Different types of pitchers.....Starters are to have endurance to pitch a lot of pitches and last through at least 6 -7 innings....Closers in most cases only needs to pitch 1-2 innings.

coyotedances wrote: wonder what the problem is?
I'm not sure....he seems to be ok when pitching in Iowa and should be maturing enough to handle the bigs.....the year he pitched well....he was always losing by one run....and the offense could only get a run or two in support....but that has not been an excuse last season or this.

Well Bowden is warming up in the bull pen....but with bases loaded Jimmy Rollins slams a double just barely fair down the left field line to give the Phillies a 4-1 lead....time to put a fork in Wells...he is leaving the mound for Michael Bowden to pitch.
