I replay seasons on Strat-O-Matic using actual lineups. Am currently playing 1954 and get to May 4 & 5, Philadelphia @ St. Louis. Because I play all the games, there is some time lag between games for any two teams. Robin Roberts comes up as the starter on May 5, which puzzled me because I could have swore he just completed the prior game on about 150 pitches (Strat does an estimated pitch count). So I go to the actual boxes and see that Roberts left the game after only 2 innings on May 4, faced 12 batters, so they brought him back the next day and he pitched a complete game!
Now, trust me, I do not condone that and get all Nolan Ryan on you to start talking about how tough the old timers were, but I was just thinking about what the media and internet would do with a manager that made such a decision in today's game. Obviously, Roberts was a different animal, pitching effectively until he was 39, but still, that had to be one sore arm after the game on May 5th.
