Your Jamie Moyer Update – 3/11/2012: Spring Training Against the White Sox

Jamie Moyer made his Major League debut on June 16, 1986.  Yesterday, when Moyer pitched against the Chicago White Sox, he faced two hitters that hadn’t even been born by the time Moyer was in the bigs – Jared Mitchell (Oct. 13, 1988) and Eduardo Escobar (Jan. 5, 1989).  Moyer’s opposing pitcher, John Danks, wasn’t born when Moyer was picked by the Cubs in the 1984 draft.

Moyer has faced the White Sox 24 times in his 24-year career, making 21 starts and throwing 141 1/3 innings. He owns a 4.20 ERA against them, although Sox hitters have just a .308 on-base percentage against him.

The 49-year-old left-hander was solid in his second spring training outing, allowing three hits, one run,  and striking out two in three innings of work for a Colorado Rockies split squad in a 5-2 victory over the South Siders on Sunday. Meanwhile,  John Danks, who is expected to be the White Sox starter on opening day, struggled with his command. He issued four walks, hit a batter, and struck out one likewise in three innings.

Personally, I think they missed a great opportunity here…how awesome would it have been if the Whiteys had brought back Minnie Minoso one more time,  so we could have Moyer pitching to an 86-year old?

Did You Know? Moyer is the only player in baseball history with at least 40 hits, 20 runs scored, 10 runs batted in, and 500 home runs allowed.

    Jamie moyer has always been overrated and he certainly is now. He is 49, but teams still look to sign him for his “veteran” presence. Yet he is not even on the roster! I don’t know why Colorado signed him.

    The ‘Did you know?’ at the end is amazing. I guess if you play as long as he’s played, you can say awesome stuff like that about yourself!


  3. Here’s the best part about these Jamie Moyer posts… aside, of course, from being reminded that old people like you and me can kinda, ya’ know, still do stuff.

    My visual is of you, in the stands at some spring training game, t-shirt cut off at the belly, beer gut hanging out proudly, even more so as you hold up your hand-made poster that reads “I heart you, Jamie.”

    That wasn’t all that far from the truth, was it?
