Brett Myers Blows Game, Then Blows Up At Philly Reporter Sam Carchidi Calling Him A 'Retard' And Much More

8/26/07 in MLB   |   CriticalFanatic   |   respect


Brett Myers seems like a nice guy. You know; the kind that beats his wife and is liable to blow up at any given moment. Last night was one of those (no word on the wife beating, but likely).

Following Myers blown save, Philly reporter Sam Carchidi questioned the Phillies pitcher use of the word pop ups. Hilarity ensues.

Here's the audio - Brett Myers vs Sam Carchidi (heavily edited "conversation" below)

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 s**t about f***in’ baseball. You’re filling in for somebody.”

SC: “How do you spell ‘retard’?”

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

SC: “You are classy, I’ll tell ya.”

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

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

BM: “Hey! You pointin’ at me mother****er?! I’ll tell you what, dude, I’ll knock you mutherf***ing out! F**K YOU!!! You’re tough when f**in’ people are standing in front of you, aren’t you, you piece of sh*t! Come on! You f**ing idiot. Yeah, you’re tough when f***in’ 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 f***ing idiot. You ask stupid ass f***ing questions!”
Very nice. Glad we're all grown ups here. Remember how Brett Myers was taking Anger Management classes. That went well.

I didnt find it ridiculous. Especially compared to 70% of the stuff out there.

alright first off brett myers is no saint by any means

2nd off, what he said crossed the line a little bit but i think he pushed it on purpose because of the way the phillies are playing lately..ie, things go wrong, manager goes off in argument etc. i honestly believe a lot of his "anger was towards that".

thirdly, brett myers wife is a crazy bitch (cue the buckcherry music). shes a drama queen in all aspects of the word. shes one that likes to party, drink etc. ive heard stories from people in philly who were at bars that many of the philly team's players go to who have seen guys there with their families. ive heard from many people who said they have seen myers' wife go off on him in the bars when he tells her hes not going to get her another beer. from the stories ive heard, shes a lazy worthless piece of trash that makes her husband do everything for her, and if she doesnt get her way she goes off...

...which leads me to the boston "wifebeater" story. this is all from one of my parents friends who live in the same neighborhood as myers and gets to talk/meet with a lot of the eagles and phillies players. and obviously talks to the myers family once in a while.

myers and his wife were bar hopping in boston thursday night/friday morning..they go into one bar, get a beer, walk around town, see another bar, get another beer so on and so forth. myers cuts the line as usual, says i need to get back to the hotel, gotta pitch in a couple days (i believe he was supposed to pitch one of the boston games before he got benched but i may be 100% wrong) and his wife went off on him because she didnt want to go back to the room and stop drinking yet. she wined and moaned, and fell to the ground trying to make a scene.

myers, wanting to prevent a scene (boy did that backfire), grabbed her by her hair as she went down to try to pull her back up and head back to the room. now bretts a big guy, 6'4'', so its pretty easy for anyone from a distance (which many of the witnesses who talked on the sports shows were from a distance) to think hes physically abusing her, and not be able to hear her whine and moan about having to go back to the room.

theres your story, take it or leave it..let me just end it on this note. dont always rely on ESPN/sportscenter for your off the field news, they just want ratings and will do whatever they can for it..sportscenter = the sports worlds entertainment tonight

Thumbs up for the length.

No matter how it was said, the reporter agreed.  If he said, you think he massacred the ball, its still the same situation.  The pitcher doesn't wanna hear that, especially in a ballpark, which gives up way to many home runs, and doesn't go un-noticed.

I'm sorry if I got irritated and for any reason this seemed like I was attacking you personally because we don't agree.
I have nothing against you and wasn't trying to piss you off personally.
I just think that Myers is not a good person (IMHO) and think he did beat his wife and that this latest little tirade was just sad.
Just my opinion here.
I'm sure a lot of people might disagree.

did you follow the questions?
Myers thought the home runs he gave up were pop ups...
 Which sounds fairly insane anyway...
Like if somebody asked me, if I was a pitcher, about the pitch selection on a pitch that I threw and I said that it wasn't really a home run --- it was a pop up !
And then after he said that then the reporter asks him if he thought they were both pop ups and the reporter honestly says yes and so then Myers responds by cursing at him and calls him names...
Does that sound like rational behavior to you?
To me it sounds borderline psychotic...

There is a string of agressive behaviour from Myers over the past few years and it's pretty obvious that he has a anger problem and he needs to really learn how to interact with people.
He's far from the only one --- but it doesnt get any better when his family, the organization, and all the fans just turn a blind eye and act like he doesn't do anything wrong...

You mean it would have to be attended to by a good smack in the face --- I take it ?

No I wasn't digging at anything.  I don't talk about peoples families here on faniq.  Thanks anyway.

You don't know, cuz I'd put money on it that you weren't outside that bar in Boston.  And you didn't see what happened.  And neither did many people, and like I said earlier, we don't know who the witnesses were.  So we don't know how that effects their story.

He's just not that famous and people just don't care.
If it was somebody like Alex Rodriguez in Boston getting arrested or Manny Ramirez in New York I might see something like that because they would be hugely recognizable and could be hated.

Judge Raymond Dougan acknowledged that Myers struck his wife June 23, yet dismissed the charge over the objection of prosecutors because Kim Myers agreed to an affidavit showing she did not want the charge pursued."

"“He’s a loving father, he’s a loving husband. This is not something that happens on a daily basis,” she said. “Or ever.”


It doesn't happen ever?
Then why even say the first part about it not happening on a daily basis and then saying not ever ?
Freudian slip?

and in the same article...

"Authorities say the two were arguing when Brett Myers hit his wife. One witness told investigators he pulled her hair."

I guess the witnesses and the authorities are just making it up to make Myers look bad, huh?

See my last point, we don't know who the witness is.  Don't you think a bar outside of Boston would have a few more witnesses than were interviewed?

Jason never pulled crap like the stuff Myers does.
Myers is a verbally and physically abusive man who has abused his wife physically and verbally and these cases are documented and were criminally prosecuted.
He was then entered into court ordered anger management training that didn't appear to work.
He now regularly verbally abusers and physically threatens members of the media if they disagree with him.
Jason has never done things like this and has almost always been kind and generous with the fans and the media --- which is why some fans continue to support him.

How much time did you put into the Myers story.  I bet your one of the thousands of people who listened to ESPN and believed hey this guy smacked his wife around after drinking a few beers.  Well maybe you oughta get the real story next time.  Don't believe everything you hear, especially from the media.

Oh, and another thing, your telling me Myers goes off on one reporter and he's the most classless?  What about Kenny Rogers, or Barry Bonds.  Rogers actually physically touched a reported, and Bonds is an ass to reporters day in and out.  But noo he's got more class than Myers.

Coming from a guy who goes to the ball park to root on Jason Giambi.

I haven't heard the audio yet but wouldn't it have been funny if he screamed after that, "NEXT QUESTION!!!"

No harm, no foul.  I think it's kind of funny, even though the reporter didn't do anything.  But it sparked the team, we scored 14 runs today threw 7 innings.
