Jamie Moyer Plans Comeback Next Year

Former Phillie Jamie Moyer underwent Tommy John surgery this past offseason and is apparently feeling good enough that he is planning a comeback next season.

"I'm rehabbing right now and maybe try to make a comeback. I think I'm going to at least try," Moyer said.

The 48 year old was asked when he thinks it would be the right time to finally retire?

"I've always, always...it's a great question. I've had this asked to me numerous times throughout my career. Obviously I played up to last year and I was 48. People said when we won the World Series in 2008 ‘Oh this would be a great time for you to retire.' I'm like you know what I still feel like I can contribute. That's how I look at it. If I feel like I can contribute and someone is willing to offer me a job I know each and every day I have to go out there and earn that job. I don't want anybody to give me a job. If I'm able to come back next year I know I am not going to walk in the door and be handed a job. I've always looked at my job whether it has been a spring training invite or had a two-year contract or three-year contract I feel like I have to earn it each and every day. That's how I was raised. I think that is fair. I think it's real and that's how I try to raise our kids."
