As you might have guessed from the headline, Colorado Rockies pitcher Jamie Moyer has been designated for assignment by his team, meaning that the 49 year old pitcher’s career, which began all the way back in 1986, could potentially be over.

Over ten starts this season for the Rockies, Moyer was pretty terrible. With a fastball that averaged 77 miles per hour, he was incredibly easy for batters to hit, as evidenced by the league leading 75 hits he’s given up so far this season.

I guess it’s sad that Moyer has likely reached the end of his career, but it’s kind of like learning of the passing of someone you know lived a full and long life. You might miss them, but deep down you know it’s for the best.
