Not that I'm happy about Colon being fatigued -- I'm obviously not -- but it does add even more credence to Manuel removing him against Troy O'Leary.

Actually I would rather have him be fatigued then hurt.

This is why you should stick with a 5 man rotation.

So what's Colon's maximum number of pitches these days?

If pitchers were used to it, it would not be a problem. Colon has not pitched on short rest yet. 4 days rest is the norm in a 5-man rotation (outside of off-days once every week or 2)

From the sounds of Jerry and Coop, it's not the number, but when Bartolo starts showing fatigue, which is the way it should be.
