I was just watching the game and thinking about Garland's success and I got to thinking, I wonder how Wright is doing these days. Wasn't he trying to comeback? Has anybody heard anything.

It's funny. He and Garland always seemed to be around the same level. I wonder how he'd be pitching now if he were still in the league.

For all the abuse he took, I liked him. He always handled himself in a professional manner, and took his lumps gracefully.

I wish Danny well, wherever he is. :smile:

I liked him too. I think his last year with the team he was pitching through a severe injury. How can anybody not respect that?

Yeah, I'm kind of disappointed we never got to see the 'Danny Wright for Closer' experiment come into fruition. Then again, that may be a blessing in disguise.

He is currently pitching for the Tacoma Rainiers (AAA- Seattle Mariners). He is currently on the DL...

No run support? I don't think so. He had a very difficult time finding the strike zone.

He won 14 games in 2002 with an ERA over 5. You need lots of run support to win that many games with that ERA.

I like Danny Wright for one reason. Whenever Cub fans bring up Kerry Wood and his greatness, I just let him know his career season win total is the same as Danny Wright's... That shuts him real quick.

Maybe I'm confusing my dissapointing Sox farmhands with each other, but I think Wright was rushed.

Are you kidding me?

He won 14 games with an ERA over 5. I do not miss him.

I wish wright well, but he scared me when he was pitching. Some days he was finding the zone, and others it seemed like any pitch out of his hand could end up at the backstop.

I used to be a bigger wright fan than garland fan (he initially looked more promising I thought) but he ended terribly. My heart is thankful he is not pitching for us anymore.

Danny Wright had an absolutely nasty diving fastball. He just never had another pitch to set it up. I always thought a cutter would have been the natural next pitch. It looks the same to the batter as it approaches, but breaks in a different direction.
