Did Brett Myers Tell Byrd What Was Coming in the Ninth?

Last night, with two outs in the ninth inning and Brett Myers about to conclude his dominant performance against the Cubs, I saw him look in for the sign on the 1-2 pitch to Marlon Byrd and yell “fastball up!” 

I couldn’t figure out what he was doing, as I was sure that he wasn’t yelling out for Byrd to hear what he was about to throw.

Next pitch: A high fastball taken for a ball.

Did anyone else see this?  Why would Myers let Byrd know what was coming?  Was he taunting him?
