I was referring to this tweet. I thought I saw that he'd just miss a start or two, but "relatively quick" return for the Angels pitchers could be months. 

 

Mike Scioscia says Alex Meyer had an MRI and the tests encourage them that he can be back relatively quickly. #Angels

I didn't remember that. Yeah, obviously they were wrong. 

Just tonight they said he had another setback. They still say once he gets going, it could go quickly, but as long as he's stalled, I have no idea how long it will take.

Just get Ricky Nolasco out of this damn rotation

I think they have a chance but I've seen too much ebb and flow throughout the season to count on it.  What mystifies me is that the pitching has outperformed the hitting.  They can find pitchers but still have more problems with offense.

He's obviously got issues but the upside is tremendous as he's shown this year. Angels still win that trade once Nolasco is gone from the team

 

You're not going to get a perfect pitcher for Hector Santiago. Eppler went with the upside which is a smart move, and paid off this year. Hopefully he can come back in September and make a few starts down the stretch

I get that.   Just hope Meyer can possibly stay healthy enough one season down the road, and see what happens.

Doesn't always turn out to be weeks longer than first predicted!

Just seems to be that way in 2017.

Here we go again.

 Miss the playoffs by 1 game (or get clobbered in the WC round) and pick high 20's in the draft.

Can't wait.

Scioscia extension...how long?

#1, it doesnt have to be that way if the FO does its job half as well as the players have.  
#2 this is why i dont get whatever the  plan is... playing 500 ball wont help build the farm in any kind of short term 3-5 year window so please tell me how they plan to improve?

If the players did their job and produced the front office wouldn't have to plug holes.  Plug hole at 2nd because Espinosa couldn't hit.  Plug hole at 1st because Cron, Marte AND Valbuena started slow.

To watch you whine about it or to vow not to watch games because a grown man caused another grown man to stop watching the games, it would almost be worth it to give him an extension.

i put this in another thread as i think it needs to be addressed, but you should have known those guys were nothing more than clean peanut dumpster specials.   They are exactly what im referring too.  Terrible bargain basement signing that were never going ot take us anywhere.  But the point is they have gotten back in it, lets live in the now shall we?  rigth now we have a shot.

Cron has been instrumental in this run they are on.  We would be hard pressed to improve over him in August.

Maybe you know more about this than I do.  What third baseman have cleared waivers?  I read a lot but I don't think I've seen any good third baseman.  There is probably someone I'm not thinking of.

That's on the front office not on the players.

It's a chicken and the egg scenario.

We can go back and forth on the merits of the choices they made, but the bottom line is that those were almost complete failures. Espinosa is no longer a major league caliber player, Valbuena hasn't worked out, and Cron never should've been platooned. These are the results and this is a results base business.

We don't need a 3rd baseman. We need a 2nd baseman (Kinsler) so we can move Cowart to 3rd.

Ok, well he was claimed and they were unable to make a trade.  He's no longer available.

I think if Eppler finds a deal that makes sense for the team this month, he'll do it.  If no moves happen, it is not because Eppler wasn't trying.  Teams aren't just going to give away guys like Verlander and Kemp because they have big contracts.  They will still want prospects.
