    Myers was optioned to Single-A Clearwater yesterday so that they could replace him on the 25 man roster. He is not expected to pitch for Clearwater, they made the move just to open a roster spot. He is still expected to re-join the rotation his first turn after the All-Star Game.

    He hit a woman. Forget it. I'd rather lose than give money to a guy that would punch a lady in the face.

    Brett Myers, What do ya think? I think MLB should let the girl's father decide Myers' punishment.

    Myers was all over the local rags and news today being apologetic and saying he embarrassed the Phillies as well as his family and felt that he could get things back on track by after the All Star Break.
    Well, it may have just been my friend up there echoing some web talk or stuff he's heard around the sports bars, like I said, we were on IM at that time.

    What area of Philly you in Highlife? I get up there on occasion for buisness.

    FCB and zombie beat me to it. If he hit a woman, I never want him wearing a Reds uniform. Makes me sick.

    And, he is probably facing serious consequences as a result of his highly publicized arrest. He will go to court in Boston's highly politically charged arena where the DA and judge will be under national scrutiny to send a strong message about the seriousness of spousal abuse.

    Could he be out for the rest of the season while he goes through treatment? I think it is very likely if he wants to go to court with any ammunition to avoid a very severe penalty.

    Not just a "woman". She is his wife and the mother of their two children. What happened to honor and cherish?

    Supposedly she made a comment while it was occurring that she wasn't going to take it anymore and his initial comments after the assault were that he wished it hadn't happened in public.

    He may win a lot of baseball games but as a husband and father he is a loser.

    Did they have to re-do his contract for that?

    , Yeah, I believe he has a clause in his contract that allows that, unlike Wily Mo.

    Obviously, he had an option remaining.

    Let's go trade for him anyway. He'd fit in nicely beside Harang and Arroyo. If our top 3 looks like Harang, Arroyo and Myers, I like us in the NL Central for 2007.
