| I think with how Buchholz has pitched so far this season, you want to see him earn something. |
That's the key for me. He started the inning with a low pitch count and he was facing the worst offense in baseball. The only reason for a quick hook I can see is if the trainers and / or pitching coach are concerned about fatigue. Otherwise it's the perfect time for him to stretch out a bit. And earn something.
