OT - Brett Myers Demoted To AAA

Since the Phightin' Phils were just in town and there was some good vitriol directed at Brett Myers here on LSB, I thought it would be relevant to share this:

If you've had a bad day, then maybe you'll feel better by reading about Brett Myers. According to MLB.com, the Phillies optioned the struggling righthander to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Because he has five-plus years in the majors, Myers had the option to reject the demotion. But he accepted it and hopes to get back on track after starting the season 3-9 with a 5.84 ERA.

I didn't realize that he was leading the majors with 24 HR allowed.

I was at the game on Friday night and I was shocked to see how off he was from the Brett Myers we've seen in the past. I remember he used to have filthy stuff on his fastball, a powerful slider and a nasty little curve to round out the arsenal. During his time pitching last Friday, I don't think he ever broke 92 on the Ballpark's radar gun. He worked most of the time in the 87-90 range.

And he's definitely a disciple of the David Wells school of physical fitness. Dude's getting big.
