Is he too old?

Postby wkelly91 » Tue Mar 15, 2005 8:29 am

Jamie Moyer is forty-two, had a crappy year last year, and I read he will be pitching the opener 8-o

Is he worth drafting :-?

Yes...if your 12 team draft is going 33 rounds.

I agree - unless really, really late in a deep draft, I wouldn't touch him.

i took him in the 28th round of a 29-round 12-team mixed

he's on the bench, if he blows, he's cut, but if he's good, who's to say 2004 wasn't a blip?

It's not like he's looking to regain his heater....just a lost year. I'm not counting on it, but he could post an ERA around or under 4....which is pretty decent buy in the 28th round

I had Moyer last year in an AL only league. He was pretty decent in the beginning of the year. I traded him before he collasped. Was the collapse an age thing? Maybe.

If he gets off to another good start, you may want to think about trading him before he cools off again.

To answer your question, yeah in the late rounds I think he is worth picking up.

I would stay away from Moyer entirely.

Do Not Draft Moyer.

He went undrafted in my 280 player league.

Moyer is garbage. You can only get by with smoke and mirrors for so long. He has very little upside, and will suck in WHIP, K's, ERA, and W's. And I'll bet that he finishes last in the league in saves too :-D
