    Phillies, Jamie Moyer agree to two-year contract extension

    Contract would keep Moyer around past his 50th Birthday.

    Apparently the result of a run of stellar Grapefruit League appearances, the Philadelphia Phillies have come to terms with the 47 year old lefty on a two year, $14 million contract extension, which reportedly includes a third year player option at $9.5 million that could keep him in Philadelphia through 2013 and past his 50th birthday.

    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Isn't Jamie Moyer with another team this year?

    No. Whether all this about an extension is an April Fool's joke or not, he is still with the Phillies and has (no joke) won the 5th starter spot over Kyle Kendrick due to his great spring.

    Nope. He just won the 5th spot in Philly again, beating out Kendrick. Who probably muttered something about getting schooled by a grandpa...

    To be honest, I don't know if this is a joke or not...

    I haven't seen this reported by any legitimate news site so I tend to doubt its validity but it's worth noting that Moyer is 42 victories away from 300. If he does hang on somewhere until 50 he will warrant Hall of Fame consideration

    Why? If Bert Blyleven can't make it how can Moyer even with 300 wins?

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    That has to be a joke. Philly would be insane to agree to that.

    Most respondents to the post assume it is AFJ

    Nobody clicks on the link to find out for sure? Read the comments if you're still wondering.

    Okay, okay, I'll admit, I knew it was a joke from the outset.

    Hope this doesn't get me banned like the fake Barry Larkin for Benny Agbayani trade from 2003...

    Knew it had to be a joke, considering how awful he was last year.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    If you ask me Blyleven should be in regardless of his being under 300 wins and Moyer should not even if he does somehow stick around long enough for 300
