Meyer 9 Ks in 3.2. Wtf, that's two guys that didn't strikeout. Come on, Alex.

r.e. Meyer...

If I am reading between the lines correctly (i.e. 3 K's looking), it looks like he was throwing the breaking ball today too!

Yep. That gust we're all feeling is Twins fans everywhere breathing a collective sigh of relief. Hopefully today's effort means the clean bill of health that gets him back up to New Britain and full-tilt resumption of his fast track to the Twins starting rotation.

Overlooked here is a good bounceback effort from Thorpe. Couldn't quite match Meyer, but I'll definitely take 0 hits and 6 Ks in 3.1 innings pitched.

2 much-needed bits of positive Twins news.

Meyer certainly looks the part of the real deal so far. Can't wait to get him up here.

Liam is still 24. Younger than Gibson and only 7 months older than Trevor May. I think there is still hope. I'm still hopeful he can figure it out and become a solid part of the rotation. If Diamond and Pelfrey get to suck for half a season in the rotation, I'm not sure what is stopping them from allowing Hendriks to get an extended look.
Do or do not. There is no try.
