Ken Mandel is reporting that the Phillies and Jamie Moyer are likely to agree on a multi-year deal, but they have not been able to announce it because of scheduling conflicts.
Jamie Moyer wants to return, and the Phillies want him back, so what's taking so long? At this point, it appears the two sides can't coordinate schedules. One person familiar with the team's thinking believes it's a matter of time for an announcement, and the 46-year-old may sign a multiyear deal.It'll be nice to have Moyer back as a 4th or 5th starter. You know what you're going to get from him and you do not have to worry about his velocity dropping or anything. He'd also be willing to do anything to help the team. I assume the deal may be announced sometime after Thanksgiving.
For the market being open, teams are moving relatively slow. This could be a good thing because teams may be letting the market reset itself. Some values have been getting extremely high, but we'll see.
