Dylan Bundy TONIGHT 5/14

Well, if this was a bad day, then we should be glad about it.

This. Although my post did appear that he didn't play particularly well, his stuff was still electric, despite it being an "off night". We've got a great prospect here.

Funny note: His pickoff throws to first must be 80+ MPH. The crack of the first baseman's glove sounded downright painful.

A lot of the Lakewood hitters were swinging, he just didn't seem to miss their bats. The pitches they took were mainly balls, and it looked like the zone was pretty fair. Again, he just missed the zone quite a bit tonight.

Also, great TTTP ;)

If he missed the zone quite a bit tonight, why were there 0 BB's? Couldn't have been missing by much. I understand he might have been wild in the strike zone, ie. not hitting his spots exactly where he wanted to. But, he couldn't have been too much outside the zone with zero walks.

I have seen him D. Bundy pitch a couple of times. He is an incredible talent. I did not see him last night, but I listened. And it seemed like batters had a swing-at-everything approach. It wasn't like that when I saw him early in the season, but in Charleston batters were swinging at high fastballs, low fastballs, just trying to put it in play. You can tell he is missing spots because the catcher is setting up in one spot and the ball ends up in another, but he gets away with it. I think he should move up. He won't have to make adjustments until people can actually make him pay for mistakes. They can't at this level. And I have a feeling he will adjust quickly even when he moves up. He is a very special pitcher.

I have no idea if it was the case last night, but the above is not true at this level. He could absolutely get plenty of swings-and-misses on pitches out of the zone by a fair amount. Most of these hitters are that overmatched, and need to cheat that much on the fastball.

He is one or two more starts at Delmarva. I have no idea why he ONLY struck out 3 or gave up so many (2) hits. Maybe it had something to do with going 5. Maybe not. I guess he might look human once he gets up to Frederick. Maybe not.

Just an off night I think. I'm going to guess the weather wasn't great either, cause it was CRAP here (90 miles away).

I was wondering if he "toned it down a bit" early on knowing he was going to go 5 for the first time. Either way, it's nice having silly issues like this to complain about with a draft pick, isn't it?

Does he have a nice move to first?

Perhaps I was expecting too much, I just wasn't expecting him to get to 3 balls on anyone :D

@Bobmc: To be honest, I don't know what a great pickoff move looks like, and at this point I don't remember what exactly his looked like. I have video of an entire at bat that I'll post later if I can figure out how to get it uploaded!

I guess, efficient, accurate, deceptive, has baserunner leaning - runner stays close to bag because of his deception - stuff like that.

Regarding the question of an "off-night," It may have been "off" for Dylan, but it was about as good as it gets here. He may have had a couple of un-settling events, but nothing that would seem to produce an "off" day. Humans are human and performance varies. I believe that Dylan tweeted earrlier about a water problem with his appartment and I am sure he wanted to look good for Bobby. As good as he is, his best is yet to come. Let him learn his craft so that he raches his full potential. I believe he can pitch in the majors now, but he will be much better long term if he is allowed to learn the ins and outs of pitching under less pressure. Karl of Delaware and I will post his pitching chart tomorrow to answer questions about velocity cocnsistentcy.
