Brett Myers Hopes To Stay With Phillies

MLB.com's Todd Zolecki spoke to Phillies pitcher Brett Myers yesterday.  The 28 year-old righty is entering the last year of his contract.  After John Lackey, Myers is in the running to be the second-best available free agent starter after the season.

Myers managed to drop 35 pounds in the offseason, and he's also trying to improve his changeup.  He has no desire to pitch the ninth inning anymore, and said he "absolutely" wants to stay with the Phillies beyond this year.  With a huge season he could have a shot at an A.J. Burnett contract (five years, $82.5MM), but he may wind up in the Oliver Perez range (three years, $36MM).
