Scouting Moyer II

Will he land a job?
In his five-year major league career Moyer’s winning percentage has gone constantly downward: .636, .444, .375, .308 and .250. He’s a free agent and the Rangers have announced that they won’t re-sign him, probably figuring that they don’t know exactly what will come after .250 but they also don’t know exactly what might be living in the bottom of the Arlington sewer system, and sure as hell don’t want to find out.
Unless he impresses somebody tremendously in spring training, Moyer will have to go back to the minor leagues and work his way back. I think he still has a major league arm, and with regular work and no help from Tom House has a good chance to get the gears to mesh.
