Maybe you just don't know as much as you think you do.
It's generally a good idea but I wouldn't bind myself to it in all situations. Depending on the opponent, particularly how their bullpen shapes up I just might go against it. Another thing. If I have strong hitters I just might say the hell with it. You know some left handed batters do OK against left handed pitchers. In baseball, and in life I do not care for set in stone rules, and no I'm not a doctor, but I do have a worthless M.A. in a you can't make any money on it field.
