99 Pitches for Hudson... why take him out?

... yes, i'd like to get the extra points since he's on my team, but why not just leave him in there?

With Ibanez and Olerud coming up they have thought it better to go with the lefty Rhodes.

It is still early in the year and most managers are overly cautious with their starters.

so the only time a pitcher should get a complete game is when they are up by more than three runs?

no but when you have given up 4 runs on the night, and its against a team in your division where every game counts alot, then goto your fireman. If hudson had given up 3 runs and was nearly untouchable then yeah, but they were starting to see him...

i see your point rynman... and like i said, i own him, so i'm already biased, but if i remember correctly, rhodes got lit by the mariners once this season... i didn't see the game... all i saw was the highlight where hansen hit the bomb off him... to me it looked like he made one bad pitch...

Because they're being smart. Sure they could be like the Marlins and Cubs and leave their guys in until their arms fall off. But look at the Marlins: Burnett out for the year, manager fired due to keeping pitchers in too long. Kerry Wood gets TJ surgery, Prior might be out for the year.

I can't blame Oakland for any decision they make with their pitchers, since Zito, Hudson, and Mulder's arms have been healthy due to using them properly.

lol... so you see where i'm coming from in wanting the CG... ;-D

i kow they're being smart elBJ... to me it just seemed like they'd keep a pitcher in for more than 99 pitches... maybe i'm just used to seeing dusty leave his guys in for 130, 140, whatever, as long as they're "still throwing hard" as he'd say... !+)
