Start Brett Myers @ Colorado tomorrow?

Postby ironmanjrod » Mon Aug 04, 2003 2:22 pm

I'm leaning towards keeping Myers out of my rotation on Tuesday. Is Colorado to much of a hitters park for Myers?

My opinion on the matter is that you bench everyone at Coors, unless they are super-stud pitchers. Brett Myers is good, but he's not in that echelon of players just yet. Keep him on the bench.

Join the party and bench him. I'm not starting Millwood at Coors either.

From Fantistics.com:

Aug. 5:

Brett Myers is tonight’s starter for the Phillies against the Rockies. He is 5-0 in his last 9 starts and hasn’t lost since June 11th against the Angels. Our Pitching Intelligence shows us Myers posting a QS in 5 of his last 6 starts, with above-average strikeout and walk rates in 6 of his last 7 outings. He has been giving up some hits however, with a higher-than-average hit rate in 5 of his last 7 starts. But his refusal to issue a walk has helped keep that in check. Brett gave up three walks in his one bad start since June 28th on July 25 and around that he’s issued just 2 walks in 39 IP. He finished July at 3-0 with a 3.65 ERA despite allowing a .295 OBA. There’s a double spike here to be concerned about. His July command (issuing only 5 walks), came out of nowhere after allowing 12 walks in April, 14 in May and 13 in June. And his OBA is on an upward climb (.228 in April, 1.83 in May, 2.57 in June and .297 in July). Maybe Joe Kerrigan is starting to install some consistency in this young stud (better zone command), or maybe he’s getting mentally tired (higher OBA), or maybe both…We’ll find out in his next 5-7 starts. He threw 197 IP last year between AAA and the majors, a career high, so maybe he’s wearing down just a bit. As long as that walk rate stays down, he’ll be fine (assuming he checks his hit rate at some reasonable point). But if that walk rate comes up and his hit rate continues to rise, there will be issues. Enjoy the ride for now.
