Re: Reds vs. Pirates Tuesday 6/5
David Cone says its all about recovery time. Give pitchers extra time to recover. He had no problem with Santana throwing a ridiculous number of pitches in the no hitter as long as he is given plenty of time to recover- maybe even miss a start.
Cone says hes a big believer in the Verduci rules but not so much on pitch count as on recovery time. He likes having six starters so as to give each pitcher more rest.
