Zulgad: Meyer excited to make pitch for Twins
Zulgad: Newcomer Alex Meyer excited to make his pitch for Twins | 1500 ESPN Twin Cities ? Minnesota Sports News & Opinion (Twins, Vikings, Wolves, Wild, Gophers) | Sportswire: Minnesota Twins
Meyer had some roadblocks in his way to getting to the Nationals (Strasburg, Zimmerman, Gonzalez, Detwiler and now Haren), so he is excited to get a shot with the Twins organization.
"I think if I told you I don't think in those terms it would be a lie," he said. "I think for anybody who hasn't been there yet that's all they think about. I feel like if I do my job ... that's the one thing I've heard also is if you throw well in this organization they are going to move you (up). They're not going to hold you back. But it still comes down to me doing my job, throwing strikes and getting guys out. So as long as I do that I think that will take care of itself."

He's got the talking part down. Seems to have a good attitude.
I am almost as anxious as he is to have him be an outstanding pitcher for the Twins.
