him more rest)
