Poll: What’s Next For Jamie Moyer?

Jamie Moyer opened the season as a feel-good story following his return from Tommy John surgery at age 49, but he lasted just ten starts with the Rockies before being designated for assignment this afternoon. The veteran southpaw posted a 5.70 ERA in 53 2/3 innings for Colorado.

At his age, it’s easy to assume Moyer will finally hang up the spikes. He’s shown tremendous perseverance by continuing his career after elbow reconstruction though, so it would be an unsafe assumption at best. That said, it takes two to tango. Moyer has to find a club willing to sign him so he can keep playing.

What should Moyer do? Retire & spend some time with his grandchildren.

Philly needs pitching

Royals should bring him on board as a long reliever, so I’ll never have to see Vin Mazzaro in a game again.

Or as a starter. How many starters better than Moyer do they have? Paulino, Chen, and Duffy, but Duffy’s on the DL and out for the season. Maybe Sanchez is better, but he’s on the DL. Why not take a flier on him?

I look forward to him playing in the Independent League for the next decade.

He should teach some youngsters like Kevin Millwood to pitch in Seattle.

I’m beside myself imagining a Padres rotation at some point in 2012 featuring Jeff Suppan, Jason Marquis, and Jaime Moyer….#dreamteam

There are teams that need pitching and sorry to say this, but he still has something left if you don’t look at his past two starts (@CIN, @MIA). Somebody will sign this guy, but I’m just not ready to point the finger at any one team… yet.

Redsox could use one more guy to fill in as a starter and then see how he does when they get Daisuke and the other guys in rotation healthy. If he does well and the rotation still is not at it’s full potential then keep him a starter. If the rotation is doing well and he himself is pitching well they could put him in the pen. If he is not doing well then  they could release him or stick him in Pawtucket. I realize he will be 50 yrs old in november, and Fenway is a hitters ballpark but i would give him a shot at a low price. I am not saying that the Redsox have any interest in him. I am saying that i feel that he would be a good fit right now in Boston.

He could pitch for the Cubs or the Padres.  He’ll definitely bring fans to the stands.

He could do the same thing pitching for the Barnum and Bailey circus.

 Cubs have 7+ starters better than Moyer at this stage of his career.  Maybe Padres.. they did just sign Marquis.

The Baltimore Orioles pitching staff has been horrible lately. They should sign Jamie Moyer to a minor league deal. It couldn’t hurt. He’s a lefty and used to play for Baltimore in the 90’s.

 I was thinking this before. I don’t know though.

He had a rift with Duquette when they were both in Boston.  Neither of them has reportedly gotten over it.  Don’t see it happening.

He’s a lefty.  Why even ask?  If he wants a job somewhere, someone will give it to him.

Play for free for the Padres.

Would love to see Jamie play the game until he’s 55, just to prove these so called baseball analysts wrong.

Well, they say a closer needs to have a short term memory, and who has a shorter memory than the elderly?
