The Box score isn't up yet, but the Knights lost 19-3. The Indianapolis Indians were up 9-0 after the 3rd inning. Can we please give Diaz a chance?

I am calling this right now...

DANNY WRIGHT WILL BE PUT ON THE DL, AND NEED TOMMY JOHN SURGERY AND BE OUT UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

This is speculation, but at least educated speculation as he has lost 5 miles per hour on his fastball this year...and he hardly pitched last year.

I'm ready to give a batting "T" a chance over Danny Wrong.

Torn Labrum?

You beat me to it. He's not this bad of a pitcher. Something's amiss...awry even.

I should add to my reasoning that he has given up about 100 runs in about 30 innings.

He was never that great, but he isn't THIS bad.

LOL! I got my son "Pants" one of those Jr. Hitaway hitting devices you see advertised on TV. Maybe I'll name it Danny Wright.

Hopefully he finds himself and/or recovers from his injury (if he indeed is), but at the very least this seals any notion of him being the guy getting a call back for the fifth spot. It really was never in the cards, but for those were worried, rest easy.

Yeah, but Danny Wright has major league experience. Can Feliz Diaz say the same? :)

LMAO!!!!

So Danny Wright gave up a homer to a guy who wears his shades at the plate during a night game? I can believe it.

lets not let danny's failure distract us from the fact that jose managed to boost his average with a hit tonight.

.065

AND...

He only had TWO, thats right- only two strike outs!

I am being dead serious-

What the hell is Jose's problem? What is happening to him in the minors shouldn't be happening to guys in high school. Seriously. I realize it's a slump, but the guy isn't making contact...is anyone concerned?

A lot of people are and they shouldn't be. He'll come back and not miss a beat. He doesn't need to show anything to get 'called up.' We're just waiting for the most logical time to bring him up and he knows it. He's probably just not trying.

I as much as anyone else here doesnt like Danny Wrong anymore after his piss poor performance this season so far. But after seeing this, I have to think something is wrong. Maybe he does need some kind of surgery because I cant comprehend any reason how he could fail so badly after a relatively successful season 2 years ago. I dont get it.

Is that the same Courtney Duncan who gave up the 10th inning grand slam to Carlos Lee against the Cubs a few years ago?

Not trying? Isn't the man a professional? Has he no pride?

Maybe he's trying to hard and pressing. Maybe having Ozzie as his manager and having had a rash of errors to start the season and watching Juan Uribe tearing it up are all playing into that.

No one knows what is causing his problems so to condemn him for being unprofessional or having no pride seems pretty silly.

Once again gang some of you are twisting words to make your point.

My comment about minor league stats are meaningless was in references to the idiots who keep posting that Valentin is 1-19 in Charlotte...he's done...he's no good...trade him.

Sure, we can keep Willie Harris in the lineup everyday! (What's his career batting average? Hmmmm...)

It's partially my fault for not being clear but when someone has as much experience as Valentin you can not look at a minor league rehab and draw any conclusions. That's idioic.

frankly, i am sure jose will do fine when called up, but he is a frustrating player to have in the line up this year.

for me its the 4 errors in 11 games for the $5 million shortstop.

or maybe that in his first 11 games, he had more strike-outs than hits.

his performance in the minors isn't the only thing that makes me nervous.

2 IP 9 ER. his ERA is over 40! i think its safe to say that rauch or diaz should get the 5th starter job

Thank God somebody else sees this. If Valentin does come back, he should bat no higher than 7th.

A #2 hitter with more strikeouts than hits is not good.

Let's just hope Diaz gets called up regardless and Wright's pitching--good or bad--becomes irrelevant. Let's focus on Diaz now because he has a better chance to be the 5th guy on May 14th than Danny

Diaz, Rauch, Cotts, it doesn't matter. Any of those would be good options IMO.

I agree with you on those three, but i would rank them in this order:

1. Diaz (because he's been lights out and can step in without any transition time)
2. Rauch (He's been pretty darn good, just not as good as Diaz.)
3. Cotts (He's already in a bullpen role so it would be a little tough to make the switch at this point)

3. Cotts (He's already in a bullpen role so it would be a little tough to make the switch at this point)

Diaz has never faced MLB hitting, whereas Rauch has had some success when healthy and Cotts is doing quite well now.

It's early in the season and Cotts has made some appearances in long relief. I don't think it would take anything extra to have him ready to go 80+ pitches by the next rotation for the 5th spot.

Frankly, with 2 lefties in the rotation already, I wouldn't mind seeing Rauch get the start. Pitching in Charlotte isn't helping anything and it's getting closer to the "Now or Never" point. Time to find out what he can do. If they had the patience with Rauch as they have had with Wright, he'd be in our rotation now with a season+ of starting under his belt IMO...

I'm sure. How is it not being a fan of your team if you dont like all of the players on your team and want the best for your team? Also, what kind of Sox fan isn't griping about something?

I see your point but you don't wish that a person on your team does bad enough to be let go. I'm sure if Wright had his rathers he would have dominated every game.

I hope he finds himself in AAA.

Remember there were many posts earlier about getting rid of Shingo and Show.

very true, but danny wright has stunk it up for 2 years now. he gets torched everytime he throws the ball. shingo and show got their chance and have pitched well. dannys gotten several chances and has blown it almost everytime. maybe its time to send danny the way of jim parque and bobby howry, out the damn door!
