Dubsism: Your Home of the Jamie Moyer for the Hall of Fame Campaign

Tomorrow night, ageless wonder Phillies southpaw Jamie Moyer will be attempting to win his 261st major league game. Moyer notched win #260 last Thursday against Atlanta. I have to admit, it shocked me as well when I read that. In case you were wondering, this is his 24th major league season. Moyer made his major league debut on June 16, 1986, more than three years before Atlanta’s 20-year-old rookie right fielder savior of the franchise Jason Heyward, was born. 

Actually, at age 47, the veteran left-hander is old enough to be father to a big chunk of major leaguers. For the vast majority of his career, Moyer has been a middle-of-the-rotation starter. He’s never really been known as a dominating pitcher; a career 4.22 ERA tells that story. Like I said, 260 wins shocked the shit out of me; don’t look now, but Moyer has quitely put himself amongst some pretty notable names in the record books.

260 career wins puts Moyer in front of Hall-of-Famers such as:

  • Jack Morris 254
  • Carl Hubbell 253
  • Bob Gibson 251
  • Juan Marichal 243
  • Mordecai “Three-Finger” Brown 239
  • Whitey Ford 236
  • Jim Bunning & Jim “Catfish” Hunter 224
  • Don Drysdale  209
  • Hal Newhouser 207
  • Dennis Eckersley 197 (although Eckersley also had 390 saves)
  • Sandy Koufax 165

Moyer doesn’t have far to go to pass a few other baseball immortals:

  • Bob Feller 266
  • Jim Palmer 268
  • Burleigh Grimes 270
  • Red Ruffing 273
  • Ferguson Jenkins 284
  • Robin Roberts 286
  • *Bert Blyleven 287

Moyer has also piled up 2353 career strikeouts, which puts him in front of:

  • Early Wynn 2334
  • Rube Waddell 2316
  • Juan Marichal 2303
  • Lefty Grove 2266
  • Jim Palmer 2212
  • Catfish Hunter 2012

The Hall-of-Famers that can see Moyer in their rear-view mirrors:

  • Robin Roberts 2357 
  • Sandy Koufax 2396
  • Dennis Eckersley 2401
  • Jack Morris 2478
  • Don Drydale 2486
  • Christy Mathewson 2507

Those are just the headers on Moyer’s Hall of Fame resume. Check out some of the bullet points:

Let the arguing begin.

* Yeah, I know Blyleven isn’t in the Hall of Fame, but he damn well should be. If you agree, talk to these folks

    Don’t see it. Never was that great. 2 seasons with twenty wins, barely over .500 win percentage with a career era over 4.2… Benefactor of high scoring teams… Needs 325 wins to be considered IMO
