With news Yohan Pino will be starting tonight for the Twins (despite a horrible start in Rochester) and Logan Darnell will probably start Saturday, many people are wondering why top pitching prospects Trevor May and Alex Meyer are aren't being called up. Well, it may be frustrating, but someday you will see them in a Twins' uniform (maybe even before they turn 30). However there are plenty of pitchers ahead of them on the front office's list of pitchers they want to see in the Twins' lineup, before May and Meyer. Here's a comprehensive list from an unnamed source within the Twins' organization:

Yohan Pino
Kris Johnson
Logan Darnell
Sean Gilmartin
Sam Deduno (phase IV)
Anthony Swarzak
Pat Dean
Tyler Duffey
Virgil Vazquez
Jim Perry (he's still got it)
Bert Blyleven (In the HOF for goodness sake)
Scott Erickson
Mudcat Grant
Carlos Silva (Silva! Silva! Silva!)
Drew Butera (if they can snag him in a trade)
Dan Gladden (career 4.50 ERA)
Bob Pohlad (mean slider)
Any of the Fox North girls (their curves are devastating)
Dave the Cotton Candy Vendor
Former mayor R.T. Rybak
Billy Mauer
The guys from the Carrier commercial
Wayne Hattaway (why not?)
Trevor May
Alex Meyer

Great list, but you left out an obvious one, based on past Twins' moves....Being a good organization guy, I think Mark Hamburger is also entitled to preference over the M & M boys, as well.

I think May gets the start on Sat, just my 2 cents. Darnell hasn't been as good lately.

Lavelle said he heard it's going to be Darnell... Whether true or not...

TC Bear would have been on the list, but he's out with a strained oblique...

In the spirit of the original post, maybe the Twins should keep their options open . . .

How old is that kid from Little Big League now? Or, uh, the "Rookie of the Year" kid? He struck out Ken Griffey, Jr. once.

Probably still too young to promote those guys from AAA. No walks allowed, just walkers.

Say, what is Jamie Moyer doing right now?

No, I just didn't find the post very funny. Though it is a nice change of pace from a bit of the doom and gloom.

I think May would have been an option if he hadn't just spent a month on the DL. Kind of silly to give a kid that is a prospect his first big league taste when he is rusty.

Meyer is a case where you don't pick the best pitcher but rather the best thing for his development. I think the Twins are more concerned about Meyer's arm than they let on and prefer him to be working on things where he might not try to find that extra oomph. there's also the issue of the 4.5 BB/9. Usually those numbers get worse at the MLB level so I can understand working on that in AAA before calling him up and potentially struggling.

This topic would have been quite funny if it was more relevant. Instead it's just another 'the Twins FO are idiots' thread.
