Quincy Latimore certainly shouldn’t stand in his way.

yes, Meek is not the same Meek of 2 years ago.  and im really glad to see Alderson gaining some success, but Alderson getting guys out in Altoona isnt anywhere near the same as getting dudes out in Pittsburgh.

He’s done so well in long relief. Plus is velocity is up with Evan Meek being god awful with his velocity. Alderson might be needed cause he has more control and is getting outs at better rate then Meek.
