    Note: Only once has he failed to go at least five innings and only once has he allowed more than three earned runs. So, that sort of sets the expectation bar for six innings and three earned runs on Wednesday, if you ask me. And, you have to think he’s only good for 113 pitches – especially if they’re going to ask him to come back and pitch Game 4, if necessary.
