The Philadelphia Phillies lose Jamie Moyer for the year

The Phillies have lost 46-year old lefty starter/reliever Jamie Moyer for the season due to tears in his groin and abdomen that will require surgery. Moyer pitched in 30 games (25 starts) this season for the Phillies and he was 12-10 with a 4.94 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. It will be interesting to see if Moyer wins a job in the starting rotation next season as he was bumped out of it by Pedro Martinez. Moyer has pitched three seasons for the Phillies covering 96 games (91 starts) in which he is 42-29 with a 4.53 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP. I think part of the reason that Moyer was so upset about getting yanked from the starting rotation is that he might think he has a chance at getting 300 career wins. After all, he does have 258 wins in his career but time is running out for him.
