He blocked one to Atlanta, too, apparently. Who in their right mind would block a trade to Pitcher Heaven?

He must want to end his career in Seattle, nothing wrong with that.

As a Braves fan yes, although I'll wait for conformation first......


Confirmed on BBTN.

Why would the Tigers do that??.. :-? Are they going on to their fourth closer of the year now?..

I'd rather end my career with a shot to get a ring in Atlanta or Houston. Does Moyer have a ring? I don't think he does.

Moyer has a house and family in SEA, I see why he would block the trades.

yeah, but if he liked the M's so much he would have given them something for him, then resigned with them when he wanted to retire.
