267 lifetime wins w/a 4.24 lifetime ERA. VERY odd line. I wonder if any other pitcher in the history of baseball has over 200 wins and an ERA of over 4. My guess is, no.

I do hope he makes it though; seems like a good guy.

According to BBref, Moyer is in the 200-win, 4+ ERA club along with David Wells (239, 4.13), Kenny Rogers (219, 4.27), Earl Whitehill (218, 4.36) and Tim Wakefield (200, 4.41). Moyer's 267 wins are, by far, the most of a pitcher with a career ERA over 4.

Hopefully, he'll pitch long enough to last as long as Satchel Paige did in professional baseball, which if I'm not mistaken was a LONG time.

I think he should retire and then appear in a few a games under odd circumstances on uninspiring Phillies teams in the future.

I call it "The Minnie Minoso Phenomenon".

The Phillies would make hundreds HUNDREDS of dollars in ticket sales! :redneck

He's living proof that that if you're left handed and throw strikes someone will always be interested in you.

Amen. The list of less than stellar pitchers who stuck around for years just because they are left handed is endless.

I should really teach my nephew to throw left-handed.

Well, he did have a pretty good run there for quite a few years.

He did but he was almost out of baseball in 1991 at age 28 too.

I'm thinking Gordie Howe played until he was 52, even more astounding in a much rougher game.

But my hates off to the ol' boy. He's a warrior in a world of wimps
