100 Greatest Phillies: 92 – Jamie Moyer

Jamie Moyer
Starting Pitcher
2006-present

Career w/Phillies: 447 IP / 35-21 / 4.33 ERA / 282 K

At age 43, Jamie Moyer arrived in Philadelphia. He began his career 20 years before — the kid from Sellersville started opposite Steve Carlton, as his Cubs played his beloved Phils. After that he went to Arlington, Saint Louis, Baltimore, Boston and Seattle, living highs and lows before settling in as a reliable pitcher, a gun-slinger of 80 mph fastballs and 70 mph curves. He arrived home during a stretch run in 2006, stayed on to record a 14-12 mark in 2007, then showed consistency with a strong 2008 — 16-7, 3.71 ERA. Moyer started game three of the 2008 World Series, getting a no-decision, but pitching very strong against a hungry Tampa Bay lineup. The memorable moment of that game: Moyer diving and flipping, simutaneously, to make a play at first base. And he did all of that while wildly sick.

Comment: A sentimental choice, Moyer deserves to be on the list because he’s been good more than 80 percent of the time. His numbers might not stand out, but he’s been the most consistent member of the Phillies since 2006. Truly a legend in his home.
