    Re: buchholz

    he's got such a nasty changeup(one of the best in the league experts say) but he doesn't throw it enough.  He's trying to much to pitch to contact.  Needs to go for the strikeout more often.  He still isn't all the way there yet, but he's getting better.  Wasn't ready out of spring training never pitched more than 4 innings.  That's why he has tired out at the end of his starts.  But I believe he's about to take off and have a great rest of the season starting in May.  He will only get better after every start. 

    By the end of the year he'll have 15 wins and a 3.35 ERA.

    Re: buchholz

    He "pitched more to contact" last season, and did quite well. It's not a matter 'missed bats'.

    He's fair game when his pitches are up in the zone. And that's plagued him in every start. Nothing wrong with his velocity. In fact, his FB command is as good as it was last year. He has a varied repertoire, and because of this refining his mechanics can be problematic.

    He mentioned he's concerned with the walks and the dingers. Tonight, he made much headway in these areas. The drawback was, too many of pitches were getting too much of the plate. Also, this is a pretty good O's line-up.

    It's just a bit of a slow start. Once he consistently finds the lower portion of the plate, he'll be as good as anybody in the SR.

    HOW IS IT CLAY'S FAULT IF THE TEAM CAN'T
    HIT A LICK, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT FALLS
    BEHIND. IN ONE OF THE MIDDLE INNINGS,
    WE GOT TWO OR THREE STRAIGHT HITS, AND
    AGON MADE OUT. "STATION TO STATION" IS
    THE RED SOX GAME, AND UNFORTUNATELY,
    IT CANNOT WIN IN THE AL EAST, AS THE BIRDS
    SHOWED. THEY JUST HAVE BETTER HITTING
    THAN THE SOX, DESPITE US GETTING AGON.
    MARKAKIS, ROBERTS , JONES, SCOTT, AND
    VLAD ARE BETTER THAN ANYTHING THE SOX
    CAN PUT UP THERE, AND IF THE BIRDS
    PITCHING IS DECENT, THEY WILL SWEEP THE
    SOX. ON SUNDAY, THE BIRDS ACTUALLY
    BEAT THE YANKS...ANDINO WAS SAFE AT
    HOME IN THE 9TH BUT THE UMP WAS GONNA
    CALL HIM OUT BECAUSE IT WAS THE YANKS
    THEY WERE PLAYING. THAT'S THE WAY
    BASEBALL IS. CALL IT ANYTHING YOU LIKE,
    BUT THE BOUNCE OF THE BALL GOES TO THE
    YANKS.

    Re: buchholz

    umm this O's Lineup has been horrible all year so far.  Derek Lee is way past his prime, so is Vlad, Markakis has diclined the past few years.  Brian Roberts is on the decline.  Mark Reynonlds hit under .200 last year.

    Re: buchholz

    Vlad didn't look old to me. Markakis has never had anything to play for beyond a contract. That could change this year. Reynolds has power to spare.
    Scott/Jones/Wieters - these guys have yet to hit their stride.
    The O's are 2nd in the A.L. in hitting with RISP (.311), which is what it's all about.

    We'll just see what their numbers are by mid-summer.

    If giving up 12 hits is "ok," then I hate to see what your standards for horrible are.

    I'm not worried yet.  His stuff is there he just has to do a better job executing it.

    I think the departure of vmart has something to do with this. They were in a groove for a while last year. Either way, he'll just get better. No worries.

    Hopefully Dice and Lackey hold up. If they do he's our #5. Who do the Yankees have at #5?

    Eckersley said just the opposite right b4 the game last night before i left for work. He said Buch wasnt pitching to contact enough and was relying too much and using his CU too much. I didnt get to see the game so I have no idea if he did. ill see it on my DVR today.

    Re: buchholz

    it appears BUCHHOLZ has developed DICE-K syndrome. slower than heck and no trust in his pitches.
    BUCHHOLZ projects no confidence on the mound and the hitters pick up on that.
    it's definitely a HEAD-PROBLEM. maybe he should remove it from a certain orifice.

    Agreed. Plus he let runners reach in every inning, and couldn't get the ground ball when he needed it, hence three SF's.
    He did go 6 2/3 though and walked just two (one intentional). The O's did hit some ropes off him however.

    Name them, because in the “was buchholz lucky” thread started by our homegrown statistician 791 the overall consensus was you should expect an increase in ERA from last year.

    Re: buchholz

    He uses the change far too much. It should be his "out" pitch. As a matter of fact, he tends to rely on the off-speed stuff whenever he gets in trouble. He has a good FB when he can locate it and keep it down. He shakes off both catcher's too much instead of trusting their pitch calling. He hasn't been a big league pitcher long enough to know what to throw in certain situations.
