Jamie Moyer interviewed for the Phillies’ announcer gig

15 Comments

Brad Lidge pulled himself out of the running to replace Gary Matthews as the Phillies’ television analyst and now Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that Jamie Moyer interviewed for the job.

According to Zolecki the “top candidates” for the gig are Moyer, Mitch Williams, Mickey Morandini, and Kevin Stocker. Doug Glanville apparently removed himself from consideration, like Lidge.

I guess this probably means Moyer has officially given up on a comeback at age 51, which makes me a little bit sad.

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier entered Tuesday night’s action having hit safely in all 17 games this season and in 24 games consecutively dating back to last season. Sadly for him and for the Twins, that streak ended with an 0-for-4 performance against the Yankees.

Dozier grounded out in the first inning, flied out in the third, grounded out in the sixth, and grounded out again in the eighth.

Despite his streak ending, Dozier still has good numbers on the year. He’s hitting .291/.356/.494 with four home runs, 10 RBI, and 15 runs scored in 87 plate appearances.
