Rockies’ Moyer makes rotation, will pitch April 7 vs. Astros

Did you know that President John Tyler has three living grandchildren, and one of them is Jaime Moyer?

Retirement can wait. History beckons.

Jamie Moyer officially joined the Rockies’ rotation Friday, leaving him in position to become the oldest pitcher ever to win a major league game when he starts on April 7 at Houston. The 49-year-old will pitch second in the Rockies’ rotation behind Jeremy Guthrie and in front of Juan Nicasio. Jhoulys Chacin will pitch the Rockies’ home opener on April 9.

The Rockies will go with four starters until April 15 when Drew Pomeranz makes his season debut against the Diamondbacks.

Moyer won the job, outpitching Tyler Chatwood and Guillermo Moscoso, who are combined 50 years old.

So here's something I just realized.

When Jamie Moyer made his major league debut, both Pixar and Studio Ghibli had yet to release their first films under the studio proper; Luxo Jr. and Castle in the Sky were released around two months later. And now both are perhaps the pre-eminent animation studios in the world!

So whaddya say we have an angry linguistics thread?

Is there any other kind?

But if it is of a kind, then how can it be totally other?

When Jamie Moyer debuted I was five.... days old.

w00t! Got tickets for Moyer's debut game in Houston! The last time the Astros played the Rockies they lost 19-3, and Houston's starting pitcher from that game is starting on Saturday. So I think there's a pretty good chance I'll be seeing Jack Quinn's record going down!

Win #268!
