I don't know, but this seems backwards to me. My guess is that 100 pitches over 8 innings results in less wear and tear than 100 pitches over 6 innings, although I'd guess the difference is small.

I'd base my opinion on the simple correlation between the above, and my almost certain belief that 100 pitches over 8 innings is less stressful than 100 pitches over 1 inning.

My belief is that more, over less time, is more stressful than the same amount, over more time.

for a reliever, 100 game pitches over 8 innings also comes with warming up in the bullpen and sitting back down

It will take a starter 40 starts to get 200 innings on this team, We can use all of them we dont have Big time HORSES, I will be surprised if maybe 2 of them get to 180 innings, Use them all figure it out Molly!!

League average start is just over 5 1/3 innings.
This is baseball now, it's not a Twins thing.
