Hybrid, I don't know what games your looking at, but Myers has been terrible. 10 hits in 5 innings is very, very bad. ER's don't tell the whole story. And you can't just take out 2 innings from the game and say he was OK in the other 4. It doesn't work like that. All pitchers would be good if you didn't count their bad innings.
Madson has been so good in the bullpen, I'd at least give him a shot. He has given up less hits (9) in his 7 appearances than Myers gave up in 2 different games; Florida (11) and St. Louis (10). Before today, Madson had pitched more innings than Myers, and he gave up 0 ER's, while Myers gave up 12 ER's. Today's start didn't help him any. He's a much bigger prospect than Myers, who has been very bad in his 3 seasons in the majors. His WHIP has been over 1.40 all 3 seasons, his BAA has been over .272 all 3 seasons, and this season is by far his worst so far. Why keep this guy in the rotation with one of the top young arms in the majors mowing down batters from the bullpen? Are you Brett Myers? That's the only explanation I can see.
