Not going to pretend I'm confident with Lidge, but glad he got out of it. 9-3!

God, we won, but let's face it, we better not see Lidge pitching as closer in one run games anytime soon again. Dude just doesn't have it.

If you condition properly, you can hit 120-130 early in the season, Halladay has been doing it for years.  For me the number is not as important as the combo of how the pitcher is feeling, how is velocity is looking and what his location is looking like.  being a starting pitcher is inherently risky and going deeper in the game increases the risk of fatigue which can lead to the factors that can produce an injury, I wouldn't deny that.  But some pitchers are able to handle it and they have conditioned their body well enough to reduce the risk.

I have some general articles that I've kept through the years since I was a pitcher and when I was a coach that I can scan when I get a chance this weekend or next (you will have to remind me).  I would also like you to send me anything you have on this 130 number.

I do have some additional comments about your comments -- but to the larger issue of pitch counts I'll have to do a bit of research and get back to you. I'll start a thread or drop you a PM.

I do really enjoy conversations about this type of thing, and I do enjoy your posts, so don't take my comments the wrong way.  :cheers:

And the mets are losing hardcore in the sixth. Man, we might just run away with the NL East come April's end at this rate.

It really sucks that the stadium always looks so empty. I realize its a tuesday but I wish that stadium would fill up. This team is exciting to watch.

I think she'd look good in yellow or a limeish green.

Bad strike zone, but the two outs have come on pitches right down the middle...Halladay actually rarely goes 120.  He collects CGs like candy because he's so efficient.

2011:

April:  101, 113, 123, 112, 130, 107
May:  110, 115, 119, 116, 123, 111
June:  114, 106, 112, 97, 113
July:  110, 116, 67, 116, 98
August:  104, 111, 122, 83, 108
September:  91, 120, 114, 107, 77

5 times over 120 last season alone, I wouldn't call that rarely.

If someone wants to continue this debate PM me or start a new thread.


Good win, thank god Lidge pulled it out :w:
