Moseley on his way to San Diego


Via Ken Rosenthal, the Padres are close to signing former Yankee Dustin Moseley to a big league contract of unknown terms. The Yankees recently non-tendered Moseley rather than going to arbitration with him in a move that Brian Cashman said was designed to “control costs,” which came after he pitched to a 5.99 FIP (-0.4 fWAR) in 65.1 IP. I fully expect Dustin to put up an ERA south of 3.50 in 180 or so innings with the Pads next year. Petco Park, the career reviver.

    He’d fit well in PetCo. He may just wind up being replacement level.

  2. How are we supposed to win in 2011 without IPK and Moseley?! Doomed I tell you! When we lose in 2011 I will be here to say I told you so!

    Seriously though, we’ll always have game 1 of the ALCS, Dustin. Godspeed.

    He has a place in the small part of my heart reserved for shitty players who I irrationally like anyway.

      Agreed. I wanted him resgined for no reason whatsoever. Like him more than Mitre, anyway.

      /irrationally hates Mitre though

    By taking advantage of the process of signing below-average pitchers & using the cavernous dimensions of Petco Park to favorably “adjust” their stats, the Padres can convert these sub-par pitchers into Class A & B draft pick compensation year after year.

    I think his agent is Darek Braunecker too, oddly enough.
