That's 18 no-nos from a Red Sox pitcher. I'm still waiting for just 1 from the Mets.

Hmm. Now when it comes to CARDINALS' pitching ... well ... ah, for the glory days of Bob Gibson again. Or, how about ANY pitcher who's got a clue?Generate more fake news.

"It's the 6th inning and he's running out of gas".
Give me a break. These guys are making millions - suck it up and go out and pitch.
I recall one game of the 1969 World Series - Tom Seaver pitched into the 10th.
They don't make pitchers like that anymore.

ESPN had Juan Marichal on as a guest commentator on Baseball Tonight last week, and he described a game in the 60s that he pitched against the Braves and Warren Spahn, a game that went 16 innings, and that both he and Spahn pitched the entire 16 innings.

When I train in sales, be it outside sales or affiliate sales, I always tell the following little story - which also relates here.
There was an experiment done with fleas. The fleas were placed in a glass jar. Now fleas love to jump. These fleas would jump up to 3 feet higher than the top of the jar.
A cover was placed on the top of the jar. The fleas still jumped, but kept hitting their heads on the bottom of the lid. Ouch.
After a while, the lid was removed, and the fleas would no longer jump 3 feet high. The would simply jump to the top of the jar. Another example of classical conditioning I guess.
The point? Well in sales, sales people will basically "sell" to certain level, and not outperform is certain mental barriers are set. Remove those barriers, and they excel.
As for pitchers, they are trained in the minor leagues to the 100 pitch count. The LID gets placed on the jar. When they reach the major leagues, they're simply GASSED at that level and can pitch no more. Yes, there are some that reach back for that little extra and try to go further, but most of the time, the manager has already made the decision to bring in the bullpen.
