Brett Myers hurts his groin

Mar 25, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

Brett Myers headshot.jpgBrett Myers faced his phormer Philly teammates today, the phirst time he did so since signing with the Astros. Unfortunately for him he had to leave the game with a strained groin. He’s going to be reevaluated Friday. He doesn’t think it’s serious.

As a professional sportswriter I am obligated to say that he “tweaked” his groin — because that’s what you do to groins — while covering first base on a groundout.  Myers allowed seven hits and three runs in 5.1
innings before leaving. He got booed when he started the game, but received a nice ovation from the fans in Clearwater when he
walked off the mound.

Of course, given (a) his history; (b) his recent statements; and (c) the fact that a lot of those fans are from Philly, they may have been cheering the injury, not the man.

    Did you just get a chubby when you referred to yourself as a professional sportswriter?

    Some poetic justice with that headline pertaining to Myers.

    Definitely cheering the injury. I can’t stand this guy. Not only did he beat his wife but I watched a video of him pulling a prank on some other player in the Philly clubhouse (can’t remember who, year or two ago) and the way he reacted just reminded me of the type of person that takes pleasure in pulling the wings off of flies. Just a complete dick.

    I think what you saw was when they told Kyle Kendrick he was traded. It was rotten, yeah. But a very good prank.

    Now I guess Kendrick had the last laugh yesterday when he was up against Myers in that game. With his 1.37 spring era, still on the Phillies and all. Good.
