He's pitching Saturday in Indianapolis. I figure the best way to get him up is if we all go to see him.

Who's in?

(just a note, I'm not sure I can make it due to travel, but normally, I'd be game since I live in Indy)

Indy has a nice stadium. I once watched Perkins imploded there. I remember thinking at the time " he can't even get out of the 3rd inning in AAA, no way he's a starter much longer..." I guess I was right, just not in spirit. :)

The whole point of promoting Meyer to MLB is so we don't have to go to Indianapolis to see him pitch. :)

 

Unless you're suggesting we go to Indianapolis and bring him back with us.  Meyer might even be a willing abductee.  Although the proper National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation form would be to kidnap TR and bring him to Indianapolis so he can realize how poorly he has treated Meyer. :)

If we are following a Vacation plot, we would all get down there and he would not be there.A promotion would not be Wally World-esque, so we would have to move him to New Britain to work on a new 4th pitch.He will really struggle without mastering a knuckle ball.

More like Murphy's law.We go to see him, but he gets promoted.

I live in the Indy suburbs and can usually make one or two games a year.It's a very nice stadium.You are right on top of the field too, so if you get there early, you have no problems chatting with players.

Okay ... I'm in ... guess I can make the round-trip from Chicago.  Any other takers from Chicago want a ride?  Big Dog?  Levi?

HAWKS!!! Kissin' the Stanley Cup in 2015! :)

Sorry Chi...I'm not longer a Chicagoan.  Took my lovely wife and moved back to southern MN.  I get down there a lot so I don't have food withdrawal too badly.  :)

Well, yeah, good food everywhere here ... but personally I'd rather be back in Mpls.  I grew up in Southern MN ... well, Southeastern MN actually ... good place that. :)

Hope the ugly one doesn't read TD and come look you up. :)

When I said I meant that literally and not as just a figure of speech, that was just a figure of speech. I didn't mean it literally.

TBD is pitching for the Twins on Saturday. Sure would be fun to see Alex Meyer be that guy for Minnesota and not be pitching in Indy.

well that ship has sailed. I'm unfortunately in Fort Wayne today, but if I was in town, I'd be there.
