LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- On Thursday in Clearwater, Brett Myers will pitch against the Phillies for the first time in his life when the Astros visit for a Grapefruit League game.
It's making Charlie Manuel sentimental.
"I miss Myers," Manuel said. "I miss getting on him. I miss his mouth. I miss everything. I think in our camp this year, it’s been a little quieter without Myers."
Myers, who spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Phillies, signed a one-year, $5.1 million contract with Houston during the off-season. Shortly after the Phillies were defeated by the Yankees in the World Series, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told Myers he would not be offered a new contract.
