You don't know what you are talking about. 100+ pitches are enough. The more he goes, the worse his next start will be. Bert's old school thinking is not the norm with all the moo-lah invested in these major league arms today. Bert played for a ham sandwich compared to today's players, and it is as much management as the player on making sure they get these guys for the duration of their contracts. Didn't Baker just sign a multi-year deal? They want him to pitch for every year of the contract, not just this year. You won't see them overuse these guys; the Twins are smart enough to know they have to have these guys for the long-haul. They should just go get some bullpen help, that would help more than stretching out all the starters."101 pitches is entirely too many" for Scott Baker? Then what's he doing in the majors??? Seems to me that today's pitchers could use a little lesson in testosterone from Bert Blyleven's generation where complete games were the norm. Much as I agree the Twins need bullpen work, I think the current generation of starting pitchers in MLB need to find some cajones as well.

If you don't push yourself alittle bit each game, you will never be able to go any farther than you go at the present time.(Some of our Twin pitchers
could rely on your defense getting the outs rather than pressure yourself to strike everyone one out.}
If it wasn't for Jack Morris' extra effort, who wons who would have won the World Series.
Why are we still having pitching injuries when we are so conscious about pitch count.
Also why do Twin pitcher give up so many homeruns. We must be leading the league.

It did seem premature to give up on Breslow. Did they think he would make it through waivers? Not smart.
