Agreed. Both of those guys are now 27 yrs old. That's not "young" in baseball. And at 27, neither guy has been able to stand up to mlb hitters. I don't think I'm prematurely giving up on them. If they were 6 yrs younger, I'd say there's a chance. 

 

I'd roll out Ynoa, Lee or Aquino before I'd try these two "never will be's".  You know Buck will try and shove Wright down our throats though.  He loves that guy.  He has taken TJs place.

I posted an article about Brady. Wright plays an interesting role in that article. Brady compared him to Britton. He said Britton was a guy whose star was dimmed from coaching that was compatible with his talents. Once things got straightened out, Britton became who he is. Brady thinks Wright was suffering that same fate, and believes McDowell will get him on track.

 

I'm not sure how much I believe that, but I like the idea that a switch will be flipped.

I hope this is the case, but who fixed Britton???  The same guys who screwed up Wright, eh??   We are on a slippery slope here with Brady.  Guys who are buddies  go running to Brady when they aren't cutting the mustard and its the coaches fault.  And it can be argued Brady has unchecked power because he is tight with Angelos and Baby A no. 2.  But Buck and DD seem to have taken this arrangement well or they are afraid to speak out.

I'm still not sure how to take this dynamic.  If the results are there I'm good.

The hot hand is whoever Buck says it is.  If wright is still upright come 30 Mar, he be the man.  McDowell has fixed him, LOL.
