Brett Myers is no longer a Phillie

We are only two days removed from the end of the World Series and the Phillies have already begun making moves for 2010. The first move the Phillies did was obvious as they picked up their option on Cliff Lee for next season. Their second move is a little more interesting as it means the loss of a longtime Phillie.

Brett Myers, who has been in the Phillies organization since he was drafted in 1999, has informed the media that the Phillies have told him he won't be back with the club. Myers is a free agent this offseason so the Phillies have decided that he isn't worth bringing back.

Myers' career with the Phillies was a tumultuous one to say the least. Myers had his fair share of off field drama and bounced around from the rotation to the bullpen but he was always loyal to the team. Despite his domestic issues, it was hard not to like the guy for everything he did for the organization. The Phillies won't bring him back because they feel they can use their money more wisely, not because Myers isn't a good clubhouse guy.

I'm looking forward to seeing Myers return to Philly next season wearing another uniform. He should get a nice reception at the Bank.

totally agree. Although Myers had some bumpy times in a Phillies uniform there is no denying his the importance of some of his best moments. Closing out the 2007 NL East title, "The Walk" against CC, and his multiple hit performance against the Dodgers are just some of the good times I will always remember. He will definitely get a nice reception whenever he makes it back to CBP.

I agree -- kinda sad to see him go. But hopefully the Phils will make some moves to further strengthen their starters and/or bull pen for next season.

You got that right, Joe. The header will change to Flyers after the Eagles win the Superbowl! Not sure I'll be fitting in the Sixers, though....

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Yesterday I discovered this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Xbox Live Tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online Football game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
