In virtually every sport, drastic changes have happened. But, hey, why should anyone look at contemporary baseball trends or research like that done by verducci when we have you as an expert?-----------------It's not "physiology" that has created the "drastic" changes in pitching stamina genius. It's the burgeoning million dollar contracts ownership is protecting on their investment.
I'd agree. Read what I write and you might actually learn something.
Gee, thanks for the physiology lessons. I really enjoyed readin....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
It's not my fault you suuckle Verducci's nutsack. If you subscribe to his "theories", by all means, gobble him up.
I don't recall saying that if a pitcher can't throw a full season he doesn't belong in the Major Leagues. Can you copy and paste that comment from me? What I DID say was that Chapman, who has pitched as a starter his entire professional career before the Reds signed him, should be conditioned to last a full season and NOT limited by innings.
Don't feel discouraged by missing my subtleties. You're ignorant, thus forgiven.
"how many starts should chapman get this year ?"
20, I've never been afraid of a direct question.
".i was thinking 23 or 24"
He'd be around that since he will most likely make a few preliminary starts in AAA first.
"you were a major earl apologist ..now you are backing off"
Nonsense. That's just been an argumentative fallacy I've endured from you. Most of the time I've come to his defense has been more on the behalf of logic , reason, ration , and/or cause. I've mentioned numerous times that I don't want him as the Reds manager but at the same time he's not the cause of every Reds loss.
