No problem with Bailey going 125 pitches last night. First the early in the season stuff is not an issue at this point. We're almost 25% of the way through the season now and the only other reason to worry about it would be if it was cold out. The Reds were in Florida. I wouldn't want him routinely going 125 pitches, but no problem letting him finsih when he was cruising. Bailey's a hoss. Let him be one.
