Is this guy for real this year? Has he finally grown up?

Will he outperform people like Greinke, Sabathia, or Radke? :-?

His first 2 start numbers are almost unreal 8-o

I doubt it, but I picked him up today anyway. The most difficult pitching category to find on waivers is strikeouts, which, thus far, he has a plethora of. My gut tells me I'll be dropping him in a few weeks, but I thought the same thing last year when I nabbed Santana off waivers (not that I'm saying he has anywhere near that potential).

I would advise picking up Myers. He has a great strikeout to walk ratio and he might be at the age where pitchers mature, the same way that Peavy did last year. A few years of wondering if he would ever reach his potential and then does.

I included Myers in one of the players that I would advise picking up off waivers in my free agent market column.

Depends on who you have. If you have a borderline starter, drop him. But no way you should drop grienke, sabathia or radke for Myers. He definetly needs to prove himself before you cut him for guys with a good track record.

That's O.K. because when that time comes, he'll have already been packaged away. B-)
