With his eligibility to join the AARP less than eight months away, Jamie Moyer turned in a performance that would be the envy of pitchers half his age. The 49-year-old Moyer threw four perfect innings to help the Colorado Rockies to a 7-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants in a Cactus League game Thursday. The veteran lefthander, bidding to make the starting rotation, struck out four and threw 30 of 45 pitches for strikes and lowered his ERA to 1.00 in four starts. Moyer sat out last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his left elbow in November 2010. A veteran of 24 seasons, Moyer owns a career record of 267-204 with a 4.24 ERA.

MLB Preview 2012: Colorado Rockies

The biggest issue surrounding the Colorado Rockies this season will be the issue that has surrounded them since their infancy, pitching.

MLB Preview: Colorado Rockies

2011 RecapThe Rockies struggled to a 73-89 record in 2011, good for fourth place in the NL West.

The team traded away starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez, but was able to get great value...

Burning the Mets: Kazuo Matsui

The Deal: In 2003 the New York Mets signed Japanese SS Kazuo Matsui to a 3 year deal worth $20 million. Kaz Matsui was a star shortstop in Japan. In his last season in Japan, Matsui hit .305 with 33 home runs and 84 RBI. The numbers were impressive, but as soon as Matsui arrived in Flushing something seemed to be missing. Somewhere during the trip to New York, it seemed as though...

Who will debut first: Arenado or Harper?

The Washington Nationals surprised some when the club optioned outfielder Bryce Harper, 19, to minor league camp. It's in the club's best interest to keep Harper in the minor leagues longer to keep his service time down, but sending him down this early shows that they believe he isn't ready yet. Rockies Nolan Arenado, 20, is also likely to get the call to the show this...
