What is the point of letting him go one-third of an inning with every intention of replacing him? (The pitch count is irrelevant for Richards at this point because he is proven enough, so I hope that is not the reason for the pitching change.) Is there really a better option in the bullpen over Richards? I would really like to understand Scioscia's mindset with these pitching moves.
    Scioscia doesn't really do things based on merit of thought. I think he's too busy thinking about the lasagna he's going to have after the game.

    Shoe gets pulled after 6 innings of shutout baseball a couple of games ago only for the bullpen (Bedrosian) to cough up the game...
