Your Jamie Moyer Update 4/30/2012 – Moyer Will Be Really Old When He Passes Cy Young

Last night marked Jamie Moyer’s 633rd career start. While that makes him the active leader in the category, that is by far not the only one. More on that in a bit.

As far as last night is concerned, Moyer faced the New York  Mets, and while he scattered four runs and 13 baserunners (11 hits, 2 walks) across 5 innings pitched, he came away with a No Decision as the game went into extra innings with the Mets prevailing 6-5 in 11 innings.

Despite last night’s performance, Moyer has been remarkably solid through his starts this season.  In 28 2/3 innings, Moyer has put up an ERA of 3.14 ERA, which considering he is pitching in Colorado with a 75-mph “fastball” is just short of a miracle.

Now, for today’s Jamie Moyer Fact:
