BRONX, New York (Ticker) - Mike Mussina has not won a World Series ring in his six years with the New York Yankees. He'll get two more cracks at it. The Yankees on Monday re-signed the veteran righthander to a two-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the New York Post reported that the deal is worth $22.5 million. Mussina, who turns 38 next month, filed for free agency after the Yankees declined his $17 million option for 2007. Mussina is coming off a season in which he went 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA. He has won at least 10 games in each of the last 15 years, including seven seasons in which he reached the 17-win plateau. A five-time All-Star and six-time Gold Glove Award winner, Mussina is 239-134 with a 3.63 ERA in 16 major league seasons with Baltimore and New York. He has the fifth-most wins of any active pitcher and his 2,572 strikeouts place him seventh on the active list. Since signing with the Yankees in 2001, Mussina is 92-53 with a 3.80 ERA in 187 starts.
