    Thank god. Shut him down for the year.

    Limit bumgarners use as well. Those two need to be saved for next year. Everyone else who cares.

    Seriously. No point keeping Bumgarner in a game for 100+ pitches at this point, or really for his past few starts.

    I agree with limiting Bumgarner and Cain's innings but we have no one to eat Cain's innings if we shut him down. Not unless we find someone through the waiver wire. Dan Haren cleared waivers and can be traded to any team. Why not try him out for a month and have first crack at signing him? I think innings finally caught up to him and is just two seasons removed from finishing 7th in the CY voting. He's prone to the long ball but I think AT&T would help that. He still has an excellent 5.09 SO/BB. I'm positive it wouldn't take much to get him. Haren in the mid-to-backend of the rotation looks good to me.

    We have plenty of horrible relievers to throw out for a few innings, look at the great work Mijares did last night.

    Ha, even our horrible relievers are getting taxed.

    With Bochy, every reliever gets taxed.

    I'm glad they're being super cautious with Cain, absolutely no reason to take any chances.

    What's crazy is Kontos hasn't pitched since July 22nd and he still has the 2nd most IP (1ip behind ROMO) in the bullpen this year.
