Hildy's given up 11 earned runs over his past 14 innings pitched.

Demonstrating that he is ready to fill the shoes of Matty B!

Nice start for Mejia. I have to admit with the AAA and AA starting pitching talent waiting in the wings I kinda wrote off Mejia. However if he can have a solid season this year he’ll be a shoo-in as a part of next years rotation IMO.

Forsythe reached all four times. Has some versatility and has shown some power. Any interest in keeping him on a one-year deal?

Forsythe is 2 years removed from showing any power. And his only meaningful recent versatility is playing 3B. He'd have to show a pretty solid return to form for me to consider bringing him back -- a binge of singles and walks alone won't cut it. (.583 BABIP so far with the Twins!)

 

Keep in mind the market for infielders this offseason -- Forsythe doesn't look that compelling, and our projected payroll room doesn't suggest we need to go dirt-cheap on the position either.

Nice game by Mejia, this guy is doing a much better job keeping his pitch count down than the guy who pitched last year. Hope his wrist is ok.

One of my big gripes with the front office is how they waited until late June to call up Mejia this year, and then they sent him back down right away after the heat stroke game in Chicago. (Technically worse: they sent Mejia down after Lynn's poor start on the following day.)

 

Not that Mejia would have been a savior or anything, but he was a solid enough option to help shake things up, either as a starter or perhaps even in long relief.

Agreed.

There's always next year, or the next, or maybe by the time I'm Chief's age, I guess....

I’m somewhat surprised no one has mentioned that fact tha Moya has pitched in 7 of the last 10 games so I’m mentioning it.

Because MOY is who he is.

Also, Hildenberger has made ten appearances since July 20, a span of 18 days. One of which was an off day. So, that’s 10 appearances in 17 team games.

How can a guy who is a professional baseball manager continue to put Morrison's name on a lineup card?

Enough already.

My thought on it is that by giving him opportunities the team is hoping that he can do something good here in the next few weeks to get something for him in an August trade. If this continues into September, he probably sits for the majority of those games. I hope I'm right.

No reason to sit, just outright him and be done with it.
