Is he too old?

although i probably wouldnt draft him, i dont think he is terrible gamble in the final round. he could bomb. he could suck it up and put up 15 wins with decent ratios in the final year of his career. he wont have much in the way of k's so his upside is pretty limited so drop him in a heartbeat if he struggles.

Very true. Who would have predicted Kenny Rogers to win that many games last year!

Moyer gave up 44 homeruns last year. 44 8-o . Pitching at Safeco. His previous career high was 28.

I know baseball players continue to perform at a high level in to their 40s these days, but at some point everyone loses it. Moyer's time is near, if it hasn't already come.

But other than that, he's awesome.
