Myers hurt.... but for how long?

Postby jtbarr » Thu May 24, 2007 10:05 am

STATS: Myers left Wednesday's game against Florida in the ninth inning with a strained right shoulder, and the team said he may return home Thursday for further examination.

Advice: Myers sat in the clubhouse after the game with ice on his shoulder and said he hoped to be sidelined only a couple of days. It's uncertain who would fill the closer's role for the Phillies if Myers has to miss any time. Tom Gordon remains on the disabled list with a rotator cuff strain.

there isn't much clarity on it yet. i heard from people who were watching the game that it looked pretty bad, but maybe he got lucky and will only miss a few games. if he's sidelined for a while, and gordon comes back healthy, he gets the role back - if both are shelved, it will probably go to madson, and then geary after that...

''It should be all right,'' said Myers, who wore an ice pack on his right shoulder after the game. ''I don't think it popped or tore. If it did, I wouldn't have any strength in it, but I have strength in it.''

Nah, he can still "kiss" her with his left fist, she won't bruise as bad.

He killed my era this week....I was hoping I would salvage at least a win out of the ordeal....but as it turned out someone else got the win and someone else got the save.
