Pirates are scoring 3 runs a game and have a winning record. Pitching.
Dusty was smart to take Homer out, he wasn't right tonight. Don't want to risk injury. Probably last cool night/extended time off start for him to September at least.
I wonder if Bailey is hurt (again)? Only 3 innings with a little over 70 pitches.
Walker is a good hitter...I'm surprised he's only around .270
Let's get those sticks working.
Astros 4-1 over Cards, bottom 1
David Cone says its all about recovery time. Give pitchers extra time to recover. He had no problem with Santana throwing a ridiculous number of pitches in the no hitter as long as he is given plenty of time to recover- maybe even miss a start.
Cone says hes a big believer in the Verduci rules but not so much on pitch count as on recovery time. He likes having six starters so as to give each pitcher more rest.
