It has been a very suspect start of the '08 season for Brett Myers. He has been touched up for five HRs in just 18 innings of work, and his ERA is a stout five. Myers has had difficulty with his role as starter, then reliever, then starter again. His last eight starts have lead to the Phillies going 1-7, and his ERA is a ridiculous 6.02. He has also allowed 11 HRs in just 46 innings. Most forget that Brandon Backe has pitched to an ERA in the 3's over all his appearances the last three years. Going back to last September he has allowed an average of two runs over his last eight starts. Like the value in these odds and will back the Stro's here.
