    I agree, a guy that can come in and throw 3-4 innings and save the pen is probably going to be the most likely way to contribute from this role.

    This 40 man argument is frustrating to me.

    Delaying the promotion of literally your best pitching prospect reaching the majors since 2006 because you may lose Pedro Florimon, Edgar Ibarra, Logan...

    I hope you are right. I did notice they gave Meyer 99 pitches last outing after an 80 pitch count limit most of the year. Hopefully they want him up here without a limit and they want to get him...

    Completely agree here. We have seen some misleading performances in September due to a small sample. Parmelee and Revere come to mind.

    We are in last place. I would rather test out potential...

    I will concede they have a lot more information. But I am not willing to give them a complete pass because they do. The guy has 300 IP under his belt with a 3.06 ERA and a k rate of 10.4 per 9. I...

    Jack,

    Can you speak to the perception that the Twins are behind the curve when it comes to things like sabermetrics, platooning, defensive shifts, etc? How much influence do you and your team...

    I am not OK with this. Johnson and Pino = Walters, Devries, etc as another poster noted. None are still with us. The fact that Meyer and May might be next in line does not make it OK for me that...

    Every number but his BB rate this year says he has nothing left to accomplish in the minors, IMO. That isn't to say he won't struggle, but it is all relative.

    I think a K rate of 27% negates the...

    Burdi had the initial rough outing, but outings #2 and #3 were both 1 IP, 1 H, 3 K's.

    When is the last time the Twins have had more than two consistent starters on their team? 2010?

    I hope you are very, very wrong here but I can't lay down any money on this one. We probably want to see Pino get more starts, May, Kris Johsnon, see what we have in Scott Diamond, etc.

    He is coming off two pretty good years. Interesting. Bet he is glad he took a discount.

    It goes beyond Deduno though. Pelfrey had a 7.99 ERA.

    In 18 starts, Corriea has failed to reach the 5th inning three times and has 8 starts with 4 ER or more.

    So Meyer goes 4 or 5 IP in...

    The only thing I can make sense of these comments and why Meyer is still in AAA would be either the futures game, or they are waiting until next June. Both make zero sense to me.

    The next playoff...

    This is a difficult game. Pedro had sick movement on many of his pitches. I have not heard anyone say Berrios has great movement.

    Pedro's MLB numbers were at 10.0 K per 9 and a SO to BB ratio of...

    The issue with waiting until next year with Meyer is three fold.

    1) Based on talent, ceiling, age, numbers, he should be up this year and it is nearly impossible to refute that.

    2) He is...

    Agreed. Put me in the camp of extremely leary of giving Gardy the option of an aging player that was good for him in the past. After the three this year, I have had my fix.

    I guess I am wondering what else Meyer has to do? 89 IP, 3.43 ERA, 103K. His 4.3 BB per 9 is higher than you would like to see, but if you have a guy striking out 26% of the batters I would guess...
