No. 7: Jaime Moyer
Moyer is easily one of the most beloved players from the world championship team from 2008 as he was well into his 40s and still coming up big in even bigger moments.
He joined the Phillies midway through the 2006 season and struggled in his first full season with the Phils in 2007, but bounced back in 2008.
Moyer finished with a 16-7 record and an ERA below four in the regular season, but Phillies fans remember Moyer more for his performance in Game 3 of the 2008 World Series against the Rays.
In that pivotal Game 3, Moyer went six and a third innings, allowing three runs and coming away with a no decision. However, fans will remember that the Phillies came away with the walk-off win to take a critical 2-1 advantage in the series.
After that 2008 season, Moyer would pitch two more seasons with the Phillies and became one of the symbols of the team’s run of dominance throughout the back half of that decade.
Next up we’ll look at another player that is synonymous with the 2008 World Series team.
