An inspiring story, but it's time to move on from Jamie Moyer.Nine home runs were hit on Sunday at Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. Five of them were by the Colorado Rockies. In a slug fest, the Rockies found themselves on the short end, losing 7-5 to close out a six-game road trip at 2-4.The Reds showed exactly what the saying "solo home runs don't beat you" means.

A common baseball adage is throw [the barrel of] your bat at the ball. Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier took that to heart on Sunday while facing the soft-tossing, 49-year-old lefty Jamie Moyer. With the bases empty and one out in the bottom of the fourth inning, Frazier waited back on a 72 mph changeup and then turned on it for his fifth home run of the season and the...

Betting BIG against Grandpa Moyer

Best and Worst, with Stats

It started this morning. Checking out a few things on leaderboards, I noticed that Jamie Moyer, a personal favorite, had an unsightly 1.75 WHIP. Yet, his BB/9 was a better than average 3.14. Naturally, his H/9 was going to be bad. How bad? The worst among ERA qualifiers: 12.6 H/9 ip. Checking to see what score lead the category in this young season, I saw Gio Gonzalez leads the league...
