Phils Give Myers $3.3 Million

The Phillies and Brett Myers avoided arbitration today by agreeing to a 1-year, $3.3 million contract.  The new deal is a far cry from the $445,000 he made last season but he deserves it.  He was the Phils best pitcher statistically and this year has a chance to prove he’s the team’s ace (that is, unless Pat Gillick can make good on his quest to find a real #1).  It’s interesting to note that even though the Phils and Myers came to terms on a deal, it was still for the arbitration length 1-year term.  All the speculation as to when the Phils will resign him (again) is still valid.
