I was looking at the rotations thread and I see the likely A's rotation listed as:

1. Zito
2. Harden
3. Loaiza
4. Haren
5. Blanton

Any chance Meyer breaks into it, or does he need an injury to one of the others before he has a chance?
Bah, humbug.

You don't want to see Haren's minor league stats last year but I'll show it to you anyway :-o

Awww. Baseball cube isn't loading for me but it was ugly. Plus, guys like Saarloos and Kennedy will make it before Meyer unless he had a superb spring training. I'd say the rotation is set in stone now.
Are you interested in joining a 28 teams dynasty league? If so, PM me.

Well of course there is a chance, but it isn't a very big one. The guys in front of him would likely need to be injured or really suck this year. The problem for Meyer last year is that he was hurt and never could come back from it. Not only was he hurt but that he never recovered his FB's velocity or effectiveness of his slider. He really needs to be in the minors so he can at least try to get those pitches back where they used to be, but there is always the possibility that it could be an on going problem with him.

Haren and Blanton are the real deals, at least i think so. Saarlos and Kennedy are next in line should some one go down, or Loazia MELT down. lol. Meyer was hurt last season and when he did pitch he was down right horrible. When Oakland aquired him he was one of the top prospects in the game now he is pretty much forgotten about and rightfully so. I don't think he will ever amount to an ace or live up to Tim Hudson. But at least the Mulder trade where the A's got
Danny Haren
Kiko Calero
Daric Barton

will that one worked out pretty well! what a freakn steal, we got a starter better then muler at least last season, a nice reliver and our top hitting prospect!

Anyways Meyer is another year away AT LEAST. He has yet to show much as he was shut down last season.
