Jonah Keri on the Texas Rangers and Pitch Counts

The Rangers have allowed fewer runs per game this season than in any other season in 20 years. They’re about to lock down their first playoff berth in more than a decade, and have a legitimate shot at winning their first World Series title in franchise history.

The team now has a simple, and hopefully sustainable, blueprint for building a better pitching staff: Work harder.

“If you set limits,” said Maddux, “you lower people’s ceilings.”

This is a great, great piece by Jonah Keri about the things the Rangers are doing with their pitchers down in Texas. It’s a long piece, but well worth the time it takes to read it. (tip of the hat to The Book Blog)
