Myers Pitches (Finally)


Rollins419.JPGBrett Myers
made his way to the mound safely today in Dunedin, Fla., where he pitched for the first time since May.

In one inning for Single-A Clearwater, he allowed two singles and struck out three.

His fastball sat at 92 mph.

The Phillies said it is undetermined when Myers will pitch next.

Charlie Manuel had some things to say about the NL East race before tonight’s game.

“As far as our division, when I look at it, I think we’re the best team in our division,” he said. “If we can’t do it, that’s our fault. I think we have the talent, and now we have the starting pitching. If we get our bullpen straightened out a little bit, we should be able to not only win our division, but win in the playoffs.”

Jimmy Rollins unveiled a new billboard for Boys & Girls Clubs today. The photo is Rollins when he was eight years old. I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t see the resemblance at all.

92 mph is great news. Can’t wait to have Myers in the pen.

The smile. A dead giveaway.

“Brett Myers made his way to the mound safely.”
“I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t see the resemblance at all.”

Zo…….You are soooo funny!!!

Todd: here’s something to check out–when was the last time phillies pitchers had two hits in 3 straight games?

Todd, if you can’t see J-Roll in that picture it is only because you either do not have your glasses on or your prescription needs to be changed or you are blind. But my gut feeling is that in attempting to gain a cheap laugh, you detract from J-Roll’s effort. Emphasis is shifted from reality to snark. And, to J-Roll, thank you for your service.

Hey mjandwalt, i’m going to take a shot in the dark here and say you’re not a regular reader. if you were you would know by now that Zo tends to use this little thing we call “sarcasm” to liven up the mood. my 2yr old neice and nephew would know that’s Jimmy and the fact that Zo posted that picture just shows he cares and wants us (the real readers) to see Jimmy’s efforts. why don’t you lighten up a little.

whoops, that comment was to pherrisphain not mjandwalt.

dmrock20…….Funny, if we compared Johnsons here in the number of posts, mine would be bigger than yours (sarcasm to lighten up the mood which I am sure you can appreciate).

Relax, pherrisphan. Even Jimmy was joking about the picture during yesterday’s unveiling. I hardly think a joke about how Rollins still looks the same detracts from his work with Boys & Girls Clubs.

Can’t we all just get along? The Zo Zone has been “truth” free for a while now. It’s a shame to start animosity.

Now, let’s go to Flushing Meadows and pull a 4-game sweep from the mutts.

Yes, thank you Zo. As for you pherrisphain, there is a difference between a little joke (such as Zo made), and making an insult veiled as sarcasm, which you did. So just relax. Let’s focus on the good things, shall we? We swept the D-backs and have the Mutts next. I think we should take at least 3-4 from the Mutts, especially since we miss Santana (he pitched last night). Plus this weekend the Braves and Fish get to beat up on each other, so if we can just keep winning, we should gain some ground on the 2nd place team. And don’t look now, but we aren’t that far away from having the best record in the NL either. :)

Don’t worry about it Todd. Anything outside of pherrisphain’s myopic worldview is considered snark. The guy has no sense of humor whatsoever. Sarcasm doiesn’t always translate well in the written word, but this guy takes it to another level.

Three strikeouts and two hits in one inning? Sounds like Mitchypoo redux.

Hahaha I only comment when it’s absolutely necessary. In this case it was because you were acting nutty.

Todd, it is very nice to know that Jimmy was joking about it. How was I to know this from what you posted? You only get to make a first impression once.

phan52 ….I have been refraining from saying this for a while so as as not to roil a community which comes here to enjoy the accomplishments of the Phillies. If anyone has myopia it is you with your incessant references to some obscure statistics. Your failure to show the same restraint leads me tell you the truth, you are a blowhard.

LOL!! That’s rich, pherrisphain. You really don’t want the community here to vote on who is the blowhard.

pherrisphain, Phan52 is right. You definitely don’t want posters to put that to as vote!

As for the billboard picture, if it wasn’t Jimmy, it had to be his illegitimate kid…… I hope that wasn’t tooo harsh for you pherrisphain. lol

Nah, let’s vote…LOL!
Put me down for one for Pherrisphain. Man he/ she almost makes me miss Truth. Almost.
That was sarcasm, in case you didn’t get it in your first impression.

Todd, my apologies. I did not pick up on the tongue-in-cheek tenor of your writing.

pherrisphain, the tone of your writing is critical, judgemental, and self-glorifying. If anyone else’s name had been attached to those comments about Todd, nothing would have happened. You skulk about on the Phillies boards waiting for some unsuspecting poster to pounce on. When you are not attacking anyone, you have made some excellent posts. I always read your stuff, regardless. But you have to know everyone probably hates you. You can attack back. OR you can change the way you post your disagreements with the rest of us. Phans should be Phriends. What say you?
