06:55 AM ET 04.23 | Brett Myers' fresh start in a new city has gone from bad to worse. Sunday's MRI and exam of Brett Myers' right elbow in Cleveland revealed tendinitis and a mild strain (tear) of the ulnar collateral ligament. Myers won't be able to throw for two weeks. The Indians placed Myers on the disabled list Sunday after watching him pitch five innings in a 3-2 loss to Houston on Friday. ... In four appearances, Myers is 0-3 with a 8.02 ERA. He has allowed the most homers (10) and earned runs (19) in the big leagues this year. He is the first pitcher in history, according to Elias Sports Bureau, to surrender 10 homers in his first four appearances with a new team.

It is a sad statement when Myers is on your team and no one better in your system.

He was actually been pretty good over the previous three years, particularly last year and in 2010. It makes sense that a team like the Indians would take a low risk flier on him.

It is a sad statement when people make erroneous sad statements.

Maybe he needs some of the "vitamins" Bartolo Colon is taking.
