“The analytic world, they’re right in this one respect: They are run-preventing better than ever before, so that model works. But it’s short-sighted, not long-term effective. The game to me will suffer by lessening the role of the starter and thinking that you’re protecting the starter, when in essence the injuries are harder and greater than they’ve ever been.
“And you’re not really getting the full capacity out of a guy who you’re giving $210 million. As long as they feel like arms are coming and they can shuffle the deck and everybody can be that power arm that doesn’t develop that second and third pitch, I think we’re stunting the growth of some greatness that we’re allowing just max effort, rpm, go get it, give me five, six [innings] that’s all I need.
