Jamie Moyer

    Aug 6, 2014, 3:58 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Chicago White Sox

    Adam Dunn probably will hit 500 home runs, but that doesn’t mean he should be a Hall of Famer.

    Julio Franco was still playing in the majors at age 48–and still playing really well at age 46–and now seven years after retiring he’s ready to put on a uniform again to play some independent ball.

    Apr 1, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

    Ryan Howard batted cleanup for the Phillies on Opening Day, going 2-for-5 with a walk (and three strikeouts) in a wild 14-10 win over the Rangers, but manager Ryne Sandberg is switching things up for Game 2 tonight.

  6. One game, one pitcher … who do you choose?

    Mar 27, 2014, 4:40 PM EDT

    Pedro Martinez

    Somebody asked me this question on Twitter: If I could have any pitcher from any time pitch one game (say a seventh game of the World Series or the ubiquitous “pitching for your soul” scenario”) who would I choose? I immediately typed: Pedro. 1999. This is always my fallback position. Back in the Trivial Pursuit…

    Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs are already on board as new Phillies’ announcers. Now here comes a Hall of Famer: Mike Schmidt will join CSN’s broadcast team this season for all 13 Sunday home games at Citizens Bank Park, the Daily News has learned. Schmidt, a 12-time All-Star with the Phillies, will join play-by-play man…

  8. Jamie Moyer, Matt Stairs to man the Comcast booth for the Phillies

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:40 PM EDT

    Matt Stairs

    Now this is fun: Todd Zolecki reports that Comcast SportsNet will announce Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs have joined its Phillies broadcast team as early as tomorrow. They’re just finalizing the contracts. Both Stairs and Moyer played for the 2008 World Series champs and both seem — from this distance anyway — to be a lot of fun. Bonus: with those…

    Brad Lidge pulled himself out of the running to replace Gary Matthews as the Phillies’ television analyst and now Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that Jamie Moyer interviewed for the job. According to Zolecki the “top candidates” for the gig are Moyer, Mitch Williams, Mickey Morandini, and Kevin Stocker. Doug Glanville apparently removed himself from…

    Happy New Year’s Eve.

    Pedro Martinez has a book? So does Jamie Moyer. It’s called “Just Tell Me I Can’t,” and Moyer and it were profiled on NPR’s “Fresh Air” show yesterday. There is a transcript of some of his highlights here. And, with the caveat that I listen to NPR a lot so I’m not trying to make…

  12. Might Jamie Moyer come back as a knuckleballer?

    Sep 7, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Jamie Moyer throwing

    I’d put the chances at the 50 year-old Jamie Moyer actually coming  back as a knuckleballer at the closest thing to zero there is without actually being Jamie Moyer and knowing otherwise, but this story from Stan Hochman of the Philadelphia Daily News is fun and makes for good day dreams. Here’s what the co-author…

    Mark Appel

    It’s a tradition here at Hardball Talk to pick the winners and losers from the draft, even though we’re years away from having any idea who came out on top. And we’re not ones to mess with tradition, no matter how silly it may make us look in the end. Let’s rock. Winners Mark Appel:…

    One of my favorite parts of the draft each year is all the relatives of current and former big leaguers being picked out of high school and college. Conor Glassey of Baseball America has combed through thousands of potential draftees to put together a pretty extensive list of players with MLB bloodlines, along with some…

    Jamie Moyer lasted only 10 starts with the Rockies last season after returning from Tommy John elbow surgery and spent the rest of the year trying unsuccessfully to pitch himself back to the big leagues at Triple-A, but he still hasn’t given up on another comeback. Moyer, who’s now 50 years old, was in Seattle…

  16. Despite shaky outing in minor league game, Roy Halladay expects to be ready for season

    Mar 23, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    Phillies pitcher Halladay takes a breather during a workout before a MLB spring training baseball game with the Yankees in Clearwater

    Roy Halladay was back on the mound this afternoon for the first time since he was pulled from his start last Sunday after one inning due to a stomach virus. And the results weren’t all that encouraging. In a minor league game against the Blue Jays, Halladay retired just seven out of the 18 batters…

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Up next: The Colorado Rockies. The Big Question: Can the Rockies dig themselves out of last place? The Rockies went 64-98 last…

  18. It’s spring training for PED moralists, too

    Mar 17, 2013, 10:14 PM EDT

    Blue Jays' Melky Cabrera hits a two run double against the Yankees during the first inning of their MLB spring training baseball game in Dunedin

    Hey, not everyone can show up in March with their PED outrage in mid-season form. Scott Ostler is going to need to get a few more reps in after this performance: Among the things that ain’t what they used to be: the shame and disgrace of being busted for steroids. Exhibits C and C: Bartolo…

    spt-story-ben-sheets-100325.standard[1]

    Arm injuries wrecked Ben Sheets‘ career and the four-time All-Star hasn’t pitched in the majors since July of 2010, but he’s still just 33 years old and is apparently making a comeback. Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors reports that Sheets threw for scouts yesterday in Louisiana and the Yankees, Phillies, Braves, and Angels were…

    Jun 13, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    miguel tejada a's

    Baltimore’s Triple-A roster is littered with big names and former big leaguers, including Miguel Tejada, Jamie Moyer, Lew Ford, Pat Neshek, J.C. Romero, Joel Pineiro, Bill Hall, and Nate McLouth. Some of them, like Ford, are thriving as they try to make it back to the majors one last time, but the 38-year-old Tejada is…

    Jun 9, 2012, 10:33 PM EDT

    moyer getty

    The dream is still alive for 49-year-old Jamie Moyer. According to Roch Kubatko of MASN, the veteran lefty threw five shutout innings Saturday in his first start with Triple-A Norfolk. He allowed just one hit and struck out five while displaying pinpoint control. Moyer posted a 5.70 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 53 2/3 innings…

  22. Not done yet: 49-year-old Jamie Moyer signs with Orioles

    Jun 6, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    Apparently being released by the Rockies last week won’t be the end of the line for Jamie Moyer, as the Orioles have signed the 49-year-old left-hander to a minor-league contract. Moyer will report to Triple-A and join the rotation in Norfolk, which has amassed quite an amazing collection of former big leaguers. In addition to…

  23. Jamie Moyer clears waivers, released by Rockies

    Jun 4, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Colorado Rockies v Miami Marlins

    As expected, Jamie Moyer cleared waivers after being designated for assignment last week and the Rockies released the 49-year-old left-hander. Moyer got off to a nice start for Colorado after missing all of last season following Tommy John surgery, but struggled overall with a 5.70 ERA, .328 opponents’ batting average, and 11 homers allowed in…

  24. The Padres send Jeff Suppan packing

    Jun 1, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    Jeff Suppan

    The fallout from Friday’s Yasmani Grandal promotion has come: the Padres designated Jeff Suppan for assignment prior to their game against the Diamondbacks. The 37-year-old Suppan started off with two surprisingly strong starts for the Padres, but he was 0-3 in four outings since. Plus, the appearances were getting worse. From first start to last,…

    We’ve had all kinds of fun with the story of the 49 year-old Jamie Moyer coming back from Tommy John surgery and actually landing a job in the major leagues. But now it seems that fun is over: Rockies designate Jamie Moyer for assignment. — Tracy Ringolsby (@ROOTSPORTS_TR) May 30, 2012 Sad jams. Moyer made…
