The Colorado Rockies have offered veteran starter Jamie Moyer a minor league deal, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post. Renck points out on twitter that Moyer is 49, and any deal would presumably take him through his 50th year on this planet, a thought at which all of us should bow our weakling heads in shame:

  • Rockies Offer deal to Moyer - Troy Renck | The Denver Post
    "Multiple major league sources confirmed that the Rockies are trying to finish up a minor-league deal with the 49-year-old Moyer, who last pitched with the Phillies. The left-hander debuted in 1986 with the Cubs and went 9-9 with a 4.84 ERA with Philadelphia in 2010 before undergoing elbow ligament surgery that forced him to miss last season. He threw in winterball and auditioned for scouts, incuding a represenative from the Rockies. Moyer would be brought in to compete for a rotation spot and help tutor the young pitchers on staff."
  • Twitter / @TroyRenck - "So the mystery pitcher... was Jamie Moyer. He's 49. Would come to camp to compete for job and help with younger pitchers"
