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

Ok gotcha thanks that makes sense. Either way still not the type of season/development we wanted to see.

A double, two walks, two hits batsemen, 2K--could it be that playing conditions were the cause?  Was he slipping on the mound?  Unable to fully extend with his legs?  The umps may have looked at how bad it was and used his inability to pitch under the conditions as the reason to postpone the game.  I don't like his Frederick season, but I think that start should not be seen as the real him.

What would you like the real Blaine Knight to be seen as?   It's tough to figure the dominance at Delmarva with the ineptitude at Frederick.  It doesn't seem like most prospects have quite the same difficulty with that jump.

Yeah, that doesn’t make sense. That is about what he has been all season. So, right now, that is the real Blaine Knight.

We can hope that he has a good offseason program. Start with Frederick next season, put together some good early season starts and make the jump to Bowie around June. That would be good season for him.

He wasn’t nearly as good as the results in Delmarva and isn’t as bad as the results in Frederick. Plus older hitters taking more advantage his fringe to below average command (which was apparent in Delmarva) and going from a pitcher’s park to an extreme hitter’s park.

He’s flashed legit stuff, but I think he’s a reliever.

    • Oh, I don't know high dollar guys with multiple years of earnings, will invested...enough for multiple lifetimes decide not to play...could it be that this is a cut and paste season, 60 games, made up divisions, basically ST exhibitions...3 to 4 months quarantined with teammates (as I understand it), away from family, none of the going out with teammates to bars and eateries, none of the camaraderie with teams in the clubhouse, dugouts, bullpens....no fans, a pretty crappy working environment IMO...for us this is a game, when you are at that stage of your career it is a business..the joy of the game maybe teammate interaction and not as much the game.
    • My guess is that most players will feel this is a personal decision that each player must make for himself, and that they won’t hold any hard feelings against those who made a different decision than they did.    
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 Jim Palmer tossed a three-hitter for his 12th win of the season as he led the Orioles to a 2-0 shutout of the Detroit Tigers.  Palmer also struck out 7 and walked 3. Palmer allowed singles to Mickey Stanley, Russ Nagelson and Bill Freehan. For the Birds, Don Buford went 3 for 4 with 1 run scored and Boog Powell went 1 for 3 with 2 RBI. BOX SCORE
    • Wish we could watch AR at C, Diaz in LF, Kjerstad in RF, and Mountcastle at 1B. Who knows what the new player control rules will be anyways. 
    • Weird for a guy who posted just tell us when on Twitter.  Anyone who posted that better play. 
    • Never thought of computer viruses for Robo imps. I bet the Astros already have guys on this.
    • You would have to ask them their reasoning, but on the outside looking in, if they’ve already got plenty of money, why exert themselves and take the risk, which is very real, for a fractional season that will always have an asterisk on it, even if a team wins the World Series. Yes, Price will be losing ~ $20 million, Trout a bit more, But haven’t they reached the point where it’s just numbers?  The younger guys have tremendous incentive to play, because they are playing for future opportunities. jmho
