I may be 'getting out over my shoes a little', but if the 'Gameday' pitch locations are to be believed, Meyer's first walk (with runners at 1st and 2nd and 1 out) probably left him shaking his head... and it's not too surprising that the following sequence occurred:
I would imagine James had a pretty good view of these pitches and wonder if it had something to do with his chirping.

I wonder what Beresford's pitch sequence looked like?

A few days ago I saw Met's pitcher Dillon Gee throwing what I believed to be a knuckle curve in an mlb condensed game video. They showed Gee throwing the pitch in super slo-mo, and it was really neat seeing how he gripped the ball with the forefinger jammed behind the seams, his middle finger behind the lead seam, his thumb behind the trailing seam, his elbow cocked back, hand behind his ear, palm facing third base. The forward rotation on that ball when it came out of Gee's hand looked like a good topspin tennis serve.
If Alex Meyer has a knuckle curve anything like Gee's, we're all in for a treat when he gets to Minnesota.

Hotels: Hmm, there's a La Quinta inn about a mile away from the stadium. I bet it's pretty cheap. And as far as transportation, probably Metronorth train to New Haven, and I'm guessing that New Britain is on a busline.
Let me know if you decide to go. Beer's on me.

Next time you have to sneak to the seat behind TR. Would have been interesting to see his notes.
I bet it's in invisible ink, in a scrawl readable only by himself, and even if you could see it, and read it, it would look like:
