Jamie Moyer Says He Still Wants To Pitch

The Colorado Rockies designated Jamie Moyer for assignment on Wednesday, and that could be the end of Moyer’s career.

Or maybe it won’t. While Moyer was getting hit hard — a 5.70 ERA — half of his 10 starts could be characterized as at least “decent”, and several big-name pitchers, including Ubaldo Jimenez and Tim Lincecum, currently have higher ERAs than Moyer.

So is this the end for Moyer? Not if he can help it:

Asked if he is interested in trying to continue to pitch, Moyer said “I am.”

For now, though, Moyer has a few days to kick back.

“I’m going to go home (Wednesday night) and go to a high school graduation on Saturday," he said in reference to the coming event for Hunter, his second-oldest son. "His team (Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego) is in the playoffs so after the graduation we will to go a baseball game."

So maybe he can treat this as a bit of an in-season vacation. The 10-day DFA period means that other teams might contact the Rockies with interest. There are teams that have pitching issues at this time. Somehow, I don’t think the final chapter of Jamie Moyer’s MLB career has yet been written.
