So, the Twins season didn't go so well this year, or the year before that. Or the year before that.
Pitching was the primary concern from all accounts, especially in 2013.
So this news coming out of the Arizona Fall League was nice to see for Twins fans.

Law, a former baseball executive and current baseball scout/writer, is at the AFL scouting. The league kicked off today, with many Twins prospects participating as members of the Glendale Desert Dogs, managed by New Britain Rock Cats manager Jeff Smith.
Results aren't quite as important as process in this developmental league, but for what it's worth, Meyer finished with three earned runs in three innings pitched, three strikeouts, one walk and five hits.
The league runs through Nov. 16 and invites annually some of the games brightest prospects.
