Strib's JoeC: Brett Myers' Agent says Twins "perhaps very interested"

Brett Myers is an interesting idea, though I'm sure his lack of overpowering speed and mediocre (to be kind) strikeout rates will fail to excite most Twins fans. If Myers would turn out to be the "biggest" addition to the rotation that Terry Ryan can come up with, I would be less than thrilled, as well, but let's be honest... the Twins are not going to be high on the list of teams for most top free agent pitchers. Teams that have lost as many games as the Twins have lately often have to settle for pitchers who are trying to re-establish themselves and with Myers trying to find a team that will give him an opportunity to earn a rotation spot, rather than a bullpen gig, it may be a logical match.
That being the case, I don't think I'd have any objection at all to the Twins signing Myers to a low guarantee plus incentives deal. If you're Myers, you certainly have to look at the guys the Twins current starters and think, "hell I KNOW I'm better than those guys."
