Would have been nice to have seen Gio go 8 and then bring in Clip.

We will have to disagree on this one, I've seen different material on pitch maxs than 130, there certainly isn't a hard set proven number on the issue.

I'm always eager to read studies about pitch counts or pitch injuries or pitching mechanics, as I state in any pitching conversation on this site. So if you have a study or something you're leaning on for this, I'd love to read it.

And not to be snarky -- but I'd be surprised if a study has been done that analyzes the risk on world-class athletes in prime conditioning shape throwing 130+ pitches in April. My point -- why would you ever risk injury for a game in April?

But like I said, I'd love to read any studies that discuss pitch counts that high.

Edit: and I do agree there is no hard set proven number on this issue. Certainly. But why risk it in the gray area in April?

Someone high up in this organization doesn't want Clip to get any saves (even high-leverage ones) so I doubt it would have happened anyway.

Makes even more sense.

Keep sliders down. Sliders up get hit a long way.
