The Zen that can be written or spoken is not the true Zen. The starter that can not go through an opposing lineup a third time is not a starter.
Maybe that's your position on Odorizzi and he should be removed from the rotation. If so, then we need another guy who can go the necessary distance, or the bullpen will quickly be burned to a crisp.
It has to come down to execution. Jake's career splits speak for themselves.
*where tOPS+ is a measure of the OPS allowed relative to overall OPS allowed.
The spike in those numbers is staggering. However, the bullpen argument is a legitimate one that cannot be ignored either.
The manager has to know when his pitcher is executing his pitches and when he is not. In this case, Jake had not been executing flawlessly the previous several innings and had been allowing runs. In this instance, ignoring the result, the correct decision was still to pull him.
In his last start, against the Reds, he was executing his pitches much better. Seeing him face the lineup for a 3rd time made me uneasy that day, but it was not a bad decision, results aside, to let him keep pitching.
It all has to come down to the process. Especially with a guy whose numbers the third time through the order are significantly worse.
