I look and see a lot of good pitchers getting lit up for 10 runs and then I see alot of no names pitching really well.
Pitchers seem to do a lot more testing/playing at 50% normal during ST.
Don't alot of pitchers spend entire ST games working on a certain technique or pitch?
Anyways I guess I'm just saying don't put too much into ST stats especially when its pitchers we are talking about.
Bad stretches in the Spring I usually take with a grain of salt, but good stretches often carry right over into April. Even still, I usually only weigh a pitcher's Spring stats when deciding between two pitchers of equal value.
Unless of course the 10 runs you're talking about is Benitez last night and I must admit, I cut bait and ran.
Dumped him for Foulke.
It might be a huge mistake, but I'm prepared to live with it if I'm wrong.
