Jamie Moyer still wants to pitch again. He’ll just have another hobby now as he rehabs his elbow after Tommy John Surgery.

Moyer has joined ESPN’s Baseball Tonight as an analyst and will start tomorrow for Opening Day coverage. The 48-year old had surgery on his left elbow in late November after rehab and throwing routines did not help the ailment.

He’s sometimes known as being rather talky and long-winded, but at the same time is monotone when speaking to the press. Hopefully his knowledge shines through in a TV-friendly manner. We all know Moyer is a good guy, but is seemingly quiet while being talkative. He’ll have to get the juices flowing on the BBTN set.

Nonetheless, a great pickup by ESPN. He’ll bring loads of knowledge and add a new wrinkle to the panel.

    Won’t be any worse than Al leiter, that guy bores me to tears. Thank got MLB network has Mitch Williams or I’d sleep through all baseball analysis.

    Good for Moyer! I prefer the soft spoken types. I can’t stand those hypervolume jerks who shouts and demand attention to oneself. It seems to be the trend today and I’m turned off by those clowns.

    I don’t want him to yell, but sometimes during an interview postgame, you can hardly hear him. Needs to project all that knowledge!

    I’m really happy for Moyer. He will add a lot to this show. I look forward to watching him.

    It’s good for Jamie but I think it is a waste of his talent as a pitcher he could be a pitching coach for a aaa team and help develop some young pitchers while he still stays active in the game

    He joins his father in-law, Digger on ESPN – way to keep the money in the family Jamie

    He will have good insights since he has played in both leagues
