The Sox simply refuse to work counts. This dubious approach to hitting has got to be organizational.
And if Ventura keeps doing this to young pitchers, he needs to go.
If the pitchers can't handle that workload then they don't belong on the roster. Or they need to be more efficient. But its damned if you do, damned if you don't. If Robin pulls them earlier then he's taxing the bullpen.
