Don Mattingly had 20 at bats against Jamie Moyer in his playing career. That’s more than all but two players currently on the Dodger roster. So, the manager has activated himself for tonight’s game. Sure, Donnie Baseball got his last career hit in a different century, but if you can’t get around on Moyer’s mid 70s heater, you shouldn’t even be playing co-ed softball.
In fairness to the 49 year old Moyer, his ERA is currently a very respectable 4.01. That’s serviceable most places, but especially when half of his innings, give or take, are thrown in the hitters’ haven of Coors Field.
That said, I’m setting the over under on strikes Moyer throws to Matt Kemp at 1, and betting the under.
