During his introductory press conference with the Houston Astros yesterday, Brett Myers has some fightin’ words for his ex-team who showed no interest in re-signing the veteran right-hander.
“I wanted to go back to Philadelphia, but they didn’t show an interest, they had other obligations, which is fine with me,” Myers said. He then promised to “stick it” to the Phillies every time he faces them.
OOOOOooooooOOOOHHHHHH! We’re fucking scared over here.
Considering we only face the Astros twice during the regular season (April 9-11 @HOU and again August 24-26 at home), the biggest impact Brett could have against the Phillies is a whopping TWO whole wins. Plus, I’m sure by the second time we see the ‘Stros, Myers will either be injured from “playing catch with his son”, sent back down to the minors to “work on his mechanics”, or suspended after “punching his wife in the face”.
(OH SHIT BRETT, I FUCKING WENT THERE.)
Oh yeah, and Brett also credits Ed Wade for being one of the main reasons he chose Houston. No shit.
“Being familiar with Ed [Wade] made it a lot easier for the transition to be able to come over here and be able to pitch in this state and this city.”
“They beat us six out of seven last year so I know they had a good enough team to put wins together so hopefully I can just add to that and make it seven out of seven.”
By the way, Brett, the Astros only won SIX out of eight last year. And you ain’t “us” no more.
