Danny Wright felt no pain after throwing 30 pitches in a inter-squad game on Thursday.

I would start Wright in Triple A to start the season to see if he can pitch pain free and effective for 3 or 4 starts and let Josh Stuart have that 5th spot for now. Don't want to take any risks.

I particularly liked this quote from the article:

Wright admitted afterward that he was throwing "almost'' at full speed. No radar gun was used for his outing.

"I wasn't going to bring a gun out there and see what his velocity was because that would have probably made him want to pitch to the gun like he had something to prove,'' Cooper said. "The ball out of his hand visibly was good enough.''

Cooper is a wise, wise man.

Almost the anti-Nardi. How did those two co-exist in the same organization for so long. It seems the minor league philosophy would have been in direct conflict with the major league philosophy. Maybe Nardi wasn't bright enough to understand.

That's good news, but I'm still far from optimistic. He wasn't throwing his hardest and he didn't throw any breaking balls. He has had only two S.T. outings and he was shelled both times. He is scheduled to start on April 6th, just over two weeks from now. I just don't see him being ready in two weeks. I think we're going to see Stewart start the year with the big club. Can anybody out there give me reasons (other than his performance so far this spring) to be hopeful that Stewart can at least be adequate at the MLB level now?

I think that would be the best move the Sox make with Wright.

No need to rush Danny and maybe Stuart shows what he can do at the MLB level.

Loiaza's ST really took the pressure off Manuel to find a
replacement for Wright's spot.

The 5th starter will only get a couple off starts in the first 50 games of the season.

Cooper comes off as a no-nonsense, pull no punches type of person. Which is exactly what this team needs for a pitching coach. He's done a great job of correcting what Contreras screwed up.
