Meek should be good to go. I hope he gets some z power and pitches some jewels.


I can see the Morris argument, however Meek has been here before and that should benefit him. His performance however will dictate how long he stays.

Glad to see him back.


This isn’t the same meek from 2 years ago…

Those K-BB numbers suck for Meek. He never used to be that bad. I am not looking forward to this.

Meek and not Morris? Curious…
