It's Jamie Moyer's Birthday - and I'm Pissed.

Recommended Posts

He's 58 today.  Just realized that I'm two years older than Jamie Moyer.  How the hell did that happen to me?  🙂

I remember when Moyer pitched a complete-game shutout against the Mets, in June of 1988.

The next day, the back page of the NY Daily News read "MOYER DESTROYER."

Was he older than you when he was playing and you've somehow passed him?

Jesse Orosco was two months older than me.   The day he retired was a very sad day.   I’m now at the point where there are major leaguers whose grandpas I saw play.

Amen there.

Is there a Ken Griffey third somewhere? I remember both his daddy and then son playing. LOL

I’d already been a fan for several years when Ken Griffey Sr. and Bobby Bonds were rookies.    Now their sons are long retired.

I thought you were pissed because he became a really, really good pitcher, right after he left the Orioles.

Twin paradox.  The effect of putting Minnesota Twin Nelson Cruz in a spaceship traveling near the speed of light, and when he returns he's still in his prime and all of his peers are long since retired.

I wish Craig Griffey amounted to something.

😛 I was reading down thru the thread before I searched for that song. Beat me to it Bob.

 

 

I'm only about 5 months older than Jamie [no middle name] Moyer.

I'm 36 and most of the ballplayers my age are retired.  Pretty soon every ballplayer will be younger than me.....  I've got to do something about this.  Does anybody know where The Fountain of Youth is?
