Does a long half inning by the offense benefit the pitcher waiting to get back in because he gets to rest or does it make the pitcher cold. :-?

Depends on the length of the inning really. If it goes quite a bit and they score 8 or so runs, it isn't as beneficial to the pitcher as they can get stiff from not throwing.

usually if a pitcher is sharp to start of with and he watches his own offense have a huge inning he'll lose that sharpness. it's not exactly a science, but the pitcher gets a little stiff, knows he has a big lead to work with so he doesn't have to be quite as sharp and can go after batters he wouldn't normally try to strike out. obviously this doesn't happen every time, but i'd say it's more often than not.

What I hate is when the pitcher is involved in creating that big inning and has to run the bases. Invariably he gets tired very soon and gets hammered.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

Varies from one guy to the next. Although I would think that the earlier a marathon inning occurs, the less impact it would have on more guys.

I'll speak from experience here. I used to be a starter and, to be honest, I had better success the shorter the break between innings was. If you are pitching well and you are in the rhythm of the game, you want the ball in your hand every pitch. I almost wish I could pitch my seven innings, let the opponents compile their runs, and then let my hitters hit for seven straight innings. That said, it is always re-assuring when your team puts up runs and it allows you to relax more on the mound. I found I made less mistake pitches when pitching with a comfortable lead than I did in close games where I was pressing with accuracy or velocity.

For the most part the same is true in the major leagues, except to a lesser extent. I know that in many rain delays, a starter will be removed due to fatigue even though he may have only thrown 50 pitches. I can see why a pitcher may become fatigued, but when you have played baseball for as long as major leaguers have, I'm sure they are plenty used to it.

So the A's staff must be pumped up.

They pitch, sit for about 5 minutes to wait for their offense to go scoreless and then get back out there.
