Let's sit down CC

I don't think we should let CC Sabathia pitch anymore guys. He's really throwing way to many pitches. I mean...it's just not that nice. You guys should really think about his future...I mean...we are MAIMING him. The Brewers should be ashamed of themselves.

So in his best interests...we should give him a box of popsicles, and tell him to sit down the rest of the year. We don't need him. We'll thank him for all he's done, and we'll throw Mark DeFilice out there instead.

Because throwing those extra 120 or perhaps 210 pitches to help Milwaukee get to the Playoffs just doesn't seem right. We're overusing him guys. Really. We should be more sympathetic to the big fella. Can you imagine the emotional and physical strain being put on him right now to succeed? I mean...these next couple of starts could make the difference between him getting a guaranteed 136 Million next year instead of just a paltry 122 million.

So for the sake of him...and the sake of his Mother (who I'm sure is thinking her little boy is pitching too much), no more CC Sabathia this year.

Maybe we should have used this logic with Parra two months ago.

One of these days his arm is going to come flying off with the ball like a Monty Python episode.

Then you'll see the error in your ways!

I say pitch the fucker EVERY DAY.

Seriously He should be able to start today Friday & Sunday. By my math the brewers will have it clinched by Sunday therefore CC will be ready to go in Philly for game 1 on Wednesday.

Since his "let's go to the videotape non-no-hitter" on August 31:

1. Zero wins.

2. He's lost his last two starts after three no decisions.

3. He has a 3.66 ERA in his last three starts. Not terrible. But not what you want from the "premier pitcher" in baseball.

4. He already has thrown 237 innings this year (on top of the 241 last year). With two more starts, his inning total will be anywhere between 237 and 255 (barring extra innings).

5. After his 241 last year, he was basically Jason Marquis in the playoffs.

wrigleyville, don't you have other things to do, like post on your crappy blog about how the cubs won't choke again this year, knowing deep down that they probably will. dumb hayseed.

Thanks for the statistical update.

I'll take CC's 3.66 over Tampon's 87.3 ERA, Parra's one shitty fucking inning per game or Ben Sheets dick pinch injury.

anonymous - i'm pretty sure you will not find that statement anywhere at wv23, but thank you for the interesting comment as always.

clown - i'm not saying they shouldn't run cc out there twice. they definitely should, if needed, as he's their best bet. i would think he would be in a better position to pitch on 3 days rest back to back to back if he hadn't thrown 47 complete games earlier in the year (and i only object to those that weren't necessary... 9-2 leads, 7-0 leads, etc).

Is this one of those reverse psychology posts, Woz? Like DON'T SWEEP THE ______? They guy wants the ball, I say let him take it.

He'd much rather throw a few extra innings to maybe get to the playoffs than save his arm to surely sit on his ass in October.

Santanta threw a career high 125 pitches in 8 innings last night with a 4 run lead...where are all the screaming "experts" today?

Wrigleyville said...

the mets bullpen makes the brewers bullpen look like, well, something a lot better than the brewers bullpen. the mets aren't safe unless they have a 37 run lead.

ClownShipLollypop said...

Point taken as far as CC finishing games that we were way ahead; however, you are forgetting the bullpen factor. When CC comes out we have to take the magic trolly to the land of turds. Similar to my turds, sometimes there is corn, sometimes peanut shells, but typically there is a lack of consistency normally leading to the runs...

Wrigleyville said...

um, um, but ...

there is no answer to that.

What we do on our crappy site is our crappy business.
