Good for him, as I enjoyed watching him pitch for the Phillies.

God bless him. He pitched in his first game on my ninth birthday.

I want him pitchng into his mid 50's and getting 300 wins.

Total Uni-geek talk here. If he's still on the team mid-season after he turns 50, he'll be the oldest active player to wear his age as his uniform number: 50.

I was 11 when he started his first game! And now I'm approaching 40!

This is awesome. I can see Buerhle lasting this long if he wanted to.

Fantastic! I'd love to see him get three hundred wins. He and Omar Vizquel are now the last active players to have played at Old Comiskey.

If Jamie Moyer had been on the inaugural 1993 Rockies team, he would have been the oldest pitcher in their rotation

I love it. I hope he wins 15 games.

Holy ****! Just read on his Wiki page that his major league debut was June 16, 1986.

Exactly one month after the day I was born.

So this man has been pitching in the big leagues almost as long as I've been alive.

a local writer was dishing out the Moyer facts:

Obviously, only player alive when JFK was President.
Only 6 degrees of teammates separate him from Cy Young
over 8% of all batters in MLB history have faced him
He was in Tiger system in 1992 but considered too old to be a prospect so they didn't bring him up. Tigers needed pitchers bad at at the time.
