    Who feels bad for Chase Wright?

    I agree with him, and so I will quote what Jglaubman said in tonights (4/22) game thread.

    C'mon, this guy was not supposed to be NEAR the Major Leagues this year.
    He should be in NJ (or whever he lives, in Texas actually) right now. Not Boston pitching against the Red Sox.

    Now, many will say they don't feel bad because once you are in the majors pitching, then you should be able to handle the pressure.

    I disagree with a statement like that. Wright hasn't pitched above Double A. That being said, sure, it's his fault, but it's a shame at that. He shouldn't have been in Boston tonight.

    I hope Chase isn't scarred for life because of this. I could see him being a decent pitcher in the majors, when he is really ready for that level.

    So, anyone else feel bad for Chase?

    what a stupid thread, we know what happened... there's a game on thread and it's obvious it sucked, but to start a thread just to ask if you feel bad for him?

    gimme a break.

    I don't understand how it's a "stupid thread", but whatever.

    You can have a discussion on it. Maybe not a long one, but you can have one about it.

    Why should I feel bad for him? He set a record tonight. How many pitchers can say they've ever done that?

    I think someone should have told him to throw a pitch or two in the dirt after the first two homers. I'm not one for throwing at someone. After all, the current batter is not at fault if the two previous guys hit homers.

    Do I feel bad for him. Only that he'll be taking buses and trains for a while now instead of planes. He's on his way down as of tomorrow.

    Hopefully he doesn't let it get to him. He should realize how blessed he is to have had the opportunity to pitch in Fenway as part of the greatest rivalry in sports history. No, it didn't go well, but neither did Melky in 2005....

    Why feel bad? you should be proud of his courage. You know he is not at this level, he was doomed before he took the mound. He still went there and pitched.
    You should feel bad for the team why Wright is the only guy could start.

    Re: Who feels bad for Chase Wright?

    I do not. He should have put one up and in on one of the guys. He sees 2 of our guys get hit, he gives up back to back HR's, and he doesn't go up and in on one of their guys?

    I don't feel bad for him. I didn't expect him to dominate, but 4 straight homers? That's an embarrassment, especially since he had a start under his belt.

    He should have just drilled Varitek, after giving up the third HR.

    Not me. 4 straight homers. That's bad, even for a AA pitcher

    Re: Who feels bad for Chase Wright?

    Nope. It didn't kill him, so I'm thinking it might make him stronger.

    I think people have way to high expectations on this kid. C'mon man he's a spot starter and has made ONE start. He only had two starts in AA. I expected him to get hit hard. Anything else would have been a bonus. To put those expectations on a kid that has made only 3 starts above A ball level is unfair.

    After the 2nd homer he should have drilled someone. Is that wrong? Maybe, but it would have worked.

    I'm pretty sure a 78-year-old elderly man using a walker could navigate his way through a major-league lineup without giving up four consecutive home runs.

    I don't feel sorry for him because he wasn't smarten enough to keep at least one of those drives in the same zip code.

    I don't feel bad for someone who gets to play baseball professionally for the Yankees.

    Suzyn just said on the WCBS postgame that Wright will get another start.

    Well tonight's performance will likely Chase him Wright back to the minors.

    "Smarten"? Before insulting someone else's intelligence, it might not be a bad idea to check your spelling. Rocks and glass houses, ya know. The player-bashing in the game threads is bad enough, is it really necessary to carry it over here?
