Chris Ray has one of the worst deliveries I have ever seen from a MLB pitcher. He has terrible control and one of the most high-effort throwing motions I've seen since the days of Rocky Coppinger. I pretty much consider it luck when he manages to find the strike zone, and hate when he's called into a game. I was at the game last night and watched as he once again blew a lead. Brad Bergeson pitched a decent game for 6 innings last night and then Ray relieves him in the 7th. He comes in and gives up a run with a combination of poor control and no movement on his fast ball. I don't know what the solution is for this guy, but I'm tired of watching him blow games/leads for the Orioles. Luckily JJ came in and pitched a decent 8th and the O's scored the go ahead run to win 5-4.
I'm interested to hear the thoughts of other Orioles fans on this topic...as many seem to think this guy can pitch.
