It appears that Myers will never regain his form as a starter. He just was shipped out to Doule A in an attempt to stretch him out.
Given that Jenks is hurt, it gives the Phils the depth they need to go after CC for the penant run . With a low minor league throw in the Sox might be tempted to take a shot at Myers as their long range closer, while geting rid of CC who they will lose at the end of year .
The Phils by signing a long term contrat with Lidge, have all but religated Myers to a starter. His 5+ ERA as a starter just doesn't cut it.
The trade makes sense for both teams now.
