Jamie Moyer: 'I'm Not Retired'

Two weeks ago, Jamie Moyer was released for the third time this season (Rockies, Orioles, Blue Jays).

And so now he’s got time to play golf! That’s what retired people do, often. But Moyer says he’s not retired! Tom Mahon:

JAMIE MOYER wanted to make it clear. So clear that he said it twice:

“I’m not retired. I’m not retired,” he said Wednesday at a news conference at the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament at Lake Tahoe, Nev. “I’m just kind of laying in the weeds and just trying to figure out what’s going on.”

(“JAMIE MOYER” is in caps in that quote because those were the first two words of the article, a stylistic device, not the writer trying to make any kind of point.)

Moyer went on to say that he doesn’t see himself coming back as a relief specialist, only as a starter or long reliever. He’s got his agent out looking for a spot, but “so far there aren’t any takers.”

Enough teams are looking for pitching that someone might take a flyer on him. He’s out there! Playing golf! But he wants to play baseball again! Won’t you please help, major-league GMs?
