I don't disagree, but I think that managers don't like to think about pitch counts when their pitchers are "in a groove". Mark Prior, Pedro, anyone, are different pitchers when their pitch counts are high.

I also think that pitchers on 3 days rest are okay, but for about 20-30 less pitches than usual.

I hope I'm wrong because I want a lot for Beckett.

Beckett might start feeling the fatigue soon, but McKeon should be able to pull him at the right time.

Jay, why are you getting sick of hearing people say McKeon's good? And WHY ARE YOU TRADING BECKETT?!

You sure get worried easily. ;-) Hope you get something good for Beckett though. You're giving up a damn good pitcher who can be a team cornerstone for most keeper leagues for years to come.

Well, Beckett has made it through 7. Wonder if they will let him go out for the 8th? :-?

Wow, 4-6-3 double play to end the 8th for beckett. Not even I expected that. A perfect place to make an exit, right? A good, round hundred pitches or so.

A little bit of shakiness from Beckett towards the start of the 8th inning there... I think its Urbina time in the 9th.

PHEW!
His location stunk that inning! :-)
But now they say the bullpen is quiet...WHY! Bring in Urbina!

I am trading him b/c I cannot keep him. Eight spots for:
Helton
Jeter
Ichiro
Bonds
R. Johnson
Schilling
Prior
Gagne

You see my dilemma, if you can call it that.

I may be in the minority here but to me, this is Beckett's game to win. I leave him in there.

Nice keepers. I'm guessing you destroyed your league this year?
