Brett “Wife beater” Myers demoted to minor leagues

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Brett Myers, who beat his wife in public in 2006, has been demoted to the minor leagues.  If Houston can release pitcher Shawn Chacon for fighting with his boss, why did Philadelphia not do the right thing and release Myers in 2006? (To be fair, there have been other players accused of domestic abuse who were not released.)

  1. I admire you for this post. Good insight and great questions raised. Being a woman, I am especially heartened that it is coming from a you (a man). I am very touched by your thoughtfulness. Not that men don’t raise these questions but you still touched me and impressed me. Thank you!

  2. Thank you. I saw him pitch once in San Francisco, and I booed him every chance I got.
