    Arizona’s coach (UofA) routinely let our pitchers go 115+ pitches in the postseason a couple years ago and he got blasted for it. I think Keith Law even tweeted him and told him he’s ruining their future and shit like that. It seems to be a 50-50 crowd. One half calls pitchers soft and the other half freaks out if you go past 100.

    At the end of the day it’s hardly a pitchers decision anyway.

    You know that there's no way anyone (Spahn, Walter Johnson or Cy Young) would ever pitch that many innings in a baseball game in today's game, right?

    Span is dead and Marichal hasn't pitched in 43 years ... how did that work out for them?

    The top 3 pitchers of all-time in innings pitched are dead. Pussies.

    The game was truly a test of endurance between Spahn and Marichal. That kinda stuff you'll never ever see again in our lifetimes.

    Spahn made it to 80. WW2 vet, so the numbers he put up were all after age 25, Marichal is 80.

    They had long, HOF careers and lived to be too old to die young. So, worked out just fine.

    On April 15, 1968 The Astros and Mets played a 24 inning game. Don Wilson pussied out after 9 innings and Tom Seaver after 10. I remember when men were men and sheep were scared.

    Yeah because managers are pussies too. Spahn was a WW2 vet from the greatest generation. He'd bitch slap anyone that tried to take him out of a shutout no matter how many innings or pitches. Real man.
