Am I still waiting for my fifth cup of coffee to kick in, or is it really the case that Cam Bishop, Matthias Dietz and Blaine Knight, in a combined 24 decisions for Frederick so far, have 1 win?

Remember, W's are a meaningless stat in 2019.

That seems to be true, but I hate that idea. I still think winning the game means something.

Is this something we did ala trying to mess with Sedlock's delivery, or is he a dud? Watched some of his tape from college and everything looked good.

He was excellent at Delmarva.  Doubt they made a significant change as soon as he got to Frederick UNLESS they insisted he mix in more of his secondaries.  Other than that it's hard to explain how poor he's been at Frederick.  Maybe an injury he's trying to pitch through?

I seem to recall he made some changes to delivery on his own initiative a couple of offseason ago after getting bad advice from a private coach.

Knight wasn't as bad today, but is currently in line for the L. 2 runs but only 2 k's in 5 IP. 

I'm still nowhere near as down on him as many here. I read Luke's stuff and understand his perceived limitations, but he's still a kid with a decent chance to be a ML pitcher IMO. It's total speculation, but I think he's in the middle of a transition of some kind (e.g., using pitches that aren't his strengths more often). I think this is all part of his typical non-linear development and we'll start to see better results this year or next.

I think he's transitioning from a league in which his experience let him overpower hitters to one in which it doesn't and he's more forced to rely on quality pitches.

I think that's some of it for sure, but am actually assuming there's more to the story. Time will tell, I guess.

Knight had his best night in a very long time: 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K’s.   Coupled with his pretty decent start last outing, maybe he’s made some adjustments.    I’ll be watching to see if he makes further progress in August.

Knight had his best stuff of the season  tonight I think. He was 93-94 t95 with riding armside life. The curveball was particularly sharp and he threw some good sliders and changeups too. Command was below average at best though. I don't think he hit a spot all night.

Knight started today but only pitched one inning. Gave up a hit (double), 2 walks, 2 ER and struck out 2. Also hit 2 batters. 31 pitches, only 15 strikes. 

Very disappointing season to say the least. 

Is his stuff just not there? Or are the Os tinkering with his mechanics, etc?

I never bought into the hype with him.  Just didn't look like he had the raw stuff.  I do admit I thought he'd get a bit higher up the ladder before it showed to this extent.

He started last night and the game was suspended after the 1st and resumed today.
