    • This is my only major concern, I want this to be the braintrust being extra cautious instead of Means complaining this early in the season that he's got a tired or sore arm. And you're correct if Means continues to pitch every fifth day, we'll never know the real reason for this extra rest. 
    • By the way, if I thought we were going to actually win something this year I'd be willing to ride Means into the ground like a rented donkey. But we're not, so what's the point?
    • I quit a while ago.  Best thing I ever did.  Thanks for your concern though. I'm not sure if it was called the Verducci effect, but there was pretty prominent study done ~15 years ago, which suggested that large innings spikes can lead to injury.  And then basically every team in baseball began developing their pitchers in a pretty uniform way in regards to innings counts. I concede there was nothing concrete then.  I'd be curious to know how it was "debunked." How many times with your own eyes have you seen some pitcher- in a postseason, in a regular season, as a prospect- pitch a lot more innings than normal and have residual effects? I think it's common sense wisdom.  Just as not smoking is. As far as your evaluation of Means, I agree with that whole-heartedly.  "Low stress innings."  "Low pitch counts."  "Few baserunners." Sounds exactly like a guy who is about to pitch a whole lot of innings.  Like over six per start.  Which if you run him out there every fifth day adds up to about...... 210 innings.
    • I'm not sure I've seen him hit a ground ball. He lifts everything. Before he K'd in one AB tonight, he hit a foul ball that didn't miss being an opposite field HR by very much. I'd like to see him some more against some lefties....Bowie has faced very little LHP so far. 
    • If your starting catcher is hitting 250 with I hr and 3 rbi he should be a very good defensive catcher, Pedro is not. First inning he tried to trick Judge at two strikes with a curveball, Kremer hadn't thrown one in the inning, hung it, gone.
