Jamie Moyer too old?

Lets get back to the rankings in my original post. Here's how I would rank them:

Santana (at the top until has a WHIP over 2.00 in one game)
Willis (hasnt allowed a run so far)
Moyer (consistent, crafty)
Affeldt (young, awsome stuff. could move up if he starts putting it together for some better outings)
Woody Williams (old, not reliable)
Garland (better than Woody, but in the basement until he can proove he can beat somebody other than a slumping Yankees team)

I agree with your rankings but would sadly rate Garland over Williams. I think Woody's on his last leg.

ok Moyer might be old and his 40+ age might be catching up with him but he still pitches in one of the best pitchers parks with prolly the best defense in the AL (and maybe all of MLB) backing him up. and to those who say that his stuff is not good enough he actually has better numbers against righties than lefties in the later years of his career... so his stuff had improved in the last few years... but since i don't follow the Mariners too much i dunno if or how much his stuff has deteriorated this year
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

right on! Moyers unique (perhaps old school baseball) style of pitching is not as affected by his age like say, Pedro Martinez's would be. He does not throw 95+ mph fastballs becuz he dont have to....his change-up uis just that freakin good! Give the guy a break, everyone has his off days (and weeks, months, seasons, etc). BTW, hes younger than Clemens whos having an awesome season so far.

Oh snap, whitesox04champs, did you see Moyer's performance tonight? Ha ha. I think you'll be eating crow on this one.

Got to agree, Moyer's pitching style will last him a couple more seasons in the majors. If any position can take you into your mid-forties, it's a pitcher. Just look at the careers of the greatest pitchers in the game, and to what age they kept being effective pitchers.
