OK here's the million dollar question....

Should the Phillies have allowed him to start on Saturday or should they have sent him home until this is sorted out?

There's been a lot of people on the radio bitching that Myers should not have been allowed to pitch after this incident and that the Phillies have in essence turned a blind eye on a serious situation simply becasue it served their needs. I understand that he's presumed innocent until proven guilty -- or rather he's SUPPOSED to be presumed innocent. We as a society seem to be moving away from that little facet of our justice system and allowing suspects to be tried in the media instead of the courtroom.

So which is the right move if YOU are the Phils GM? Do you send him home or allow him to pitch?

I skip his turn in the rotation and keep him out of the ugly situation of going before a hostile Boston crowd. It solves a lot of issues at one time without casting aspersions. Don't send him home - allow him to stay with his fellow teammates at a time where it would appear he needs some support.
