Jamie Moyer

  1. Giancarlo Stanton murdered a baseball and broke a scoreboard

    May 22, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Stanton home run

    I mentioned this in the recaps, but this is worth its own post: Giancarlo Stanton’s homer off Jamie Moyer last night was something to behold.  For a couple of reasons. First, it was a freaking shotgun blast. It left the bat at 122.4 miles per hour according to ESPN’s home run stats thingy. That’s the…

  2. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    May 22, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Marlins 7, Rockies 4: Jamie Moyer pitched in his 50th different major league park. But he may have given up his longest most hellacious homer ever. Giancarlo Stanton hit a grand slam that went 438 feet in basically a straight line and broke the friggin’ scoreboard. Roy Hobbs stuff, there. Gave the Marlins the lead and,…

  3. Kevin Millwood notches 2,000th strikeout in beating Yankees

    May 13, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Millwood

    One could stump a lot of people with this question: who is the active leader in strikeouts among right-handed pitchers? It will soon by Roy Halladay, who stands at 1,980, but for now, Kevin Millwood is tops. The Mariners veteran fanned six Yankees in a 6-2 win Sunday, upping his career total from 1,998 to…

  4. Grumpy old men: Chipper Jones takes on Jamie Moyer

    May 6, 2012, 1:22 PM EDT

    Chipper Jones

    Chipper Jones was none too happy with Jamie Moyer during Saturday’s game, not after the 49-year-old left-hander accused of him of relaying signs from second base. The incident took place in the fifth inning, when Moyer stepped off the rubber and said a few words to Chipper at second base. MLB.com has the quotes: “That…

    mlb-101yearold-player-120425.standard[1]

    The oldest living ex-major leaguer is a Cuban by the name of Conrado Marrero. Marrero, a 5-foot-5 pitcher who played for the Washington Senators from 1950-54, turned 101 on Wednesday, and Paul Haven of the Associated Press was in Havana to document the occasion. Click here to read the story, but here are some highlights:…

  6. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 25, 2012, 6:03 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the New York Yankees in Arlington, Texas

    Rangers 2, Yankees 0: Yu Darvish finally arrives. Eight and a third innings, ten strikeouts and a big goose egg in the runs column against the best offense in baseball. Rays 5, Angels 0: David Price: five-hit shutout. Albert Pujols: 0 for 4. He has the lowest slugging percentage of anyone in last night’s Angels…

  7. Jamie Moyer was offered a post-baseball job

    Apr 19, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    After he became the oldest player to ever win a game the other night, Jamie Moyer said “I kind of wish I was a baseball historian.”  Well, his wish is the Hall of Fame’s command: To that end, the Hall of Fame has offered Moyer the opportunity of a lifetime, to study in Cooperstown as part…

  8. Throw as hard as Jamie Moyer, win free tickets

    free_admission_XSmall

    As a follow-up to Jamie Moyer not cracking 80 miles per hour with any pitch during Tuesday’s historic victory I wondered yesterday what percentage of adult males could throw 80 mph. Opinions varied pretty wildly, but the general feeling seems to be that one percent is probably the maximum and significantly less than one percent…

  9. How many people can throw harder than Jamie Moyer?

    Apr 18, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    radar gun

    Jamie Moyer not cracking 80 miles per hour with any of his pitches last night was noteworthy enough for me to write about it earlier today, but then I started thinking about his velocity as it relates to my own weak arm. Which brought me to this question: What percentage of adult males can throw…

  10. Jamie Moyer didn’t crack 80 miles per hour with any of his pitches last night

    Apr 18, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    Not only did Jamie Moyer beat the Padres last night, becoming the oldest pitcher in baseball history to record a victory, the 49-year-old left-hander did so without cracking even 80 miles per hour on any pitch. In allowing just two unearned runs over seven innings Moyer threw 87 pitches, 54 of them for strikes. According…

  11. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Apr 18, 2012, 6:08 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Boston Red Sox

    Rangers 18, Red Sox 3: The Rangers were definitely physically and emotionally into this game. In fact, they did a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line around the basepaths. Josh Hamilton drove in five, Mike Napoli drove in four. Rockies 5, Padres 3:  Jamie Moyer wins and thus becomes the oldest pitcher to ever win a game.…

  12. At 49, Jamie Moyer becomes oldest to win a game

    Apr 17, 2012, 11:39 PM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    After opening the season 0-2, Jamie Moyer was able to shut down the Padres on Tuesday and pick up his first victory, making him the oldest player in MLB history to win a game. At 49 years, 150 days, Moyer overtook Jack Quinn, whose last win came at 49 years, 70 days. Facing a struggling…

    San Francisco Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner throws against the Colorado Rockies in their Major League Baseball game in Denver

    Giants 4, Rockies 2: Madison Bumgarner took a no-hitter into the sixth, silencing the Rockies bats that rocked Tim Lincecum‘s world the night before. That, and some bad defense by Dexter Fowler, prevented Jamie Moyer from becoming the oldest pitcher to ever win a game. Can’t have errors behind the old guy or he’s toast.…

  14. Fact of the Day: Jamie Moyer is really old and Madison Bumgarner is really young

    Apr 12, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    fact

    At this point “Jamie Moyer is old” facts are getting a little out of control, but here’s a good one specific to today’s Rockies-Giants game. According to Elias Sports Bureau (via Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts): Moyer at 49 years old and Madison Bumgarner at 22 years old represents the largest age gap for a…

    Colorado Rockies pitcher Moyer, 49, makes a pitch against Houston Astros' Schafer in the first inning of their MLB National League game in Houston

    Jamie Moyer‘s 2012 debut was less than stellar. Making his first start since the 2010 season, the 49-year-old left-hander surrendered five hits and four runs (three earned) in five innings Saturday evening against a light-hitting Astros lineup. Moyer’s control was fine — he walked just one and fanned two — but his slow-moving deliveries looked…

  16. 49-year-old Jamie Moyer could make history tonight

    Apr 7, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    Jamie Moyer was one of the better stories of the spring, successfully securing a spot in the Rockies’ rotation at the age of 49 after missing the entire 2011 season following Tommy John surgery. And he has a chance to make a little history in his first start tonight against the Astros. Moyer, who is…

    The only thing sillier than predictions about who wins each division several months before the season ends is judging which team is the best before any games are played.  But hey, that’s never stopped me before, so let’s have a Power Ranking, shall we? And yeah, there is that big of a gap between the…

  20. 49-year-old Jamie Moyer makes the Rockies starting rotation

    Mar 31, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    Jamie Moyer has a history of defying the odds, so maybe we shouldn’t be surprised at this point, but Rockies’ manager Jim Tracy announced last night that the 49-year-old left-hander has won a spot in the team’s starting rotation. He’ll start the second game of the season on April 7 against the Astros. Moyer, who is…

  22. Omar Vizquel snags a spot on Blue Jays’ bench at age 44

    Mar 28, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Omar Vizquel

    Jamie Moyer is still fighting for a spot on the Rockies’ pitching staff, but the other elderly gentleman in spring training, 44-year-old Omar Vizquel, has secured a place on the Blue Jays’ bench for Opening Day. Toronto made it official today and also optioned his utility man competition, Mike McCoy, to Triple-A. Vizquel no longer…

    moyer getty

    A lot of people have been having fun with Jamie Moyer‘s age this spring. My friend Baseball Crank has been tweeting random players who are younger than Jamie Moyer. Guys like Sam Horn, Billy Ripken and Ozzie Guillen.  It’s kind of mind-blowing. Today Jim Caple of ESPN.com has a list of 49 Jamie Moyer facts.…

  24. This Jamie Moyer thing is gonna happen, huh?

    Mar 23, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Jamie Moyer

    As D.J. mentioned the other day, with Jamie Moyer, every outing matters. Well, his latest outing was outstanding: four perfect innings, striking out four. The Giants had a lot of starters in the lineup. While he had that one really bad start in a minor league game, in nine innings of major league action Moyer has…

  25. Jamie Moyer knocked around by Diamondbacks’ Triple-A team

    Mar 19, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    We usually don’t take spring training results all that seriously, but for 49-year-old Jamie Moyer, every outing matters. And today’s was a discouraging one. Moyer was knocked around for four runs on six hits over 1 1/3 innings this afternoon against the Diamondbacks’ Triple-A squad, according to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post. He threw…
