And the similarities are almost the same. Two pitchers with similar pedigree’s who were thrust into the post season with a lot of pressure, responsibility to shoulder. Bauer is starting off the ALDS series against Boston, due to #1 starter Corey Kluber needing the extra day to rehab from that groin pull. Speaking of shoulders, let’s hope Trevor Bauer’s holds up better than Jared Wright’s did. But before the shoulder let him down, Jared Wright was just an unstoppable force from the mound. And an awful lot of fun to watch.
Thanks to si.com, HERE is a look back at Jared Wright’s coming out party during the 1997 season.
Have a great day and happy almost Friday.
