I always enjoy nights when 47-year-old Jamie Moyer starts for the Philadelphia Phillies.
I rarely get to see the games, but the steady stream of Tweets highlighting #JamieMoyerfacts is enough to keep one entertained for hours.
Obviously, someone else enjoyed them too. Well, enough to make a blog about it. Joke quality isn’t promised if you follow the link. You’ve been warned.
I recommend following it on Twitter during a start for the good stuff, but here are a few of the funnier fake facts from the blog:
-- Jamie Moyer’s career as a pitcher really took off once his infielders were allowed to wear gloves.
-- When Jamie Moyer made his debut, he saw Angel Berroa and said, “Who’s that old guy?”
-- Moyer still doesn’t believe the ’18 Sox were on the take. He dominated them in big spots all season.
-- Moyer is the only active pitcher who struck out Honus Wagner
