Maybe too soon to ask about Mike Wright

He put it in the same article.  That is his decision of contradict himself.

He didn’t contradict himself. 

This is his second prediction. I think he is allowed to change his mind.

Ok, I see. So his 2nd prediction says he needs 4 starters to start 5 games in a row in the first week of the season.

As you correctly pointed out he was wrong about when they needed a 5th starter. He is way off. No idea what he was thinking.

He’s showing how the picture has changed so far since the outset of spring training.  

You’ve clearly made up your mind about Trezza.    That’s fine, but this particular criticism isn’t justified.

I would love to change my opinion.  All he has to do in report correct facts.   

Oh and maybe learn how to read a schedule that any 8 year old baseball fan can do.

I never knew we had so much invested in the beat reporters.

Hey @wildcard maybe it's spring training for these guys, too.

Just looks like screwing up to me.

I'd love to say I can see why Wright has not allowed a run this spring, but I'm here to tell you that from my perspective, it's a mirage. 

...

Oh, and if hear one more "analyst" talk about Arrieta and Wright in the same breath I will throw up. Wright is not going anywhere and becoming Arrieta. 

 

 

Great post. I'm assuming you're spot on. 

It's easier to believe that someone with filthy stuff will make a sudden jump than someone like Wright. Arrieta, for all of his flaws, always had pretty electric stuff. Wright did for like a day in spring training the first year he was invited. 

I still think he makes the 25 man, but that's a reflection on our roster.

Thanks, agree on both. There's room for him as the long man in the bullpen if he doesn't win a rotation spot if the Orioles choose to see how that cutter plays throughout the season.

Haven't we seen enough of Mike Wright already... I mean we know what he is.  He is a career 5.75 ERA pitcher, He BABIP was .344 which umm stinks.  He walks too many guys and can't get groundballs.

BABIP for pitchers is heavily influenced by defense and luck.

As Tony said, there is probably room for him in the pen so there's no harm seeing if a new cutter has changed anything. But I wouldn't complain if he was gone either.

We all have. Elias and Hyder haven't.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've seen several players call him that...

The first part is correct, although over a large enough sample, the luck part diminishes.

I do want to point out that it's not a new cutter, he threw it all last year with lackluster results. It may be a slightly altered cutter, but not new.

    • Yeah, I like Von Eyk. You’re right about transferring weight to add velocity. I might have him drop a little more at foot strike, but he’s close already. The CU and CH look like plus pitches. Love the arm speed you mention at the same rate when he throws the CH. I like that Detmers has already been on the big stage with Team USA. I think his superior command is linked to the poise he displays on the mound. A couple added ticks definitely increases his profile. I like the HS kid, Abel, too. My philosophy on HS picks has evolved somewhat. So, not sure I’m willing to roll the dice on one as easily unless they’re advanced. I’ll give Ginn and Meyer a look later on.
