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.
