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

    • Monday. vs. Royals.   Whichever Orioles pitcher is starting.  3rd inning.  Hunter Dozier hits it.
    • Oh man!  Big doings!!!
    • Scott Nashville is a musical town. Most people looking to make it as a singer, songwriter, or producer flock to either Nashville or LA. Nashville is diverse but there is plenty of country music concentration.  So ts not surprising that the artist reside in Nashville and it's likely the same booking agent was used to book them all. I think you are looking for coincidences that are probably not relevant. The fact that the Orioles are hosting country music events will make them no more or less popular in Nashville. As I mentioned a few times, I spent 12 years of my life in the music industry. The time included trips to LA, NY, and more visits to Nashville than I can count on my hands. Just my 2 cents!  
    • I’ll say not necessarily.    It’s more about the quality of the performance than the former draft ranking.    
    • The tie breaker is the prior year draft order so the Orioles win all ties.  
    • To directly answer your question about Herb: he isn’t replacing Kremer in the Bowie rotation.    He’s already in the Bowie rotation, sporting a 2.25 ERA in four starts after being demoted to Bowie when Zimmermann was promoted to Norfolk.    It’s Sedlock who is taking Kremer’s spot, after pitching mostly relief and artificially short starts since his promotion to Bowie on July 17.    Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing how he rises to the challenge.    He did a nice job yesterday, 1 run in 5 IP.   He should get three more starts before the season ends.     Like I said, it’s a balance.    Kremer has pitched well enough to earn a promotion and has a lot of AA innings under his belt.   Getting him a head start on being ready to move up to the majors next year makes sense.    Sedlock has pitched very well this year, is behind schedule due largely to injuries and it benefits him to be in Bowie’s rotation.   Does the switch from Kremer to Sedlock hurt Bowie’s playoff chances?   Yes, marginally.  In this case, the developmental benefits seem to outweigh that.    The balance might be different if another set of players were involved.  Good luck to Kremer and Sedlock down the stretch.   
    • Oh I misunderstood. I understood the comment to mean he was getting his MLB pay.
