What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions

Your Jamie Moyer Update 6/17/10

Wednesday night brought more history from Moyer, who at the age of 47 years 155 days became the oldest pitcher to notch a “W” over the Yankees. But all the future hall-of-famer cares about is the win.

“I don’t think that I’m old. So I don’t believe it. Regardless of what people think or say I still feel like I can go out and compete, and that’s my ultimate job.”

Moyer tossed eight solid innings, in sharp contrast to the drubbing he suffered in his last start which proved to be the worst start of his 24-year career.  Even another future hall-of-famer had to pay Moyer tribute.

“He’s been doing it for a long time, a really long time,” Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter(notes) said. “He never throws the ball over the plate. That goes to show you don’t have to throw hard. He knows what he’s doing. That’s why he’s been around so long.”

Moyer defined the term “crafty veteran” by lulling the Bronx Bombers into easy outs with an array of pitches that ranged from slow to slower. At times, Moyer’s pitches were floating by the radar gun in the mid-60s. While Moyer only allowed three hits, two of them were homers, putting him just one behind Robin Roberts’ all-time of 505 home runs allowed.

Oh, in case you were curious, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last oldest guy to knock off the Yanks was Phil Niekro at 47 year 122 days.
