According to Ken Rosenthal, the Pittsburgh Pirates were one of the teams that have sent scouts to watch soon-to-be 49 year old left hander Jamie Moyer pitch.  Moyer is recovering from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in 2010, and which cost him the entire 2011 season.  Rosenthal quoted scouts who said that Moyer looked just as good as he always has.  The speculation was that he would probably fit best on a West Coast team. I wouldn’t really read much in to the Pirates being there unless we hear more on this.  It’s one thing to send a scout to watch a guy pitch.  That’s due diligence.  It’s another to hear a rumor that the team is talking with the pitcher, or made an offer, and I don’t think we can get that from this.
