    Personally i'd rather reward the guy who breezed through 8 innings.
    I just think it sends a bad message when you tell your staff that no matter how well they do, you are taking the ball out of their hands when they hit 100 pitches.

    Whatever, minor complaint, i've moved on. I'll live. Good win today.

    This team is so soft with its pitchers.
    On the other hand, Gardy might have used a guy for the ninth AND a guy for the eighth, and this is why he feels he needs to carry 13 relievers. I thought 8 IN was just right.

    Good to hear.

    Yup, it is always wise to know the limitations of your tools.

    Brought up the Field view in game day, and yeah, that is an awful lot of outs to the left side of the infield.

    Thanks for the additional info.

    I guess I don't really consider 106 pitches through 8 breezing through, but whatever. He did his job.

    It's April 12th and it's cool outside (cooler than the middle of summer). I'm fine with taking a starting pitcher out after 8 innings with 106 pitches. However, if it's the middle of July, perhaps you send him out in the 9th and let him close the game out himself if he's feeling up to it.
