Myers Confident In Rotation – Phillies Nation

Myers Confident In Rotation

Good stuff from Randy Miller today. He talked to Brett Myers about the state of the Phillies starting rotation:

“It’s probably the best in the National League. That’s my opinion, and nobody is going to care about my opinion.”

Myers can definitely say he could be the best pitcher in the National League, well, if you look at his spring statistics. He and Cole Hamels form a fantastic 1-2 combination. After them, however, it’s anyone’s guess. We can’t say Kyle Kendrick will automatically duplicate his 2007 success, and Jamie Moyer is only getting older. Then there’s Adam Eaton. No explanation necessary.

I’m glad Brett’s putting his mouth out there — he’s been very outspoken this spring, a true leader. I just hope he’s somewhat correct about where the five-man group stands.

    And of course, Eaton is getting shelled. Throw up the flag.

    i think Moyer is a quality pitcher to have in the rotation. He can help out the younger kids and he’s relatively consistent. He gives up runs but keeps us in games, so as long as we score runs we’ll be fine with him.

    Brett’s half correct in his statement. Nobody cares.
    But seriously, best rotation in NL? I’m looking at DBAcks, Padres and Braves if healthy ahead of everybody else (Mets included). Dodgers and Cubs aren’t too bad, either.

    i’m usually biased in favor of the Phils, but this is not the best rotation in the NL. myers and hamels can compete with any 1-2 punches, but that’s as far as i’ll go. eaton is the worst starter in the majors, i’m hoping that kendrick will be ready for the batters that have now studied him, and this may be moyer’s last season. maybe myers meant to say that the phils have the best starting lineup in the NL because that’s true.

    Smoltz is hurt and Hudson is good, they are depending on Mike Hampton so Kiners you are off there. Th phils have a better rotation then them

    That’s why I said if healthy about the Braves, bro. How do you stand on the rest of the teams I mentioned?

    Its not the best starting rotation in the division, probably only the third best. And since when is Myers a great #2? He should be, but he has to prove it first.
