Octavio Dotel and Jamie Moyer: Random mind-blowing factoids

12

So Octavio Dotel just signed with the Blue Jays. As a Met fan who was at Game 5 of the 1999 NLCS to watch Dotel, then a rookie, give up the lead and then get the win in the Grand Slam Single game, I couldn't believe that Octavio Dotel is 37 years old. But then I wondered something and looked a bit further. It turns out that Jamie Moyer, who still has aspirations of playing this year, is about 11 years older than Dotel (11 years and about a week). So 11 years ago, when Robin Ventura hit that ball over the fence and Dotel was a rookie flamethrower for the Mets, Jamie Moyer was 37 - as old as Dotel is now. And he's still pitching. If Octavio Dotel pitched as long as Jamie Moyer, he'd pitch until at least 2021.
