The ageless Jamie Moyer, 49, is hoping to make the starting rotation for the Colorado Rockies.  If he does that — and if he ends up winning a game for them — he would be the oldest such pitcher to do so in major league history.  The New York Times compiles some fun facts about Mr. Moyer:
Has more career wins (267) than Bob Gibson, Whitey Ford, Juan Marichal and Catfish Hunter.
Has faced 23 Hall of Famers.
Started his career before 15 players on Rockies’ 40-man roster were born — including four pitchers now competing with him for a rotation spot.
Has played in 49 ballparks, including 14 that no longer stand.
Older than 8 current major league managers.
Older than 16 current major league general managers.
From ages 27 to 29, Moyer was 2-11.
From ages 38 to 40, Moyer was 54-21.
Career leader in home runs allowed (511).
Started the last game before lights were installed at Wrigley Field.
Beat the Hall of Famer Steve Carlton in his first major league game.
Second in career wins after age 40, with 103 (Phil Niekro had 121).
Beat the 1986 world champion Mets and the 1998 world champion Yankees.
Born Nov. 18, 1962, four months before the Beatles released their first album in Britain.

I hope he makes the cut actually.
