This would be setting a dangerous precedent. My posts are on topic, relevant, and informative. Are you willing to offer this service in thread's of mine where I don't care for a certain person and/or their replies?

Calm down

If Johnny Venters is starting a game for the Rays....... Tampa probably should not have a baseball team.

Love JV, but you're basically a step above pulling people from the stands to play. Just move the team.


American sports need relegation.

Venters started in the same way that Sergio Romo has been starting this year: they're using him as a reliever but having him pitch an inning at the start of the game instead of at the end.

They weren't actually desperate enough to make him a real starter... it's just a new strategy they're trying. We're probably going to see more and more of it in the coming years.

It's not a terrible strategy, but it only makes sense if you don't have really good starters. If you have Max Scherzer he's starting and hopefully going 8 or 9 innings. When you start with an opener you're conceding that the "starter" in the game isn't going to go 8 or 9.

Not that you need this explained. :)

I forget who / what team I heard toying with the notion, but basically if youre going to have starters only going 5-6 innings nightly, why not go to a 4 man rotation giving you an extra arm in the bullpen. If youre only going 5-6 innings / 80+ pitches you shouldn't need the full rest.
