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.

    • Is that true? I remember that being part of the negotiations but I dont think it ended up being part of the deal since MLB unilaterally set the number of games. MLBTR seems to think there are still qualifying offers and so does Twitter, based on my searching. Mets beat writer seems to think a qualifying offer is still an option and nobody is correcting her, and since she is a woman on the internet writing about sports, I imagine she would be corrected by a million dudes if she was wrong.
    • I don’t disagree with anything you said, and I’m grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But lemme play devil’s advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One trait of greatness is consistency. Over 60, that is less important than over 162. Our starters and our pen appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162 because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level, but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn’t help the best, because the best doesn’t need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it’s not out of the question.  
    • This was a nice read.  And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.  There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.  As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order. 
    • What does that mean? What's the cost of Wildcard's optimism? Also, I don't think what I said constituted being negative.  That's an honest appraisal of the team.    Not much of what we are seeing looks sustainable.
