What are some thoughts on this dude? I traded for him, since I had excess closers. I figure his upside is worth taking a gamble on.

I think he's pretty good...definetely lots of potential...

I traded him for aubrey huff tho because my first baseman is fred mcgriff, and paul konerko...both of whom are making me cry now....

not to mention roberto alomar at second

or bernie williams being injured...

He's a solid pitcher. I wouldn't want a whole staff of Brett Myers', but having him as 4th or 5th SP is a nice option. I'd rather have a young guy with upside than a vet that has been mediocre his whole career.

His numbers so far are great, I'm always waiting for the rookie start where he gives up 5 in 3 innings but so far he has been one of my most stable pitchers. I said so far twice, Im a pessimist

Hey, YankFan

As a Phillies fan, I saw him pitch in a number of games late last season. He walked way too many guys and struck way out too few. For that reason, I wasn't real high on him entering the season.

Well, he seems to have learned from his mistakes. He seems to be a much smarter pitcher this year.

He does get rattled a little easier than you'd hope -- in fact, he lost his composure a bit in yesterday's game v. Montreal. He was able to work through it yesterday, but young pitchers have to learn to deal w/ bad calls, errors, etc. He's still learning.

He's got great stuff, though. He's definitely worth a pickup in keeper leagues and in 10-team non-keeper leagues.

I saw him pitch here in San Diego ( and you know I had good seats-if you know what I mean) He has very, as we say here, sick stuff dude. I have him on my squad and he has been tough. He has helped me in k's,era, and whip, and w's. I would a take a full pitching staff of Myers. Hopefully, he will not wear down the second half.
