Jamie was just showing that whippersnapper Halladay how a pitcher should pay tribute to Robin Roberts. It helps that Moyer and Roberts were college roommates.

phark yeah Philadelphia!

Damn the braves suck. What is that 4 hits in the last two games?
 
2010-05-08 12:15:14 AM  
Predictable, tired, unfunny "off my lawn" headline about Moyer is predictable, tired and unfunny.

Personally, I think it's the stirrups.
 
2010-05-08 12:20:01 AM  
I love how shiatty the Braves are this season.

I am 99.7% positive I could throw a four hitter against the Braves.

Somehow I think Roy will be the one to break Jamie's record... that guy is a machine...
 
2010-05-08 12:26:21 AM  
Nicely done, Mr. Moyer. Now just do this again without those two hits and become the oldest person to get a no-hitter and a perfect game and I'll buy you a month of TotalFark.
 
2010-05-08 12:27:09 AM  
Wow, Moyer has had an incredible career... and his numbers would be even better if he hadn't lost a big chunk of his prime to WWII.
 
2010-05-08 12:27:25 AM  
Time to fire Terry NOW. You know it's a bad scene when 8 of your last 18 homeruns are from your G__DAMN rookie hitter in the 7th spot. Do it now before Heyward becomes the next Francoeur after getting mind farked by this guy.

/Sorry Terry, loved you in the day but you suck

Yep. But only cause I knew that an "off my lawn" would go green.

Ah, well. Sour grapes.

Jamie Moyer is a great pitcher and a class act. I was yelling at my TV before the 9th for Charlie to let him finish. Good jorb, old man.

There is something to be said for a manager that keeps that hitter in the seven hole. Kind of like keeping a .215-.220 Andruw Jones in the clean up spot to kill rallies for a couple of seasons.

Bobby is a terrible decision making manager. You'd have at least one World Series title too if you had the pitching staff he did in the 90's...Hell, you'd probably have 2 or 3.
 
2010-05-08 12:31:18 AM  
Hey, I like the fact that the Phillies have as many World Series rings in their three straight division wins as the Braves won during their 14 straight.

Mainly because I farking hate the Braves.
 
2010-05-08 12:32:32 AM  
The Mariners sure could use him now.

I still like Bobby just for the fact the old man will still raise hell with the umps, but you are correct. He's stubborn as an old goat and I can't even count the times I have been watching the Braves begging for a pitching change (during a game when the shiat hits the fan and he STILL LETS THE GUY FARK IT UP WORSE) or at least a rotation shake up.

What stinks was that we used to be able to say that Bobby can't manage playoffs, now I don't know if he can manage to stay awake.

He's had some memorable plate appearances the past few games at any rate.

Well it was the braves and they were being taught by terry pendelton so its not entirely unexpected.


God please take terry, hes killing us.
 
2010-05-08 01:02:15 AM  
Isn't Terry supposed to take over for Bobby Cox when he retires? :)
 
2010-05-08 01:09:58 AM  
I really wish the Mariners could do something with Moyer like they did with Griffey and bring him home to end his career. That would be awesome. Highly unlikely, but awesome.

(And yeah I know he didn't start his career with the M's, but he was a key part of our best pitching rotation in the modern era and it'd be awesome to see him at Safeco.)

Also: Best commercial ever. (new window)

Hey, as long as he hires a real hitter to coach them, fine.

I loved terry's playing style, he just sucks as a hitting coach, his RISP average bears that out
 
2010-05-08 01:16:38 AM  
My preseason prediction had the Braves winning the wild card due to "an excellent pitching staff" and "a decent enough lineup".

"Decent" is becoming extremely generous.

It would be nice. I saw Moyer a few times when the M's visited the Angels. He was always interesting to watch. He's one of those guys you learn to appreciate over time. And with Moyer, you get plenty of time.

I'd prefer to see it in a Jays uniform.

I'll live with him winning the WS in a Phillies one though, guy deserves it.

cornan: I really wish the Mariners could do something with Moyer like they did with Griffey and bring him home to end his career.

Um, Moyer grew up about an hour outside of Philadelphia. I'd say he's already in place to finish his career at home, where he got his start playing Little League.

Whereas Griffey grew up in Tacoma?

I've been trying to find the one where they put a gun on Moyer that shows his speed in kilometers instead of MPH. My google-fu fails me.

How much you wanna bet he can throw it over them mountains?

/braves suck

I need to find the thread from a few months back where some retard tried to argue with me that McLouth was a great player, Glaus wasn't washed up, and Heyward wasn't ready. If you are reading this, how does it feel to choke on your words?
 
2010-05-08 02:42:03 AM  
Have the Braves scored a run yet this season? Every time I read a story about them, it's about them getting no-hit or shut out.
 
2010-05-08 03:07:18 AM  
This is a team that many picked to win the wild card.

I could see McLouth being a killer lead off man the day he leaves the Braves. That's how it works here in Atlanta. AIN'T THAT RIGHT KELLY JOHNSON

WTFdoesitmatter: Glaus wasn't washed up,

Still rather would have kept Glaus over Dallas MacPherson. Even at his most washed up.

I highly doubt it. He is injury prone, cannot hit for average (career .257 hitter) and has had a grand total of 1 above average season. He made the All-Star Team as the token representative from Pittsburgh that year (2008), which is the baseball equivalent of being the best-smelling turd in the septic tank. McLouth is a one-year wonder, and not even that good of one. That should mean once his contract is up, some team will probably take a 1-2 year, low-risk contract on him, and he will probably be out of baseball after.

Moyer grew up a Phillies fan somewhere out in the 'burbs. As far as a homecoming goes, I think this is basically it.

I am also getting a kick out of the Braves sucking. It is about damn time they had a turn downstairs.

/Go Phils!
 
2010-05-08 08:56:24 AM  
How about the fact that the Braves have played the Phillies 4 times this season, and have yet to score a run off of a Phillies starting pitcher (32 IP)?

2010-05-08 09:00:59 AM  
Jamie Moyer has 262 wins. If he doesn't break down or lose his command, he could probably pitch until he's 50 and have an outside shot at 300 wins. That'd be incredible.
