Grand Pappy Moyer is 50!!!


Jamie "Grand Pappy" Moyer hit the half century mark on Sundy, turning 50 years old. The crafty lefty pitched 25 seasons, 5 of which were with the Phillies. He also played for the Cubs, Rangers, Cardinals, Orioles, Red Sox, Mariners, and Rockies. Assuming he retires, he ends his career with 269 wins with a 4.25 ERA over 4074 innings. Baseball-Reference ranks him as the 125th best starting pitcher of all-time. Not bad for someone who made a career out of low 80's slop and precision. Above is a video tribute the Phillies did for the beloved relic.

That really was a cool video. Moyer is an awesome dude.

I have no doubt as soon as he decides to officially retire, 15 teams will offer him a coaching job.

I hope we offer him a coaching job!

The only reason Dubee remains is because Moyer isn't ready for the job yet.

Lets not forget: Chooch credits Moyer for teaching him how to call a game.

Don't think it's out of the realm of possibilities that the Mariners won't try get him to pitch next season as a gimmick with a 50 year old. It wouldn't surprise me to see it happen.

I would love to see Moyer pitch at 50. I want him to continue until he reaches 300 wins.

Crazy? Yes, but fun nonetheless.
