Myers out, Phils screwed

Phillies starter Brett Myers is going to be out for at least three months after finding out that he needs surgery on his hip. He has a torn labrum and bone spurs in the hip and he would risk further injury by trying to pitch through it.

The problem is that the Phillies only have about 1 1/2 pitchers on the staff now. Cole Hamels is a stud, we know that. But Jamie Moyer and Joe Blanton have been one step away from total garbage this year. If it wasn’t for JA Happ, who got the win tonight against the World Series-ready Washington Nationals, the rotation would be a complete waste.

Myers isn’t an unmitigated stud, but he was pitching pretty damn well. This is a big blow to a Phillies team that is looking to repeat (we never thought it would happen anyway). This team needs to make a move for a starting pitcher. Roy Oswalt would be nice.

    Aw, this is a quality content. Actually I would like to write like that as well – taking skill and substantial effort in making an excellent blog post… however what can I say… I procrastinate an awful lot and not seem to get things accomplished…

    Howdy,I’m a professional guitarist and I’ve came up with a silly rule that enables me to take a ten minutes time out every 1 hour of exercising. So, every break I have to do some thing totally different, so mostly I go to Yahoo and look for the suggested last hour blog. It is fun to do anything different and to find out about new things each and every day. By the way, right now I’m playing. Bach. Your website is fantastic, I wish I could stay for a longer time, however I should get back to play… Next time I’ll drop by again.

    Hi all, I could not come across any way to contact you, and so I truly hope that you go through this remark. I have a website about leather purses, and wondered if you’d like to exchange links with me. I’ve inserted my e mail address if you decide to make contact. Thank you.
