The guy is 45 years old and still pitches very well.

Look at their records this year and you might think he's as good as Buehrle. He isn't, is he?

AL versus NL - huge difference.

Jamie Moyer is Mark Buehrle, but 15 years older.

If you were to tell me Mark would pitch for 22+yrs I would be happy! I think I heard Moyer a year or so ago on the B&B show talking about his conditioning. I am pretty sure he does the bike thing where they pedal as fast as they can for like an hour straight(I think his wife is an instructor), and he rehabs his arm like he is coming back from Tommy John surgery every year. This guy is a nice #5 starter in the NL.

I think you're talking about spinning classes. You only go all out for a few minutes at a time during an hour of different paced stationary bike riding.

16-7 with a 3.71 ERA is better than #5 numbers, probably a #2 on most teams. But he was 14-12 with a 5.01 ERA last year, a soft tosser like him depends a lot on defense and luck so it's not surprising to see his stats vary like that.

I look at Moyer and think Buehrle could win 300 games.

Obviously Mark would have to stay around for awhile, which he's already said he doesn't want to do. One thing going against Mark is that the Sox haven't been great during his time there. Being on a perennial winner would've probably had him half way to 300 already.

Ya, that is what I meant. The name of the class slipped my mind.
