Moyer...

..dominates Braves

The Moyer-is-old angle never gets old because it can always be dissected in different ways. Someone from the Braves, for example, pointed out before the game that the first Atlanta hitter Moyer ever faced was Andres Thomas in a May 23, 1987 game at Wrigley Field.

Thomas is a year younger than Moyer, but he hasn't played in the major leagues in 20 years. Even better, Graig Nettles played for that Atlanta team, and he is now 65 years old.

After watching Moyer last night, I'm convinced of a theory I had about Halladay going to the Phils, in that the other pitchers who were mediocre in that starting rotation would start to step up their game if they could.

Moyer pitched beautifully, Hamels came out of whatever rut he was in and pitched nicely (not his best, and it was a losing game, but he did better than recent starts) and Kendrick did well last start.

Moyer just got an rbi on a bases loaded walk from Johan Santana. Of course, it was followed by a Shane Victorino grand slam. Two batters later after a Polanco single, Chase Utley hit a 2 run home run. Johan just gave up 8 runs with 2 outs.

Despite giving up 5 runs in 4 innings, looks as if 47 year old Jamie Moyer will pick up another win.

I'm looking at the box score from Moyer's first game, which he won. June 16th, 1986. Off the top of my head he has to be the last player remaining in the big leagues from when Reagan was in office.

The pitcher he beat that day? Steve Carlton.

The pitcher that saved the game for the Cubs? Lee Smith.

3 hall of famers in that game (Carlton, Schmidt, Sandberg).

Has Smoltz officially retired?

Sheffield debuted in 88, he may sign on with someone this year.

Some other players that made their debut in 1986 (same year as Moyer). This brought back some baseball card trading memories from my youth:
