Myers

Postby PavanoAllstars » Sun Apr 27, 2008 2:44 pm

I'm starting to get concerned, he has 4 bad starts, two good ones, getting smacked around by the pirates today (at least I had McLouth in my line up...) Manuel says his fast ball has been hovering around 88-90, inconsistent location... reason to be concerned?

what do you attribute his stumbling at the gate to then? Bad luck? Rusty after returning from the bull pen?

He was just dropped in my 10 team league. Of course I am putting in my waiver claim for him.

Not everything needs to be attributed to something. He started slow last year as well. Was that because he was moved from the bullpen to the rotation? Give him time.

I guess you can say that after you've only seen him start one game and it happens to be a bad outing.

I cut Myers. He was never good. EVER. He had one ok year, with a below 4.00 era, and everyone goes googley over him. He's not worth the 2 months it takes him to pick it up. His only good outings have been against crappy teams, and even trhen, they werten't too good. I may dd him later in the year, as I'm sure no one' going to bother picking him up in my league.

Here's the quote that bothered me from CharlIe Manuel: "He is always (throwing) 91 to 95," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said of his starter."Most of the time he topped out at 93, 94. There's a big difference. He's throwing curves right now. His fastball is hanging around 85, 86, 87, and topped out today at 89, from what I was watching. That's not his good fastball."

It seems without his fastball he's in trouble... so he's going to be benched until his fastball's back
