Rockies' Project 5,183 is historically wacky, and it's not helping league's worst pitching staff - Yahoo! Sports
and this June he conceived and implemented the project, which he also calls a "paired pitching system."
It begins with a four-man starting rotation rather than the standard five, and follows them with three rotating piggybacks. No starter throws more than 75 pitches and no piggyback throws more than 50. It's a system rooted in rigidity, one that gives a manager little room to maneuver
I'm all for trying crazy tactics but what the hell???
Can't win this year, may as well preserve arms for next year.
I heard about the 4 man rotation and 75 pitches a while back and thought it was crazy then and even worse now.
Honest to goodness I read the title, saw the author was FKYW and assumed it had something to do with Marlins attendance.
