Myers is more mature now than anybody could have reasonably expected

Here's an interesting article in the Philadelphia paper about the Maturity of Brett Myers.

Ed Wade:
"The impact that he had in the clubhouse was all very positive. As much as Brett used to be a guy you had to have a lot of meetings with and deliver messages to, now the reality is that to some extent he's the guy who carries some messages for the manager and the pitching coach and understands a lot about what teammate etiquette is all about. And that's important, particularly with a club that's young and still searching and trying to determine who the true leaders on the club really are. He's on time every day, he does his work, he prepares well. The good teammate and tough love all come out at different points in time. It worked out better than anybody's wildest imagination."
