Brett Myers Is No Cole Hamels

We're done with one half-inning here in Philly, and Phillies starter Brett Myers has already allowed more baserunners than Cole Hamels did in eight innings yesterday. After Mike Cameron struck out to lead off the game, the Brewers went walk-double-intentional walk-walk. The double was Ryan Braun's. The intentional walk was (of course) to Prince Fielder. The bases-loaded walk was to J.J. Hardy. There was also a mound visit from the pitching coach, which was one more mound meeting than Hamels required yesterday.

So what does Corey Hart do on the first pitch from Myers following the third straight walk? He swings at the first pitch -- tapping it back to the mound for a 1-2-3 double play. That's some inexcusable, Felipe-Lopez-type of stuff.

It's 1-0 Brewers and CC Sabathia taking the mound.

I'll re-post this:
CC is dialed in - he just struck out Chase Utley and Ryan Howard. What happened to Brett Myers? Did his right arm fall off before the first inning causing him to throw with his left? They got lucky.

CC is now ticked off that he allowed a run and has been throwing fireballs ever since.

OK - can I retract that last statement?

Dave - your second post of the evening shows why this post is just foolish. That's why these games are 9 innings long, not just one half inning . . .

Re. the gamer's comments on him not being a good hitter - I beg to differ...

well we all know how that game ended. Myers did a fantastic job. CC fails:his post season ERA is 16.88.
