Myers postgame:

"We've got to do what we need to do to win games. You can't be selfish," Myers said. "Right now is a serious situation for us. The Braves lost tonight, and the Wild Card is still in our favor. If the same situation comes up again, I won't be happy, but I'll do what I've got to do ... This game is more about your team and not about yourself."

He's maturing, albeit slowly.

J- Myers did have a good quote after the game:

"We've got to do what we need to do to win games," said Myers, who was lifted after only four innings and 84 pitches for a pinch-hitter just before the Phillies' bats came alive for an 11-3 victory over struggling Arizona in the first of a three-game set at Bank One Ballpark.

"You can't be selfish," Myers said. "Right now is a serious situation for us. The Braves lost tonight, and the Wild Card is still in our favor. If the same situation comes up again, I won't be happy, but I'll do what I've got to do ... This game is more about your team and not about yourself."

And I totally agree with you on Fultz, the same guy that Marcus Hayes had slammed yesterday morning in a piece that incorrectly stated that Cormier was ahead of Fultz in the pen.

Thanks for the quotes, fellas.

Brett's imaturity on the mound is the point I'm most upset with. He let his team down once again because of his temper. The game worked out because of the offense and the bullpen, but the team really needs him to lasso in his emotions and start focusing on the task at hand like he did last Saturday. I think he understands that - as reflected in the postgame quotes, but he's got to bring that attitude with him on the field.

Agreed, especially after Glaus' shot. Was it me, or did he seem to be afraid to throw his fastball again? I only saw the last couple innings of his game against the Pirates, last night his lack of control was brutal.

I agree with CM's move, it did look like Myers was afraid to go with his heat.

Nice to see that he can put his own desires behind those of the team. Of course he's mad about coming out, as long as he gets over it.
