  1. They were saying the middle relief is their weakness. But that the 8th and 9th guys are unhittable.

  3. Miguel Castro throws 98-100 with sink. Talent isn't the issue.
  4. Hess threw almost 90 pitches on 3 days rest. He's had the best start so far. It's unfortunate for Hess, But he had a hell of a game.
  5. Can't have the Yanks going 1-2 against the pick to be the worst team ever.
  6. Buckner is a joke of an ump year in and year out.
  7. Normally I'd be part of the crowd having the tough time. Lol
  8. Bird was called out on a worst pitch than he took for ball 4. Have no clue how Buckner is a major league ump still.
  9. I can tell reading this thread, some are going to have a tough time this year lol
  10. I think that's the case with most pitchers. Especially tall ones. Can he repeat his delivery? That's another issue Wright has had.
  11. I wasn't sold on Wright's early ST dominance. Once he started seeing the regulars more later on, he struggled. I hope Wright is successful. He seems like a good guy and I really like the cause he pitches for. I just don't think all of a sudden Mike Wright is going to find fastball command at 27 years old. Hope I'm way off.
  12. I do like the addition of the cutter. It has nice movement. But it seems Wright was back to worrying about velocity. He had no idea where the fastball was going.
  13. I doubt Hyde sees it that way. He wants to win every game he can. He's not thinking about draft picks or experimenting at the cost of a win. He wants to build a winning culture. I agree with your point. I just don't think Hyde would lol.
  14. Other than hitting 96-97 again, he looked like the same Wright. No idea where the ball is going, but has flashes of dominance. Maybe they can hide that better in 1 inning stints. Side note, when Blier was struggling, you could read Givens lips in the dugout. He said "I should have went back out there ".
  15. I think he's talking in a perfect world type situation. What team wouldn't want a situation where your SP goes 6 innings, then you can match up on your terms and have a shutdown setup man and closer? I think Hyde is right. Does that mean that's how he plans on doing it? I think he will see what he has to work with, then go from there.
