Checks in on the Tigers game...

Tigers are too strong for us to catch. The suck is strong in this one.

Bundy has issues.

I’ve said often that everybody in the major leagues as a fine athlete and a periodically fine player. Except for the careless guys, for whom there is no cure.

Bundy is just inconsistent, and that is the true sign of the mediocre player. He’s an OK player for right now, but he’s never going to be on a successful team.

However, he might be a perfect “change of scenery” guy. I would love to see him traded, And I wonder if a new team could make him a more consistently good pitcher.

His loss of velocity which has not returned has made him a different pitcher...plus his flyball HR rates, plus his periodic loss of command....there are many pitchers who likely could provide what Bundy will going forward .

Here is where we all were in 2011 Baseball America comp article on draftees...so sad Dylan got hurt...

Dylan Bundy, SP (Baltimore)

Comp: Roy Oswalt

Anything short of full-fledged ace-dom would be a disappointment for the best high-school pitcher in the 2011 draft.

Perhaps that’s an unfair burden to place on 18-year-old Dylan Bundy, but the kid is too damn good to deny it. When you throw an easy 98 with secondary pitches developed well beyond your years, there’s no stopping the runaway freight train of high hopes.

At 6’1” and an already-filled-out 200 lbs., Bundy doesn’t fit the typical power-pitcher mold. Much like the similarly undersized Roy Oswalt, the Oklahoma prep star generates tremendous power from his lower half.

Between the two, Bundy is the harder thrower. In the scouting paradigm, that places his ceiling even higher than the former Houston No. 1.

Eighteen years old. Hasn’t pitched a professional inning. Higher ceiling than Roy Oswalt.

Let that percolate.

No hit by this guy....good grief....unacceptable.

Left-hander Thomas Pannone is making his 27th appearance this season, but only his fifth start. He’s carrying a 5.98 ERA and 1.430 WHIP in 49 2/3 innings.

Lucky there! Wilkerson was out by 5 feet at 3rd.

On replay it was more like 8 or 10 feet.

 

 

Trey with the Earl Special!!!! :awesome:
