|And Jamie Moyer earned a spot on the Rockies' starting rotation; at 49, he could become the oldest pitcher to win a game in league history.|
Yes it is possible - neither Satchel Paige, Jack Quinn or Hoyt Wilhelm won past the ages of 47, 48 & 48 respectively. That said, it's pretty sorry that a man almost 5 decades old could win a MLB game - if that isn't an blatant clue that there's way too many teams. I would predict there's at least 100 to 125 guys that belong in Triple-A. The fact that Moyer was never considered a freak or a Cy Young winner let alone an All Star (just once) & is extremely average just proves it more so.
