bcc…. agree. Going with so many one inning relievers…. one always seems to have an off night. It happens time and time again. Like you say if a starter is in a groove leave him in.
ps… this probably won’t happen…. its a new game now. A couple of times through the order and you’re done. Stat sheets predict when he will become ineffective…. even if he is giving a solid performance. There’s no more asking a pitcher if he is feeling strong because they already think they know.
