Pitching coach Rich Dubee spoke to the media about the decision. "We think it’s the right way to go," Dubee said. "Jamie proved that he’s healthy. That was the biggest question coming into spring training, how he’d come back from the surgeries. He’s throwing the ball well. He’s functioning well. And again, this guy has a tremendous track record of being a winning pitcher."
There's no denying Moyer's track record for winning, as he is Major League Baseball's active leader in wins with 258.
Dubee also put a positive spin on things for Kendrick, looking at it as Kyle winning a spot on the roster, not necessarily losing the starting job.
Kendrick spoke about how the switch might effect his training routine. "My workouts maybe will change a little bit," Kendrick told reporters. "But my preparation shouldn’t change. My focus shouldn’t change. Workouts will have to change because you never know when you’re going to pitch."
Even the geniuses responsible for this sign aren't surprised by the Phils' rotation news
