Brett Myers Is Summoning His Inner John Rocker

John Rocker hates foreigners and Brett Myers hates questions. What they both have in common is the manner in which they choose to express their hatred.

This is (relatively) old news but if you missed Brett Myers explosion over the weekend, you really missed the boat and I feel it's my duty to fill you in. After giving up a couple of home runs on Friday night, Myers shrugged them off as "pop ups" that carried about 380+ feet. When asked for more specifics about these pop-ups, Myers went b-a-n-a-n-a-s (the link here is to coverage of the incident provided by Bugs & Cranks. It contains the audio of the conversation below. I STRONGLY recommend you check out the audio):
Sam Carchidi: “You thought they both were pop ups?”

Brett Myers: “Yeah, didn’t you? You think they crushed ‘em?”

SC: “The first one I thought was out, the second one no.”

BM: “Yeah, cause you’re a retard, you don’t know shit about fuckin’ baseball. You’re filling in for somebody.”

SC: “How do you spell ‘retard’?”

BM: “You know how to spell it, it’s in your fuckin’ vocabulary, I’m sure you know.”

SC: “You are classy, I’ll tell ya.”

BM: “Go on. [Get] outta here, you fuckin’ idiot.”

SC: [pointing at Brett Myers] “You’re the fuckin’ idiot.”

BM: “Hey! You pointin’ at me motherfucker?! I’ll tell you what, dude, I’ll knock you mutherfucking out! FUCK YOU!!! You’re tough when fuckin’ people are standing in front of you, aren’t you, you piece of shit! Come on! You fucking idiot. Yeah, you’re tough when fuckin’ people are standing in front of you, you stupid ass.”

SC: “I’m a retard?”

BM: “Yeah, that’s right, YOU ARE, you’re a fucking idiot. You ask stupid ass fucking questions!”
Nice, Brett. If this were an isolated incident, you might want to give Brett a pass. But considering that he brings with him a horse-trailer's worth of baggage including the time he slapped his wife and then dragged her down the sidewalk by the hair, Brett may need to simmer it down a notch before he gets himself imprisoned.

If BM was Black this would have been a national story and he would be suspended/fined/jailed/charged something.
