Mase, I’m a bit disappointed. “No 43yo has ever had a breakout year”. I was at the self check-out line at the grocery store, listening to the pod, when you said this. I looked like a lunatic, scaring several people in a 30ft radius when I involuntarily shouted JAMIE MOYER!!!! I even got a sideways look from the security guard. Mase, how can you forget his legend, or Nolan Ryan for that matter? Ryan had Robin Ventura in a headlock at age 46. And yes, Ryan’s decline did start at 42, but it didn’t affect his win-loss record until 44. Moyer, however, got better after 41. Dropped his ERA from a 5.21 to a 4.3 in two years, and won his first and only world series start at age 45. I know starting pitchers and starting QBs is not an apples to apples comparison. Brady has talked about his longevity as if he were the second coming of either. While odds are he has a Montana or Favre like stint in Tampa Bay, your hope (as a bucs fan) is that Brady has a stretch in Tampa like Moyer did in Philadelphia.
Speaking of Brady, what number will he wear in TB? Does he pay off Chris Godwin to get 12, or does he go back to 10, which he wore in college? He’d have to pay off Scotty Miller as well. Also, 10 would be an awkward number considering Eli…
Anyhoo, this week has had me busting out the spackle. I tend to jump with my fists in the air when I get excited. At my height, that doesn’t combine well with standard 10 foot ceilings. 2 for Bouye, 1 for Casey, and 2 for Gordon. I didn’t know who Glasgow was, so no hole for him. Is that it, or does John have one more trick up his sleeve?
