    Jamie Moyer

    The Rockies have announced Jamie Moyer will start game 2 of their 2012 season.

    At age 49.

    Good for him. And ain't baseball great.

    I was flabbergasted. Not necessarily that he made it as a fifth starter somehow. But as the second starter?

    I hope Moyer keeps pitching until he's 50. He's definitely an oddity. he's had a pretty damn good career, especially beyond the age 35, 82mph fastball and all.

    2 good things for Moyer:

    1. His first start will be against the Houston Astros, the team with the worst W/L record in 2011.
    2. The game will be played in Houston, not Colorado.

    Excellent. There's still a MLB player older than me.

    We should all wish to be so lucky when we're closing in on the half-century mark. I'll be happy just to be playing first base for a church softball league when I'm that old.

    i actually remember Moyer's debut (or near debut) with the Cubs. Harry Carey was talking him up etc.... i was a little kid. I'm now near 40.

    This was my thought EXACTLY. To quote (or ripoff) Vanilla Ice: "Go Moyer, Go Moyer, Go!"
