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)
Very nice. Glad we're all grown ups here. Remember how Brett Myers was taking Anger Management classes. That went well.
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!”
Brett Myers blows (the game); screams obscenities at reporter (Bugs and Cranks)
