2007 Chachi #9 Brett Myers

Brett Myers was dealing tonight against the Bronx Bombers. He pitched 8 strong innings in New Yankee Stadium, striking out 5, as the Phils won, 7-3. Brett made a few mistakes in the 8th inning, allowing a pair of home runs, but the offense had already provided him with plenty of cushion.

In the first, Jimmy Rollins hit the first pitch he saw from A.J. Burnett into the bleachers for a 1-0 lead. Carlos Ruiz, Jayson Werth and Raul Ibañez each followed up with home runs of their own. Chooch finished the night 3 for 4.

Fox game tomorrow, which means I'll be listening to L.A. and Scott Franzke on the radio.

And one more thing . . . Rumors swirling in Philly tonight saying the Phils are involved in talks with the San Diego Padres for Jake Peavy. Peavy previously turned down a deal to the White Sox, so I'm not sure why he'd approve a deal to the Phils. In Ruben we trust.
