KYW-1060 AM caught the brouhaha between Phillies reliever Brett Myers and Inquirer reporter Sam Carchidi on tape. The incident occurred after last night's game between the Phillies and Padres, in which Myers allowed two home runs in the ninth inning. Tempers flared when Myers and Carchidi disagreed on whether the home runs were cheap Citizens Bank Park specials. Listen here.
Beerleaguer take: I don't envy the professionals who trek into the clubhouse after games like Saturday's and face what Carchidi faced last night. I work hard to write and maintain Beerleaguer, but I can do so at home or in office space, talk to no one and complete the job on my own terms. Nobody will ever threaten bodily harm, five minutes until deadline.
