That's what Brandon Inge said after he struck out swinging on a 3-2 changeup against 24-year-old Chase Wright today. He pitched admirably against Detroit's full ML lineup, going six innings with three earned runs. Wright was the single-A Florida State League Most Valuable Pitcher in 2006, posting this line: 119.2 ip, 12-3, 1.89 era, 100 ks, 43 bb, 1 HR. He'll be a starter in double-A Trenton this year and could move quickly through the organization, especially considering his left-handedness and the recent injuries to several of the Yanks top minor league pitchers (notably Chris Garcia, Mark Melancon and J.B. Cox). I expect he'll hit the Bronx as Mike Myers' replacement no later than mid-2008.
