Pitch counts or innings pitched?
I agree that younger pitchers should stay on a pitch count/innings count. I liked what Boston did with Buckholtz last season in shutting him down. However you are entering into a very dicey situation if you think pitch counts should be written into contracts. How do you determine if a pitcher wanted to go out there? What do you do when they playoffs come around?
