Rays look to 1000 innings from starting pitchers
Read the Article:

 I knew about this 1000 innings goal for the Rays starting pitchers before the start of the season. I thought it very interesting and somewhat disagreed with it.
Two hundred innings per starter means two things: if you used only the starting five you rode into April with,  then they are probably gassed even though you probably won a LOT of ballgames.
What good is making the post-season if your starting arms are dead?
I have noticed that even Maddon seems to be pressing to reach this goal, taking starters out at the 100 pitch mark, even if they are cruising.
Would you WANT your team to accomplish this goal?
