Re: Dusty on pitch counts
115-120 pitches for Bailey is about what he does when he's pitching deep into games.
I think Baker wanted to keep Bailey in his normal range.
It also largely depends on whether the pitches were stressful or not. Bailey had zero sressful pitches last night. His 117 pitches were likely a walk in the park for him.
Wainwright last time out, IIRC, threw 128 pitches and everyone was done at a time when the game was close. 128 stressful pitches with the game continually on the line is far greater than 117 non-stressful pitches.
Not all pitches are created equal.
