What are your opinions on Brett. Will he be an average pitcher this year or do you think he might have a pretty big year (16-18 wins or so)

Thanks in advance

The name is d. y'all and i don't play
And i can rock a block party 'til your hair turns grey
So, what you sayin'? i explode on site
I'm like jimmy walker i'm dynomite
And now i'd like to pass the mic
To adrock c'mon and do anything you like


...but to get to your question, I think he is a good end of the draft pickup, 16-18 might be a stretch but like alot of opther pitchers of his caliber the potential is certainly there

I've got the light bulb flashing on the top of my head
Never wake up on the wrong side of the bed
You're an idea man not a yes man
With a point to make you're bound to take a stand
'Cause I'm Pete the Puma, Minnie the Moocher
Got every type of flavor or style that will suit ya
You know the bass is real fat because it's gotta be like that
A snare on the funky tip and a taste of the high hat


brett myers will do well in the first couple months, but will absolutely slay them in the second half. he's got some good teachers around him in millwood, padilla, milton and wolf...and a great offense and bullpen to garauntee some Ws.

yeah, yes...

I did it like this
I did it like that
I did it with a whiffle ball bat

I like drafting players who will surprise and then the following year become sought after. Myers will be one of those players. Next year he will be drafted within the first 6 rounds. I see 17-18W 185K - 3.85era...easily, especially pitching in the 5 spot.

---If he can out up numbers like that, he would be the steal of alot of drafts. Considering he isn't getting picked up til the very end.

Myers really showed me something last year. If he can take another step forward, and there's no reason to think he won't, he'll be a stud. As far as young up and comers go, I've got him ranked right behind Jake Peavy and Carlos Zambrano.

So zenboy....

What happens when you reach enlightenment?

I think Myers is a good sleeper. I think 16-18 wins might be too much to ask for. 12-14 seems more reasonable with an era around 4.

well it was his first full season in the majors, and he threw pretty much 200 IP. my guess would be he just got worn done and didn't have the endurance his first year.

1) that's easy, THE CUBS WIN THE SERIES!!! ok, sorry, I couldnt' resist...

2) I'm not sure about Myers, I had him last year and had a very hard time guessing which teams he'd smoke. He'd toss a great game, I'd stick him in and he'd get killed so back to the bench and another great game. Some may have been my problem but he just did not work out. An ok performance every week is probably better for H2H than a good/ bad roller coaster!

He's still on the waiver wire though, certainly worth keeping an eye on...
