Although the Sabremetrics of his increased K rate make him look very tempting to be that guy this year, I don't think there are any guarantees.
The scary thing is that he hasn't improved his BB/9. His K/9 and K/BB are better b/c of the increased K's, but when Sheets broke out last year he walked just 32 in 237 innnings. If Myers throws 237 innings at his current clip, he'll walk over 60.
Not saying it won't happen... just saying it's a little premature to declare it.
If he walks around 60 guys this year that wouldn't be shabbt at all. That is 2 guys a game, which isn't bad. If he continues to K the amount he is, then those walks become even more tolerable.
