What to do, what to do. The same pitching dilemmas year after year. You have a veteran past his prime and a youngster who can’t seem to find his sweet spot.
At the opening of the 2010 season, I predicted Moyer wouldn’t last past the All-Star break. I’m sticking to that. I don’t think Kendrick is a good go-to in the absence of Jamie, but Moyer is past his prime. He was past it last year and the year before. We are long past prime and now we are past usefulness. Are we waiting til his arm falls off mid-pitch?
I have a ton of respect for Jamie, but eking out a win in Atlanta because you got eight runs of support early is hardly cause for celebration. I just hope management is working its magic behind the scenes for when the wheels fall off. Because they will.
