I go back and forth on Brett Myers. I’ve met the guy a couple of times, and he was decent, cordial, and didn’t come off as a prick — which he certainly can sometimes in the media. He can be a tough pitcher when he’s healthy and focused, but he has had injury issues the past few years and, at times, it appears his emotions get in the way of his talent. When the Phillies decided to let him walk in free agency, it didn’t really register with me. And I certainly didn’t have much of a desire to see him end up with the Mets.
“I wanted to go back to Philadelphia, but they didn’t show an interest, they had other obligations, which is fine with me,” Myers said. He then promised to “stick it” to the Phillies every time he faces them.
