Myers Rehabs, Talks...Mentors?

Brett Myers made his firs rehab appearance on Thursday night. Nineteen pitches, three strikeouts, yada, yada, who gives a crap. What he said was way more interesting.

On delaying his rehab start:
"It was a freak accident, that is all I can really say about it. It’s something you don’t expect to happen and now you just try and be more cautious. Make sure your feet are under you before you take that next step. I wish it kind of hadn’t happened because it stirred up more stuff than it should have. Next time I will tell it straight because I just felt embarrassed about a grown man falling out of a car.”

Well color me confused. Didn't Randy Miller report on Wednesday that Myers was punched in the face during a bar fight? Called it the Adventure's of Pinocchio or something like that. I know a baseball player wouldn't lie. And I know a newspaper writer wouldn't just print rumors without fact or evidence to get people to read, that's what bloggers are for. So what the dealio?


On mentoring a young pitcher:
“He is one of our own, so why not help him."

The "him" Myers referred to was young righty Julian Sampson. Myers and Sampson apparently "worked on and talked pitching" prior to the game, according to a Yahoo! report.

Great, Brett Myers thinks he's Rich Dubee now. And Julian Sampson just dropped three places on the prospect rankings. Look out Phillies farmhands, no one is safe until Brett is back in the Big Show.

We all need to Pray the Giants don't get the Wild Card. Cause if they do we get to face Cain and Timmy twice each in a 5 game series.
That would not be good.

Weren't the Phillies looking at getting Oliver Perez this offseason?

Also, lol @ Pedro standing with the bat wondering what's going on.

Aaron said...

Pedro looks like Poop today

GM-Carson said...

Pedro does not look good at all today. Luckily Ollie Perez looked worse, much worse.

GM-Carson said...

I see Greg Dobbs has hit the DL and Miguel Cairo is back. Sadly enough, I'd like to see Cairo on the bench before Bruntlett.

Andrew said...

Ha, Bruntlett is 3 for 3!

This is some sick joke.

Dr. Steve said...

Why the hell did they build this stadium next to an airport?

New York is a joke.

GM-Carson said...

Bruntlett would have to have a hit in every at bat he has for the rest of the season to earn any respect from me.

Dr. Steve said...

The more I see of this ballpark the more I hate it. What a horrible thing to build new.

Dr. Steve said...

WTF did Bruntlett just do? Three straight errors, and a Triple Play!?

Dr. Steve said...

Two errors, my bad.

GM-Carson said...

That was a funky game. Brunt gets props for the triple play, saved Lidge.

Dr. Steve said...

Carson you pussy. Brunt CAUSED that situation with his errors. It's not like Lidge was the one messing up, getting groundballs.

GM-Carson said...

Wow, I got called a pussy. Damn!

It's alright though, I'll let it slide.

A triple play is exciting, and to end the game with the "W" in hand makes it all the better, regardless of the events leading up to it.

Aaron said...

Brunts gets NO PROPS for the triple play the ball was lined right at him, he got lucky.

Lidge actually pitched really well. He should have had a 1-2-3 inning. Ryan "Hippopotamus" Howard and Eric Sucklett choked hard core in the ninth.

Aaron said...

Man I complain a lot......
The Phillies are 21 games over 500 with a healthy lead in first place and are the defending WFC's.

I should really shut my yapper for a while.

Bob D said...

Bruntlet was getting scared with the Brunt watch as Cliff Lee was catching him in hits this year.

But yeah, boo him for errors or praise him for 3hits and a triple play?

Lidge should've had a 1-2-3 inning but errors and miscues hurt until the triple play
