Brett Myers handled the Yankees well tonight
and has settled down and become a great starter in '09
The Phillies had everything go right for them tonight. The pitching from Brett Myers was stellar, and the Phil’s bats exploded and this all was put together for a much needed win tonight in the Bronx. The Phillies will set the pace for the remaining games at New Yankee Stadium this weekend.
The Phillies pounded out 14 hits and 7 runs tonight powered by homeruns by Jason Werth, Raul Ibanez, Carlos Ruiz, and the leadoff homer to start the night by Jimmy Rollins. Ryan Howard had a rare 0-5 and didn’t get into tonight’s homerun frenzy, but look for him to get a homer by the time this series ends on Sunday afternoon.
This Yankee team is the strangest bunch for a $200 plus million dollar team, and I don’t think Joe Girardi knows how to handle this bunch. It only seems like a couple of years ago that he himself was on the bench as a player. The team needs an older manager like a Jim Leyland.
Game 2 starters:
JA Happ for the Phillies and
Andy Pettite for the Yankees… hey didn’t he use steroids too?
