Share your memories of Orber Moreno


October 10, 2003
At least Moreno showed the Mets one thing in the last month of the season...he's not the closer of the future. The memory that will always stick with me is when Howe brought Moreno in with the bases loaded to face Vladimir Guerrero. It was obvious the Mets wanted to see what Moreno could do in a big spot. After a couple of decent pitches, Moreno ran the count full and then gave in to the hitter by leaving a nothing fastball on the outside part of the plate that Vlad hit for a bases-clearing double. I was not impressed. I'm pretty sure Jim Duquette started scouting available closers for next year immediately after that hit.

This guy had a very good season in AAA Norfolk. When I watch this guy why is he throwing the same pitch twice? The hitters are gonna take him deep. Well i'm sure he'll be a fine reliever some day.

Has all the talent in the world, and great stuff, but he just can't stay healthy. Moreno had trouble pitching two days in a row, and was abit inconsistant. Time is running out on Moreno to prove he could be a solid setup man.

I am from his home town and I have seen him pitching way more than everybody else; I follow his games and know the way he pitches and used to pitch. The ball in the strike zone is to be hitted. Because this or that person made a hit on him does not mean that he is a bad pitcher or needs to be removed from the team. No pitchers have perfect records.

Orber also has an incredible fast ball and excellent control that few people in the majors have. After he had surgery he came back and improved a lot, this shows the class of the player that we are talking about. Also Orber has great personality and sense of humor.

I do not agree with this step back to the AAA league again. He needs the chance to show how good he is. I hope he gets over the sprain. He, the Mets, Venezuela and baseball needs him to get back. Hope to see you pitching again Orber, good luck. By the way Happy Birthday and remember your buddies from Oricao.

I met numerous players and got their autographs as they stop by Durham with their team. I have to say Orber is only one of a few baseball players I've seem with braces. That was before he ever had a cup of coffee, so I assume he don't have them anymore. Good kid, didn't like to talk much though. Hope he'll make it back to the Big League soon.

Orber is still pitching in Mexico, although his last action in the U.S. minors came with the Cardinals' top farm club, Memphis, in 2006. (He also got invited to the Tigers' camp in 2008.)

He has a baseball clinic in Florida:

I liked Orber Moreno a lot in 2004, when he went 3-1 with a 3.38 ERA in 33 relief appearances. Though he wasn't used much that year, he was a sturdy, dependable guy out of the bullpen. I thought he was going to be a cog in the Mets 'pen for at least a couple years, but 2004 was his final season with the team.
