Maybe too soon to ask about Mike Wright

I saw the same old Mike Wright vs the NYY yesterday. 1-2 count. Couldn’t put Voit away in inning one. Just gave in after a failed slider and served up a 92 mph FB right down Broadway. 

And this is the guy that “won” a job. Pitching is in shambles. 

It was amazing to watch. Wright would get ahead of hitters with a really good pitch, then try to put him away with either a hanging breaking ball or a flat FB.

Also, that NYY lineup was a serious joke and he still labored through it giving up 8 hits with 3 HR's.  Can't wait to see him face a real MLB lineup. ughhh.

Wright, the former ECU standout, had this to say about his outing yesterday.  Perhaps adrenaline will help?  😇

“Today sucks giving up three runs, giving up all those hits. It’s the second outing in a row I’ve given up a lot of hits and the last two outings have probably been two of the best I’ve felt, executing well. But just moving forward, the season’s about to start and there’s going to be a different mentality, a different adrenaline. The guys are going to have a lot more energy and it’s going to be a good thing rolling forward.”

I witnessed Wright getting shelled by the entire B lineup of the Yanks. Every one of their hitters ripped him. Even the outs were hit hard. He may make the roster, but every flat fastball down the middle got crushed. I maybe saw one swing where he fooled someone, but that was it. He is BP fodder for any decent team we may face.

When Wright gets flustered he can't pitch. It happened in the first inning yesterday. Villar made a bad throw to first on a double play ball and that did it for Wright.

He just looks like such a big baby when someone tags him and he spins around, bends over, and punches himself in the leg three times. That's not adult behavior, much less major league behavior. If whoever is filling that spot is going to suck, I'd rather it be an adult rather than an overgrown child.

I could be wrong about this, but it seemed to me that in his first several outings Wright was really throwing downhill. Everything had a downward trajectory and was low in the zone. His last two outings, at least half his pitches have been up and flat - like the old Mike Wright. 

I'd rather watch Ynoa pitch.

I am sure you will see Ynoa and many others off of the ark.I am sure with injuries ,trades and not being able to handle the job,you will see a ton of pitchers starting.Elias hinted that you might even see one plucked off of the waiver wire right before the season starts

I was honestly surprised Ynoa got reassigned.  He seemed to be doing well in a small sample size but his stuff looked better then Wright's.  Hopefully he gets more of a chance

    • Looks like we are about even on slot amounts if Henderson's 2.3M amount is accurate.  Potential savings on both Rutschman and Watson deals.  I expect a minimum of 500K between those two deals.  Might be playing hardball with Watson.
    • This is not a surprise. One-dimensional guys don’t usually have trade value.
    • With Gunnar and AR signed, I'm content. Anything else is icing on the cake, IMO.  I do like both cake and icing. 
    • Your assumption is that the old man listened.  I disagree that he did or that AJ had any impact at all.  Peter Angelos did what Peter Angelos wanted to do.  Yes, Adam expressed very publically that he wanted Davis, Markakis, O’Day signed, David Price pursued, etc etc.   Buck said it in a more veiled and sophisticated way for PR purposes as he knew his role.  Brady never really said squat publically because he was a behind the scenes guy who had no official spokesman role.  Dan was Dan...Mr. Oblique, clearly not his call, but not somebody, after his Toronto dalliance, who was in any position to influence or advocate a different view with the old man.  Peter Angelos knew that Adam Jones was his employee, and was just a player, and knew Buck and DD and Brady were his employees too.   Period.   The deal was done by Peter Angelos and nobody else. 
    • I don't disagree with the conclusion, but I think it's overstated, and that if Mancini could maintain his current level of production, he should attract some serious intreese among contending teams (or teams that view themselves as contenders) looking to add offensive punch. If you throw Trey in with qualifying first baseman in both leagues, this season Trey would be tied for fifth in OPS, tied for seventh through 11th in HRs and 17th in RBIs. (In the latter two categories, there are two NYYs who are ahead of or tied with Trey.) He has hit better on the road than at Camden Yards. I would certainly expect his RBIs, and maybe his other stats, to improve if he played for a decent offensive team.  I think that package might appeal to some teams, though it probably would take beyond the end of July to establish the kind of consistency to attain that interest.
    • Things are falling into place nicely. If Rutschman and Henderson both sign up, that only leaves us with Watson (3), Dashbach (11), Hammer (13) and Roth (29) unsigned among our top 33 picks.  
    • Looks like the over slot money to Henderson is almost exactly what we saved on under slots so far.  Well orchestrated by Elias.  Looks like any late round over slots come down to Rutschman's deal.
