I suppose since Arcia has been waived a few times; we need another a horse in rooting against the Twins recent transactions race.   I'm glad Meyer is getting another chance, but he's a September call

all this because Meyer looked good in Triple-A? OK

I'm just glad Nolasco is gone.  

 

Watched him pitch on Thursday live.  He looked really good.

It's absurd how poorly the Twins handled him.

 

For his sake, I hope he performs well, he deserves a legit shot. Something the Twins in the midst of their 500 losses over 5 seasons couldn't find somehow....

I don't think he ends up being a #2 type, or even very good as a starter, but I hope he does well.

I mean he has the size and the stuff to make it as a starter, I think if he somehow fails at that he can become a very awesome 8th/9th inning guy. Either way, dumb to include him in that trade.

Santiago is worse.

They easily could have just cut (or traded) Nolasco after this season anyways.

It was stupid as all hell to give up an asset to "get rid" of Nolasco, it makes no sense for a rebuilding team like the Twins to do that garbage.

They would have been better served giving up a guy like Grossman in the trade then a guy like Meyer who could have been a part of the future.

I have no idea if Meyer makes it or not, either as a reliever or starter. But I am pretty sure of one thing. If he does, the blame is clearly on the FO, and I might add the coaching staffs. The reason I am so specific, is that Alex Meyer wasn't some fly below the radar guy. He was a highly visible piece of a big trade. And if in five years they can't get him tuned up, and LA can in 3 months? The juries still out, but even if it takes LA into the end of next year to get a serviceable pitcher out of him.............. A small note on negativity here. It doesn't come from Alex Meyer, or Nolasco, or Rosario, or the plethora of AAAA players paraded through here in the last few years. It comes from the sum of all those parts. Any team can screw up an Alex Meyer. But few can do it with such consistency.

It'll be a good test. I've long believed that one of the biggest problems with the Twins is that management makes things more stressful, instead of helping players find a comfort zone. If Meyer does well with the Angels, who actually have not had a great environment for several years, that will say something.

 

Oh, and yes, the Twins would have been better off simply cutting Nolasco.

Bi lateral shoulder complications caused by "did I get sent down injured" and "I just don't wanna pitch here anymore"

In my medical opinion, the shoulder issue was caused by "they call me up and sit me in the bullpen for around 10 days" with a hint of "oh good, I get to start - wait, what do you mean you're pulling me in the 3rd inning?" Medically speaking.

I thought I recognized the name! We were at the same sports medical convention. :) sadly the AMA has so far refused to recognize our field of endeavo(u)r. :(
