Given the history of pitching prospects in this organization and the importance of the player to this organization, I don't blame anyone for being nervous honestly.
What I'm concerned about is the team has been pretty good about fixing mechanical stuff relatively quickly and that this is now a pattern dating back to last year and all through spring training and now into the current season. That's a pretty large sample without improvement.
Baseball can be cruel. I think the adversity will make him stronger but nonetheless he has some stuff to figure out. He doesn’t look confident and under control out there. That is odd to me and something I haven't seen from him. Something is eating at him (mentally or physically). Hope he bounces back quickly.
I can’t take credit for this @Morgan423commissioned this poem from artificial intelligent (Chat GPT, I presume) and posted in the Opening Day game thread. I got a kick out of it and thought it deserved a wider audience. Enjoy!
Frazier to Mateo to Mountcastle,
The Orioles turning a double play,
Like a graceful dance on the infield,
In perfect sync they move and sway.
A flash of leather, a pivot and throw,
The ball flies across the diamond so,
And just like that, two outs are made,
The crowd erupts in a joyous parade.
Oh, how sweet the sound of success,
As the Orioles put on a masterclass,
In the art of turning a double play,
Frazier, Mateo, Mountcastle, hooray!
Coming soon: Chat GPT writing the lineup.
