So we're saying a guy who has been a regular starter at low-A shouldn't be allowed to start a meaningless low-A playoff game because we don't want to subject him to the "pressure"???

Seriously???

not quite, but the "fed to wolves" point is that he had been in F-burg for what, 2-3 starts? I don't think he had been beyond the complex league level before that, but maybe I'm wrong.  Not very fair to the F-burg teammates for management to insist on throwing a guy into the deep end.  They had worked hard to make the playoffs.  At least it's consistent with the team philosophy about not giving a crap about results. Got to condition the players to tanking and folding.

he had made 3 starts at Fredricksburg and 2 in the rookie league. I just don't see a Low-A playoff game being such a big deal. The guy was lights out, there's no reason not to pitch him.  He had a bad start,  it happens. I wouldn't read too much into it.

The entire purpose of the minor leagues is to develop talent. It is absolutely fair to pitch him.

Yea. It’s fine. A number of the players who helped the team make the playoffs had already been moved up to Wilmington.  And had their spots taken by younger guys. No one cares much what happens in these minor league playoffs.

Whoever would have started last night can start the next game. That game will be do-or-die.

A bit of an over-reaction on my part.  It's a challenge start, and he had been looking good.
