Hell yeah. 13 innings. I think he walked 10+. 19 or 20 Ks. Awesome.

I wouldn't mind seeing the boxscore of that ballgame.

Worst loss of the season...

Worst Loss? Nah..... a bit too extreme my man.  Frustrating Loss?  Yep...wasted a really good effort by Livan.

This guy is called "whiner dude." You should make it your avatar. That'd be awesome.

The games where we gave up 10 or more runs are immediately eliminated because we were beaten so soundly.  I believe that's four.  Which of the other three, not counting this one, was worse?

Livo gave up 2 bombs. That's it. In 8 innings. He's one of the best pitchers in the NL these 2 weeks.

Probably outdated material.  I keep up big time with this type of stuff and that line of thinking was touted by kinesologists of the 1970s and 1980s.  Most new school research will support what I posted in the last post.  Mechanics is definitely the most importance in predicting future injuries.  Secondary is pitch counts and power vs finesse.  Though I would be interested in reading over the studies that you talk of, if you can point me in the right direction I can access them.

I'm interested to see how Nolan Ryan's experiment works out.  Pretty promising right now, but it takes a year or two for these things to kick in.

We should talk more about this in another thread sometime. I'll find some of the stuff that I have read. I've seen a lot that argue both sides. IMO, pitch counts really don't matter THAT much. 100 is the magic number (as usual) that teams stick to for some reason.

Not by my metric.  The 10 run games were much worse than this.  We had a fighting chance in this one and went up against the hottest pitcher in baseball right now.  The others, IMO, were worse than this, assuming we don't come back and win it.

Splitting a series with the Rockies is nothing to be ashamed of

Yeah, the one thing that I have consistently seen is that 100 is a BS number.  The number can be higher or lower for any given player.

He looks like utter garbage so far. Costing himself some loot.

The Nationals have the current longest, non-home-game shutout streak in baseball, that's about to be broken.

"That will get the tying run to the plate in Ian Desmond"

That's great.  He's had such good at bats today. :spaz:
