Brett Myers stinks.
At least that’s the prognosis of Indians fans after two starts.
It’s hard to take a leap of faith after two starts where he’s given up seven runs each time, but he should be doing better than this.
His career ERA is 4.25, nothing great, but certainly better than what he’s shown (0-1, 12.19 ERA). He had a 3.31 ERA last season pitching out of the ‘pen. In 2011 and 2010, he had a 4.46 and a 3.164 ERA as a starter.
He left Chicago, which is a notorious park for pitchers, to a better one in Cleveland.
Yeah, it’s disappointing to see to awful starts like that. And it will take a while for his earned-run average to fall.
I’d still expect a rebound at this point.
