God Bless Jamie Moyer. Not only has he had an amazing career up to this point…
“Uh, wait,” you are saying. “Did you just say ‘up to this point?’ The man is 48 years old, and his elbow literally exploded off his body a mere matter of weeks ago. He’s gotta be done, right?”
…I’m sticking with “up to this point.” In the spirit of Paul Newman in Cool Hand Luke, Moyer is not going to stay down. In fact, as we speak, Moyer is recovering from the arm-rebuilding Tommy John surgery usually reserved for saving the careers of pitchers young enough to have been sired by Sir Jamie.
All that matters is Jamie Moyer is continuing to show why we here at Dubsism are the biggest fans imaginable of the should-be-Hall-of-Famer and legitimate Presidential Candidate. We sincerely hope that whether we are counting strikeouts or electoral votes, we are counting on Moyer in 2012.
