    I picked a heck of a game to give up sniffing glue.

    I agree. That's what I meant by "tough statistical break" -- he pretty much deserved it with his poor performance, was close to getting a "statistical break" on a fairly common technicality, but just missed.

    How does a fairly well-regarded guy go from 2.5 BB/9 and 8 K/9 all through the minors to this (~4 BB/9 and K/9)? After the Liam Hendriks debacle (primarily in H and HR rather than BB and K), I am real curious about how Meyer and May might transition to the majors now... hopefully their extra K/9 ability acts as a bit of a buffer, but who knows...
