Jamie Moyer's 26 seasons in the MLB have taken him many places, from Chicago to Seattle and in between, now playing for a spot in Philly. Seattle Times' Larry Stone talked to Moyer about his long career:
CLEARWATER, Fla. - It has been 26 years since Jamie Moyer reported to his first spring-training camp, and 19 years since the Cubs became the third team to release him, gently suggesting he become a minor-league pitching coach.
Check that - an assistant minor-league pitching coach.
It has been nearly 14 years since the Mariners sent Darren Bragg to Boston in exchange for Moyer, one of their best trades ever. Nine years since he pitched on Seattle's 116-win juggernaut, seven years since he made his first and only All-Star team at the age of 40, and three-plus years since the M's decided it was time for a younger arm in the rotation.
They sent Moyer on to Philadelphia, where rings, adulation, victories and even a multiyear contract ensued.
