Where do the rest of the pitchers fit in? If there willing to throw Wynkoop, Westy and Holmes midweek and weekends? Sullivan has to have pitched 100 innings this year; as he warms up every game! Not sure how the others work things out? Worried we burn up Webb, who has been incredible! Any thoughts going forward form those in the know??
We are using Webb the same way we used Price last year. They don't worry about tomorrow with pitchers and winning games. They will throw Seddon in some more midweek games. They were just trying to see where Holmes was at. Westy is going to have a big role on weekends, obviously, as is Wynkoop. You use your best pitchers, imo. Sully does warm up a lot, but they throw all the time in practice anyways.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Coach Meyers has a history of limiting the number of pitchers that play a large role as the season winds down. My guess if Montgomery gets healthy the rotation is Montgomery/Belcher/Wynkoop or Holmes and Holmes/Westmorland as long relievers and Beal as the setup man for Webb.

Kind of my thoughts on Webb! We use him like Matt the last two years; and Matt had arm issues both Falls! Some of these guys need to pitch against live batters to work things out. Just wondering where or when do they try to develop some of the others? I realize they want to win; but there are occasions when we push the limits of these young men.
And that's why Price hasn't thrown a ball in almost a year! Lot to said for properly handling a staff with respect to innings thrown as well as how many time a guy gets Up to get loose during a game
Is your first name Andy by chance! This sounds really familiar!
They do the same thing in the pros. Their closers come in 3X a week if not more.
You will never see a closer in the pros be extended to 3, 4+ innings that's the difference in conditioning an arm to the length of an outing and where damage can occur
Not Andy, I think your missing the point of the question. I'm asking how do the other kids develop or see live batters if they don't throw. Was asking if this is the way most programs do it, by people who might know more. I do think we have overthrown some guys when we could steal innings from some others. After this year, we lose Belcher, Webb, Sullivan, Westy, Holmes and possible Seddon & Koumas. Just wondering??
You don't develop guys by putting them in tough situations during SEC games if you can help it. We need to score more runs, especially during the week, so we can throw Fiori, Seddon, Knab, and the other youngsters.
I think we do push the limits sometimes, but every college coach does. The best arms almost always sign pro contracts so the guys who rise to the top in college ball get the most innings.
I was just messing with you. Your use of certain punctuation and the questioning of pitching is very Andy-esque. But your question is a good one.
Agree, scoring would help!!
