Brett Myers WTF??

What were the Phillies thinking? While I believe that you are innocent until proven guilty in this country, such an egregious offense as spousal abuse simply can not be swept under the rug. It was not hearsay or he said/she said, there were at least 3 witnesses and at least 2 separate 911 calls! I mean, reports of this 6'4", 240 lb man not only striking his wife but draggin here off by her hair! The Phillies take was it was a "personal" not baseball issue. I'm sorry, but I find it hard to believe that if it was any of the Boston sports teams that he'd be participating until more facts were know...If not suspended indefinitely.

I have a problem with MLB in general as well on this issue. Bud rains down hell on the Chicago White Sox for Ozzie Guillen's insensitive comments towards Jay Marriotti and takes quick, decisive action against Jason Grimsley for admitted HGH use, yet sat with his thumb up his ass while Myers preceded to pitch as scheduled on Fenway Saturday slightly more then 24 hours after HIS WIFE bailed him out of jail!!

This story is far from over. The Phillies are getting killed by not only the Boston media but also the Philadelphia media. Wait until the women's' groups and the anti-abuse groups get involved. The Phillies are better off hanging him out to dry and sacrificing a season that's basically already over then face the onslaught that's coming!

Interleague play

OK, I admit it, I dig interleague play. I like seeing teams I usually don't see come play at Fenway and more importantly, get to see the Sox play in new parks. It's a great excuse for a road trip. However this year I've realized the gap between the American and National Leagues is growing ever wider. I look forward to seeing if the Met's fare any better, but based on the teams we've played so far, I'm totally not impressed

Brett Myers

I won't comment too much until more details come out, but I have NO tolerance for spousal abuse or really, abuse in general. If it turns out he's guilty, I hope they lock the big stiff up!!!
