Phils add Myers to roster, Martinez to start Game 2

The Philadelphia Phillies recently made two pitching moves in preparation for their upcoming battle with the New York Yankees in the World Series, one was naming Pedro Martinez the Game 2 starter and the second was adding Brett Myers to their roster.

Martinez will oppose A.J. Burnett at Yankee Stadium, while Cole Hamels will start in Philadelphia for Game 3. Martinez is obviously familiar with the Yankees from his days in Boston and has pitched in his fair share of tough environments throughout his career. He gives Philadelphia loads of postseason experience.

Held out of the NLCS, Myers was added at the cost of Miguel Cairo, whom was subtracted from the roster. Myers got two outs without allowing a run in his only playoff appearance this year, which came against the Rockies in the NLDS. He had a 6.43 ERA in eight relief appearances after returning from hip surgery in September.

His wife on national TV also rejected him when he went in for a kiss:

Ah, I can’t get enough of that…

Brett Myers gets denied!

Hey, we’ve all been there. We go in for a kiss with that special someone who wasn’t expecting it and all of a sudden they pull away as if you have a combination of tuna fish and dirty diaper on your breath.

But in most cases, your failed smooch doesn’t occur after you won a game to get you back into the World Series, nor does it happen on national television.

Unless of course, you’re Phillies pitcher Brett Myers.

Seeing as how he was accused of punching his wife in 2006, Myers deserved every bit of that humiliation.
