I believe the Astros minor league system employed “split level rotations” where two starters pitched in the same night at several levels (but not for the entire year). This was employed to give multiple guys looks as starters and to keep pitch counts down but it would be interesting to see how they fared. The Astros sent six minor league teams to the playoffs. Something went right!

Infielders are taught that there is an order in catching popups where some positions have priority over others. That order is SS,2B,3B,1B,C,P. Pitchers expect to be called off by someone else because they are coached to get out of the way and let another fielder have it. That being said, Waino put his hands up and called off Molina so he was at fault.
