    It's one thing to worry about pitch counts when a guy is struggling with command and has thrown 90 to 100 pitches. Wood went into the 7th having thrown 58 pitches. If you don't pull him there, than I fail to see why you pull him after 4 batters and maybe 12 pitches. At least based on pitch counts by themselves.

    He was getting lit up which is the reason I had no problem with him being pulled, but lets not act like sending a guy out with fewer than 60 pitches is going to kill his arm in October.
    If he's pitching well in a close game and has a normal pitch count, of course you leave him in as opposed to going to a lesser middle inning arm. But when it's 8-1 after the homer, and the no-no and shut-out aren't milestones for the manager to leave him in to achieve, I say save the innings for later and give the mop-up guys some work.

    Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS

    I think they just officially postponed the Cards-Fish game, so we'll play tomorrow with a full 2 game lead.

    I hope the Cards game isn't final until after the Bengals game.

    Not good at reading lips, but he seemed to be saying, "take it easy. Easy man." My wife the speech therapist agrees.

    Just announced the Cards-Fish game is postponed. 2 game lead going into the series - a possible 5-game lead coming out. Piecorro says that "Bruce" Welsh will break down the pitching matchups.

    Wood is not even throwing close to the same amount of pitches Bailey was a year ago in his starts. I understand being careful but this over the top.
    The pitches thrown is more important than innings to me.

    When I see bruce hit....I think he needs to stand a little closer to the plate and maybe those pitches that look like balls...which are really strikes...would be hit. He stands far off the plate and takes those pitches when they are strikes.

    Hat tip to Sir Charles, 11-4 final, although two of those runs were unearned. Certainly you didn't factor in the error, right?
