The Minnie Minoso of Fantasy Baseball

13 04 2009

White Sox legend Minnie Minoso is famous for suiting up for the Sox in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s.  The baseball commissioner prevented the 68 year-old from returning in 1990, though he did play for the independent league’s St. Paul Saints 1993 and 2003.

If there’s a fantasy equivalent, it’s probably Jamie Moyer, a long-time favorite of the Hurricane.  Last year, I joked to Hurricane that he should give me a list of pitchers that were valueless to our team, and that he was about to drop for Jamie Moyer.  I’d assumed Moyer had retired, but he hadn’t, and Hurricane actually did add him for a start or two last year.  And indeed, now at age 46, Hurricane’s slotted him in for his start against the Nationals.  We’ll see how this plays out…

Update: Moyer’s line was 6IP, W, 5 Ks, 6 ERA, 1.67 WHIP.  Not great, but, a win’s a win.
