The story (link here) is basically that Jamie Moyer (age 48) will have elbow surgery but is NOT retiring from MLB and plans to pitch in 2012.
Why do I love this story? Because when Jamie Moyer does retire, I will then be older than every MLB player. Jamie is my last shot, my one single thread to the fact that there are (well, IS) a MLB player older than me. Once that’s gone, I feel I will truly never play in the majors (yes, I know I’m slightly delusional.)
So, G-dspeed Jamie on your surgery and I hope to see you on the mound in 2012!!!!
