Tell the truth, a deep run in the SEC tourney is hell on a bullpen, aint it?
I don't worry about the pen so much. It's just regular work for those guys and in many cases much needed. My concern is on the position players logging in excessive innings in the heat or late at night. They will wear down more than a pitcher. Most pitchers would rather throw some game innings than a bullpen session. They are going to throw a set # if pitches whether in a game or not. Unless they are hurt or fatigued
