Well then, this was an extremely misleading post. It's not news when the guy leaves after the 6th with 111 pitches thrown.
111. Francona did right. No sense is putting the health of the kid at risk.
Pitchers are often on counts early in the season, and he's a young guy. What was the pitch count?
Totally agree, it's easy to focus on Wisconsin.
It's hard not to focus on how OSU players don't seem to improve from year to year, how this team had Marc Loving and not Nigel Hayes (talk about improvement, btw), and how Shannon Scott was Shannon Scott instead of the kid in the back yard, Trey Burke, doing his thing in the scarlet and gray for two years.
I really thought I might be mentioned here. I'm somewhat disappointed that I'm not. What's wrong with me?
