    A Gamesmanship Scenario

    Imagine this...on Milton's next start, he throws his first pitch and immediately (pre-planned), Narron calls down to the bullpen and tells Belisle (or a fill-in-the-blank righty) to warm up. After a few batters or the first inning, Belisle comes in. Meanwhile the other team is probably stuck with a righty-packed lineup, to which our righty would have an advantage. Then Milton goes out and pitches the next evening. I'm sure you get my drift...why wouldn't this scenario work...has anyone tried this...is it just poor sportsmanship???

    Thoughts???

    I've seent his suggested elsewhere and the sportsman issue is essentially what the explanation was. Furthermore, it would likely only work once due to fixed workout/appearance schedules. Though I suppose you could always have them both warming up and if then keep Milton in or switch him out depending on the lineup.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Interesting scenario.......but in my playing days, that's something that we would have considered "bush league."
