Michael Bamberger: Time to give Jamie Moyer his due as he closes in on dubious record

Now that he's about to do it, now that Jamie Moyer will soon set the alltime record for home runs allowed, let's give the man the credit he's due. Moyer, the Phillies' ancient 47-year-old lefty, enters Tuesday's start against the Indians in Philadelphia having allowed 504 home runs in his career, just one shy of the record held by another Philadelphia legend, Robin Roberts. Do you know what kind of career you have to have to give up that many home runs? The longevity it requires? Moyer has been working toward this record since 1986. Right below him on the list are Ferguson Jenkins (484), Phil Niekro (482) and Don Sutton (472). Nice rotation.
