Memorabilia From The House That Ruth Built

California Correspondent September 19, 2008 3

As the Yankees open their final series at the House the Ruth Built, Peter Abraham spoke with Mike Mussina:

“Talked to Mike Mussina this afternoon. He wants to purchase the flag pole from Yankee Stadium and install it at his home in Pennsylvania. ‘I know it’s going to cost me,’ he said. ‘But that’s what I want.’

Mussina even has planned out how he will get it home. The idea, he said, would be disassemble the pole, have it hauled to Pennsylvania on a truck then welded back together. Moose even wants a flag from this weekend to run up the pole every morning.

So what other players want a piece from Yankee stadium? Here’s our list.

– Carl Pavano wants the to buy the clubhouse gurney for the next time he gets injured.

– Kevin Brown wants the clubhouse wall that broke his hand when he punched it, marking the final downturn of his career.

– Cynthia Rodriguez wants the facade of the stadium to use as a fence around her $12m Coral Gables estate (as part of the divorce settlement of course).

– Hideki Irabu, the 250lb Japanese pitcher who Steinbrenner once called a “fat pussy toad“, wants the clubhouse buffet table, but he’s going to have to sumo wrestle David Wells for it.

– Jason Giambi wants to buy the right field homerun post and use it as a beer bong.

– Darryl Strawberry and Doc Gooden are in a bidding war for the bathroom mirror.

– Chuck Knoblauch wants to buy back his psyche. He left it somewhere on the infield.

– Roger Clemens wants to buy the Babe Ruth plaque in Momument Park, but Hank Steinbrenner thinks it’s creepy how he rubs it for luck and isn’t returning his calls.

– Don Mattingly wants to buy the desk in Girardi’s office (he won’t get it any other way).

– Tim Wakefield wants Aaron Boone’s homerun back.

Freddy Sez wants his season pass extended, but Hank says no hobos allowed at the House that George bought.

– Wade Boggs want to buy the equestrian police stirrups and saddle.

– Scott Proctor wants his arm back. He left it somewhere in the bullpen.

    Freddy is the best. You just hate him because he wouldn’t let you bang the pan with the spoon.

    Scott Harper, the idiot who jumped into the netting behind home plate wants to buy the net, but he’s banned for life so he can’t.

    Mussina only wants the flagpole so he can kidnap Pavano and hoist him up it at the crack of dawn.
