...because the Conventional Wisdom is usually right.
The Rockies do have three things to lose here:
- pitchers, to injuries.
and their bullpen was pitching very well
Pitchers get hurt. I don't see how pitchers throwing 75 pitches every fifth day are any more susceptible to injury than pitchers throwing 100 pitches every sixth day.
Why not just have an entire staff of two-inning relievers, and pinch-hit every time up? You could do it with 9 relievers going every other day and 1 extra-innings long man (preferably a knuckleballer!);
They could use some better starters.
Guthrie, Roenicke and Moscoso are effectively part of the rotation, so their innings should be treated as such. By that measure, Colorado's "starters" are pitching 6-7 innings every game, save yesterday's.
pre-set “piggyback” reliefers [sic]
