Is it over?
Moyer's now got more releases (3) than major-league wins (2) this year.
At 49, that's not a good thing. Or for that matter, at 39 or 29.
Moyer, who opened the season in the Rockies' rotation, has now been released by the Rockies, the Orioles, and the Blue Jays. Moyer seemed like a good fit with Toronto, as that club went through a stretch of losing starting pitchers like Spinal Tap loses drummers.
But Moyer started only twice for the Jays' triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas, and racked up an 8.18 ERA.
Will he find a fourth employer this summer? It seems unlikely. In his defense, Moyer's got a brilliant strikeout-to-walk ratio in 27 triple-A innings this season. But he also gave up four home runs in those 27 innings. More to the point, there's a big difference between following triple-A hitters and surviving against the big leaguers.
Then again, Moyer couldn't be any worse than Jonathan Sanchez ...
