New York Mets: Boom… Outta Here

I know Phillies hurler Brett Myers (right) has become somewhat of a punching bag on Rome’s show (or an all-out legend depending on who you ask) on the strength of his tirade against a local beat writer. I’d say he’s a bit of both.

The piece de resistance of the outburst is the line, “Boom… Outta here”. Instant classic! In fact, it’s become part of my vernacular.

Leaving work? Boom… Outta here

Done with the lawn? Boom…Outta here

You get the picture. Well Mr. Myers has gotten his groove back. Earlier this season he was struggling and was sent to the minors but according to this recap, Myers is

6-1 in nine outings since coming back from the minors July 20. He is 4-0 with a 0.58 ERA in his past four starts spanning 31 innings – holding the opponent scoreless three times.

Tonight, Myers shut down the division-leading New York Mets and by all accounts, he is, in the words of Gunnery Sergeant Hartman, “born again hard”.

By the way, former Astros closer Brad Lidge recorded his 34th save (in 34 opportunities) in the victory.  Yeah, that smarts…
