JAMIE MOYER wanted to make it clear. So clear that he said it twice: "I'm not retired. I'm not retired," he said Wednesday at a news conference at the American Century Celebrity Golf Tournament at Lake Tahoe, Nev. "I'm just kind of laying in the weeds and just trying to figure out what's going on. " The 49-year-old Moyer last pitched in the majors for the Rockies, where on May 16 he became the oldest pitcher to ever record a win in a 6-1 victory...

CLEARWATER, Fla. - There is something of the epic gesture in what Jamie Moyer did here yesterday, in what the 47-year-old pitcher has been doing here for a month. It would be so much easier if Moyer took note of the birth date on his driver's license, did the math, and retired. Easier for the Phillies, who could then plug Kyle Kendrick into their starting rotation, and easier for Moyer himself. He has labored long and hard to recover from a painful abdominal injury, a blood infection and knee surgery - all in an effort to prolong a career that already defies probability.

  The lefthanded pitcher whose once-record win total Jamie Moyer tied last night had a resumé that contained considerably more than those 266 victories.  While Moyer, the Phillies' 47-year-old lefthander, is one of baseball's most intriguing figures, his story reads like a mundane child's tale when compared to the novel that was Eppa Rixey's life.   Rixey was the son of a wealthy Virginia banker, the nephew of the nation's surgeon general. At 6-foot-5, when he arrived in Philadelphia in 1912, he was the game's tallest player.

BERT BLYLEVEN, the Flinging Dutchman, missed Cooperstown last winter by five votes. It was his 13th chance to nail the required 75 percent of the BBWAA vote. He got 74.2. So, the author of a 287-250 record over a 22-year career should be on the Hall of Fame podium next summer. It is a game of inches - and fractions. In the latest chapter of his 24-season pursuit of Methuselah and title of oldest pitcher to ever (add your own category), Jamie Moyer left the mound Sunday after working a scoreless seventh inning against the Blue Jays, soon to be 9-6. He left behind 4,005 innings pitched and more home runs, 506, than any man who ever hung a curve or grooved a fastball to Chris Wheeler's Land of Middle In. His 267-201 record is a body of work in progress.

When the Seattle Mariners are introduced before Game 1 of the American League Championship Series this afternoon at Safeco Field, the hometown fans are likely to give Jamie Moyer one of the loudest ovations of all. Hey, the guy deserves it. Without Moyer, the Mariners might be home booking tee times. Without Moyer, they might have gone down in history as that team that churned out 116 wins but flopped in the first round of the playoffs. Moyer helped save the Mariners from a division-series death by beating the Cleveland Indians in Game 2 and then again in Game 5. Both of those wins came in pressure situations.

Jamie Moyer did everything right last night. He mixed pitches, changed speeds, worked pitches in and out and up and down. He baffled. He baffled the Phillies and led the Seattle Mariners to a 4-0 victory at Veterans Stadium. "He can pitch," Phillies manager Larry Bowa said. "If you look up the definition of a pitcher, you'll see his picture. " The pitcher grew up a Phillies fan, starred at Souderton High and St. Joseph's University, and earned his first major-league victory by beating the Phillies' Steve Carlton in 1986.

A steaming cup of Starbucks in one hand and the steering wheel in the other, Jamie Moyer eases his SUV to the side of the road and becomes a tour guide. The afternoon is cold and clear, the sun reflecting off Puget Sound. Moyer points to his right at the snowcapped Olympic Mountains, then nods to his left, where Mount Rainier rises spectacularly above the city skyline. This is the perfect backdrop for a story about Moyer's career and all the good works that have come from it. This is the place where it all came together for him, where he finally became the pitcher he always knew he could be, where he was a mainstay in the Seattle Mariners' rotation for 10 years, loving every minute of it. And, yet, as the caffeine kicks in, all Moyer talks about is the six weeks he spent with the Phillies last season and how they made him feel, well, like a kid again.

Think of the people with whom Jamie Moyer has played baseball: Cal Ripken Jr. Andre Dawson. Nolan Ryan. Ken Griffey Jr. Ryan Howard. Impressive. Still, the list of players he has pitched against is even more impressive. T. Scott Brandon from Port Angeles, Wash., put together a lineup of Hall of Fame players who have faced Moyer. Thanks to Brandon, we took it a step further. We asked Moyer about each of those Hall of Famers. Because we organized the lineup by position, we designated three of them as pinch-hitters.

The losses have piled up quickly, and they are starting to become difficult to count. That's not a good sign. "What have we lost? Three in a row? Four in a row? Something like that," Jamie Moyer said last night after the Phillies' 5-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics at McAfee Coliseum. Actually, it's six in a row. "The day off felt like a loss, too," he said. The Phillies are searching for somebody ? anybody ? to step up and stop the madness. It looked as if Moyer might be that man last night.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The look was remarkably familiar. Cliff Lee sat in front of his locker stall yesterday afternoon while his teammates took on the Detroit Tigers outside the clubhouse doors. He was in uniform, but in no position to help out. He spoke with an uncertain voice, looked ahead with eyes unsure of what the future held for him in the game he's played, in one way or another, for 3 decades. "It's not a good sign, obviously," Lee said of the same injury that limited him to 13 starts in 2014 returning before he even could begin 2015.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Since the Phillies completed their second consecutive 89-loss season in September, the whispers of clubhouse discontent grew louder with each passing month. Manager Ryne Sandberg acknowledged last month there were issues, and veteran outfielder Domonic Brown brought it up on Monday. Yesterday, the first day of full-squad workouts in Clearwater, the second-year manager did what all major league managers do before the official start of a season. He gathered the team in the clubhouse for a meeting at 9:45 a.m. and delivered a speech about what he expects this spring and summer.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Former major-league catcher Ben Davis, a Malvern Prep graduate and West Chester resident, will join the Phillies' broadcast team this season as the third member in the booth, Comcast SportsNet announced Thursday. Davis and second-year broadcaster Matt Stairs will provide color commentary alongside play-by-play man Tom McCarthy. Davis replaces Jamie Moyer, who opted not to return for a second season in order to spend more time with his family on the West Coast. The other finalist for the job, former Phillies shortstop Kevin Stocker, turned down the position, several sources told The Inquirer.

Comcast SportsNet swung and missed last year in its first attempt to reconfigure its booth for Phillies telecasts. After clumsily disposing of Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews, the suits at Comcast decided upon Jamie Moyer and Matt Stairs, two members of the 2008 World Series championship team, as their replacements. Brian Monihan, the Comcast SportsNet president, never provided a public explanation as to why he thought the change needed to be made, but he did say, "I hope these guys have very long careers and are successful together.

Kyle Kendrick, who pitched in 226 games for the Phillies over the last eight seasons, agreed Tuesday to a contract with the Colorado Rockies, according to several media reports. The 30-year-old righthander and first-time free agent reportedly will pitch on a one-year deal worth $5.5 million in base salary. The deal is a significant pay cut for the veteran, who made $7.7 million last season. Kendrick is coming off a season in which he recorded a 4.61 ERA over 32 starts. He surrendered a whopping 25 home runs (four fewer than the major-league lead)

Moyer lives in California, and according to a CSNphilly.com report, decided that living on the West Coast and working primarily on the East Coast was the deciding factor.

Moyer, 52, a Souderton native and Saint Joseph's University product who makes a home on the West Coast, cited wanting to spend more time with his family.

If the front office and baseball administration hierarchy of the Phillies organization has any fear of a major upheaval following the team's second straight 73-win season, that fear certainly won't be realized at the hands of acting president Pat Gillick, a baseball lifer so comfortable riding the ebb and flood of the game's tides that he earned the nickname Stand Pat. And as much as fans might hope otherwise, there is also no indication that someone...
