Brett Myers hurts his groin

Brett Myers faced his phormer Philly teammates today, the phirst time he did so since signing with the Astros. Unfortunately for him he had to leave the game with a strained groin. He’s going to be reevaluated Friday. He doesn’t think it’s serious.

As a professional sportswriter I am obligated to say that he “tweaked” his groin -- because that’s what you do to groins -- while covering first base on a groundout. Myers allowed seven hits and three runs in 5.1 innings before leaving. He got booed when he started the game, but received a nice ovation from the fans in Clearwater when he walked off the mound.

Of course, given (a) his history; (b) his recent statements; and (c) the fact that a lot of those fans are from Philly, they may have been cheering the injury, not the man.
