Jamie Moyer went to the 1980 World Series parade as a fan.

He'd like to go this year as a player.

He can get them one step closer with a victory tonight in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Phil Sheridan explains how big Game 3 is. Moyer struggled in his last start against the Brewers in Game 3 of the NLDS, but he would like to take advantage of the opportunity presented him tonight at Dodger Stadium.

Beat the Dodgers tonight and suck the life out of them. Lose tonight and give the Dodgers hope.
