He got ahead of hitters, which is very encouraging to see. Hopefully he can iron out his problems by his next start.

You know its great that he did this, but this was his 11th start this season. He should have been doing this at the begining of the year. This is not the time to be looking at little positives. The Sox once again played a playoff contender and once again looked pitiful......

Isn't Wright in hs pattern of 2 good starts, than 2 bad starts? He's right on schedule, he's had 2 good starts in a row, now it's time for his 2 bad starts in a row. Sheesh, what's up with that?!?!?

So your sayin the BoSox and Mariners aren't playoff contenders. I don't understand that statement.

Yeah, he did get ahead of them. That's what made me even more mad tonight, because he'd go 0-2 and then walk the guy, or get 1-2 and then get pounded. Those are the times when your location/command really helps you. The pitch high in the zone that looks too close to take, or the curve that could break back into the zone but you don't know. Those are out pitches, and D. Wrong didn't have one tonight. When he started trying to throw those pitches, he missed so bad that the hitters didn't have to guess.

To me, he pitched just like Ritchie - too much over the plate, too little (way to little) inside, or at the shoulders, etc.. In the first inning, he Kd Ventura with a high fastball - never saw him go back that way.

But, this was the first time i saw him pitch, and it looks like he has good velocity - he's young. I like him.

Excluding the godawful first inning, Danny pitched well afterward. He struck out quite a few guys and looked good after he got the blow-up out of his system. He's too predictable. Rooney was calling his pitches before he made them. Yes, Wright got ahead of hitters and then got spanked. He was up 0-2 on one of the two first-inning walks and it turned into ball four a few pitches later. He gets ahead very well and then suddenly he can't get them out and ends up throwing up a cookie on 3-2 or walking them. I just don't get the inconsistencies. I understand that he's young and that most of our staff is, but how can they all be so inconsistent and in a pattern too!? Ginter looked awesome out of the pen. Two perfect innings. I thought that JM used the bullpen perfectly. Nice job guy!

Pounded? The two doubles in the first were as soft as doubles come, 5 bouncers down the line that found a hole. He really only made a couple of mistakes, but the Yankees timely hitting was head and shoulders above the Sox tonight. That was the whole difference in the game. They scored 5 runs with two outs in the first, meanwhile the Sox had 8 baserunners the first 3 innings and scored 1 run...

We must have seen different doubles in the first inning. The one by Jeter was past Jose before he even moved, and the same for the one that went by PK. The balls were hit very hard, just not elevated.

Maybe I missed it, I was watching on a smaller screen than I am used to and I was tired. They looked like well place grounders, but I may have been wrong...
