The great baseball Odysseus of our time, Jamie Moyer, is somewhere between the isle of Lesbos, the isle of Sirens, and returning home to the face that launched a thousand fly balls in his great 24-year journey. Or something like that. Jamie Moyer, almost 50 freaking years old, is a baseball warrior and he's getting one last shot:

Jamie Moyer Signs Minor League Contract With Rockies - Baseball Nation
"Colorado, as in Coors Field, as in the extremely hitter-friendly Coors Field. Coors Field is less hitter-friendly than it used to be, but that's like saying a rabid wolf with three legs is less dangerous than a rabid wolf with four legs. It's still a miserable place for pitchers, and Moyer is a guy who was a contact fly-ball pitcher before he had Tommy John surgery. So."
