Pitcher Abuse

Kevin Schofield talks about “pitcher abuse” which is very interesting. Worth a read for any fan of the game and armchair manager.

Boston’s taken a lot of heat from fans and the press for both leaving pitchers in too long as well as pulling them too early (and leaving Pedro in too long in the final Red Sox playoff game last October (and other boneheaded moves) cost Grady Little his job).

I wonder if they were aware of this or if we’ll see some new managing based on this report…
