Abuse of these kids isn't going to stop until they themselves decide to make a stand. Garrido isn't concerned with what the kid does five years from now -- he's worried about his job and winning a CWS. And he says he wanted to take the kid out after 9 innings, but the kid himself wanted to keep pitching. I know it doesn't seem obvious or appropriate, but these kids are the ones who will have to say something to end the abuse (if it is indeed abuse). If the kid wants to throw 170 pitches after throwing 30 the day before, it's rare that a coach is going to tell him 'no.' It's the same thing in the majors. If a young kid is asked to throw 140 pitches, he can't or won't say anything. Unless his agent screams publicly, who's interests are best served by the kid being held to a reasonable number of pitches? The manager for sure is always on a short leash in regard to his job and the GM isn't in a much safer position.

Hey, maybe today's game didn't count either.

Dude, don't ask any questions. Keep your mouth shut and deal with it. Read the articles and stop whining. And if you don't like it, don't subscribe.

Is there a reason that so many of the articles these days were first posted on ESPN.com? Are we better off canceling our BP subscription and just reading ESPN? Seems we'd get more timely info. I don't subscribe to the Wall Street Journal to read what was written in the USA Today a week prior.

What\'s up with the same articles being here and at espn.com? ESPN looking at buying BP or something?

Correct; however, we know that Maddux had the fortitude necessary to lift up his teammates and compel them to score. Unfortunately, it\'s a factor that too often is ignored.
