Flunkie, Minnie batted in 2003?
drjimmy11: Good for him. I was a fan of his when he was on the Orioles (when I was in my teens).
Moyer is a great example of the silliness that goes on with player evaluation in baseball- the kind of stuff "Moneyball" talked about.
Moyer was gotten rid of by the Orioles and probably other teams because he "didn't throw hard enough to win." Except he DID WIN. All the time. In the face of him succeeding over and over again, they just kept saying he would never succeed
Wakefield began his pitching career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, but is most remembered for his 17-year tenure with the Boston Red Sox, starting in 1995 and ending with his retirement in 2012 as the longest-serving player on the team. Wakefield, at the time of his retirement, was the oldest current active player in the majors, and one of two active knuckleballers; the other being R. A. Dickey.
