In response to dgalehouse's comment:
Part of the reason why we get into these situations is that our starters very rarely pitch a complete game. The occasional complete game is important in that the entire pen gets a rest. Even eight innings from the starter would help. And , it is not true that the complete game is a thing of the past. Check the daily box scores. Complete games are being thrown , just not by our guys.
Stabbed by Foulke.
14 teams, including Tampa Bay have no complete games.
The Reds have 1.
The Red Sox have 2 complete games. So do 9 other teams
KC and Washington have 3
Philly and the Dodgers have 4
St Louis has 5.
I don't think I'd trade records with any of those teams, besides the Cards.
I was looking at the same facts people should check them before making incorrect comments
Complete games are great.
But, they're no guarantee that you're going to have a good record.
I do agree that the Sox rotation, as a whole, could go deeper into games.
Doubront and Lackey are the biggest culprits, when it comes to innings pitched.
The bullpen is definitely getting stretched, lately.
Hopefully, Lester is able to spare the pen tonight.
