We're hours away from the first Tuesday of the month, so it must be time for "Moyer Monday".
Thanks to my partnership with the good folks over at The Moyer Foundation, I present to you this week's "Moyer Monday". It's a few hours later than I wanted it to be, but here we go!
Question: Jamie, how has the atmosphere in the clubhouse changed in light of this recent win streak and now the addition of Roy Oswalt?
Moyer: Everything is upbeat...has been all along. We’ve been playing better and on the right path. Oswalt is going to be a big help and everyone is excited for him to be aboard.
Question: What are some of your favorite keepsakes, baseball-related or not?
Moyer: Pitching rubber from World Series, ball from major wins like 1st, 50th, 100th, 150th, 200th and 250th. I also keep a uniform from every year that I pitch.
Question: Would you ever want to be a pitching coach?
Moyer: All doors are open for my future. I plan to continue to play, and as far as coaching...haven’t crossed that path yet.
Question: Are any of your children interested in following in your footsteps and becoming professional athletes?
Moyer: All of the children enjoy playing sports and are involved in playing sports...from our youngest, who are just having fun, to our oldest son Dillon who was drafted this year as a shortstop to the Twins. While he plans to pursue education right now and play at the college level for UC-Irvine this fall, playing professionally is a goal.
Question: Jamie, if you weren't a pitcher what would you be?
Moyer: Working outside. Maybe a career in landscaping.
