What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
You have to admit, it makes sense reading this story on the blog which has been home to the Jamie Moyer for the Hall of Fame campaign for close to five years now. Before we go any further, we aren’t talking about the “big” Hall of Fame in Cooperstown; the Seattle Mariner pitcher headed there this year is Randy Johnson.
But you could win a lot of money on bar bets wagering with Mariner fans on who is the team’s all-time leader in wins. Stick a $20 bill in your pocket every time somebody answers that question with “The Big Unit.” In his 11 seasons in Seattle between 1996 and 2006, Jamie Moyer notched a record of 145 wins against 87 losses, and he is the only pitcher in team history to win 20 games in more than one season.
This is why on August 8th, Moyer will be inducted into the Mariners’ Hall of Fame, joining Randy Johnson as the only pitchers so honored.
Now, you can say whatever you want about Moyer’s chances to join Johnson in Cooperstown, it has been well-documented on Dubsism. Just click on “Jamie Moyer” in the tag cloud and you’ll see it for yourself. You can see the most interesting argument for Moyer’s Hall of Fame candidacy here, but at the end of the day, we still care more about what the readers of Dubsism think than we do about the self-appointed moralizers from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
