Every fifth game – whenever Brett Myers is the starting pitcher – I’ll be cheering against my beloved Philadelphia Phillies. The former 1st round draft pick and Phillies best pitcher was arrested last night in Boston after hitting his wife on a street near Fenway Park. Full article here. Fine him, bench him, trade him – The Phillies need to send Brett Myers a message (somehow, though, I doubt they will).
I can often put aside personal stuff when I cheer for a guy on the field, but not in this situation – there’s no excuse for domestic violence.
