Jamie Moyer will Undergo Tommy John Surgery, He Needs to Retire


Jamie Moyer will undergo Tommy John surgery tomorrow in an effort to repair his 48-year-old left elbow.  

But he still wants to play again.  This was posted on his foundations's Facebook Page last night:

It's official – Jamie is having surgery Wednesday and we are cautiously optimistic superman will make a comeback! – Karen and Jamie

Look, I know it might be blasphemous to criticize Jamie around these parts, but it's time for the old man to hang it up.  Tommy John surgery has a recovery period of at least a year.  That means Moyer will be attempting a comeback, from serious elbow surgery, at age 50.

Maybe a shred of dignity, Jamie?

    The only legit reason I’ll accept Jamie even having this surgery is so he can have a catch with his kid without his arm falling off. Enough is enough Jamie, thanks for the memories, enjoy being retired and rich at 50.

    Hope that Jamie’s surgery is successful, and that he can pitch again if he wants to. Maybe some relief work? If it doesn’t work out, then fine. Would be great to see him somewhere as a coach or manager some day.

    50 years old is not an old man, friend! Maybe it won’t work out but it’s his choice to make. He’ll make the right call.

    In Jamie’s defense, a lot of people come back from Tommy John throwing harder. We could see his fastball hit 80.

    Maybe the recovery from the surgery is buying him the time he needs until Dubee retires and he takes over.
    One can hope, eh?
