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.
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.
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.
As I Develop The Awakening Mind I Praise The Buddha As They Shine
I Bow Before You As I Travel My Path To Join Your Ranks,
I Make My Full Time Task
For The Sake Of All Beings I Seek
The Enlighted Mind That I Know I'll Reap
Respect To Shantideva And All The Others
Who Brought Down The Darma For Sisters And Brothers
I Give Thanks For This World As A Place To Learn
And For This Human Body That I Know I've Earned
And My Deepest Thanks To All Sentient Beings
For Without Them There Would Be No Place To Learn What I'm Seeing
There's Nothing Here That's Not Been Said Before
But I Put It Down Now So I'll Be Sure
To Solidify My Own Views And I'll Be Glad If It Helps
Anyone Else Out Too
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.
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...
