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.
Zack Greinke...the next Greg Maddux. LOOK IT UP!
For what it's worth.
