Orioles might be close to calling up 49-year-old Jamie Moyer

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun noticed that Triple-A Norfolk’s upcoming probable starters list doesn’t include Jamie Moyer, who’s made three starts there since being released by the Rockies and signing a minor-league deal with the Orioles.

It might mean nothing, but Connolly speculates that the Orioles could be on the verge of calling Moyer up for some rotation help, which would be a remarkably quick return to the majors for a guy who looked just about finished for the Rockies.

Moyer had a 5.70 ERA in 10 starts for Colorado, serving up 11 homers in 54 innings while allowing opponents to hit .328. He’s been impressive at Triple-A with a 1.69 ERA and 16/0 K/BB ratio in 16 innings, but it’s tough to imagine Moyer not getting knocked around in the AL East.

      I will give you 2 & 3, but what zombies aren’t destroyed by conventional weapons? Granted, you may have to hit the head and not an arm to kill them, but nearly every zombie book/comic/movie has them being destroyed by weapons.

        Good point. I stand corrected. Zombie killing is an intricate art but you are right. Conventional weapons will do just fine.

    Is it my imagination, or does Jamie Moyer look like Charlie Sheen in that pic?

    Moyer needs to be called up tout suite, as his reinstatement as a Major League player will once again render me, as a 48 year old guy, still YOUNG! I can’t be old if there’s still a MLB player older than me active!

      It is your imagination.

    Dana Eveland’s wife is about to give birth according to reports around the Baltimore Sports’ airwaves, thus he will going on leave to be with her. Moyer to Baltimore seems to be a transaction away
