    Exactly! When Meyer is ready to shine on the big stage they will find a spot for him, as it should be. This won't be another Gibson, where the rotation imploded and they were looking for a savior. Long term, I don't believe it hurt Gibson, but it certainly didn't help him.

    I think Meyer is up when he shows he's ready. Last year we had 8 starters make 10 or more starts. The year before it was 9. Don't worry about him being blocked.

    I wouldn't be concerned about service time for a 24 year old pitcher. If it is a concern, get the extra year of service by waiting a few weeks. They should absolutely not worry about super 2. If he pitches lights out and earns big dollars in arbitration a year early, pay him and be thankful.
    Agree with this.

    Not really baseball related, but an interesting read non the less.

    Sounds like a pretty normal guy, just trying to starve off boredom and give back to the community a bit.

  5. These 2 users like Intramural Legend's post and want to buy him/her a steak dinner:
