On September 22nd, Matt Moore went into Yankee Stadium and delivered a gem — 5 IP, 0 ER, 5 baserunners, 11 Ks. Even though it was against the Yankees B lineup, which was produced and directed by Roger Corman, his lights-out performance in September was exactly what he’d been doing in the minor leagues since 2007. His Triple-A year in 2011 — 1.37 ERA, 13+ K/9 in 52 2/3 IP. His Double-A stats in 2011 — 2.20 ERA, 11+ K/9 in 102 1/3 IP. Together, 1.92 ERA and 12+ K/9 in 155 innings. Those are Bugs Bunny numbers, and if anyone knows what “Bugs Bunny numbers” means, like Alfred E. Neuman, I’m all ears. Jay-Z would say hitters going against Moore have bunny ears. On Stephen’s top 50 fantasy baseball prospects for 2012, he listed Moore as number one. (I’d put Mike Trout there, but c’est la whatever.) So what can we expect of Matt Moore in 2012 fantasy baseball? Nothing until June 1st. If the Rays weren’t cheap, they’d have no adjective. Maybe the Rays can raise some money for Moore
