Jamie Moyer and the Phillies have reached agreement on a deal that would keep the 46-year-old lefthander in Philadelphia through the 2010 season.
(From a Phillies news release): Left-hander Jamie Moyer has signed a two-year contract, Ruben Amaro, Jr. announced today. Moyer, 46, went 16-7 with a 3.71 ERA in 33 starts for the Phillies this past season, leading the team in wins. He allowed three runs or fewer in 14 straight starts, from June 6 through Aug. 21, becoming the first Phillie to do so since 1967. Moyer finished the season with 246 career wins, which is tied for 47th on Major League Baseball's all-time list. Among pitchers who were active at the end of the 2008 season, he ranks fifth. With the announced retirements of Greg Maddux and Mike Mussina, Moyer moves up to third on the active list.
