PowerShell Format-Table Width Help

I am trying to specify the width of the output table but trying all of the Format-Table properties specifying the width don't seem to work.  Below is the command I am trying to output.  I'm mostly concerned with the Message column.

Get-EventLog -Verbose -log "Application" -EntryType Information -After (Get-Date).Date | Format-Table -AutoSize -Wrap

-autosize does not work well here. You will indeed have to provide the width of each column here to get a reasonable result. This should get you started, but it only shows two of the columns, so you will need to expand to your needs:
Get-EventLog -Verbose -log "Application" -EntryType Information -After (Get-Date).Date | 
Format-Table -wrap `
  @{label="TimeWritten"; width= 10; e={$_.TimeWritten}},
  @{label="Message"    ; width=100; e={$_.message    }}
