The supposed invincibility of Rocker and Leiter

Not so much lately

Leiter has gotten lit up two games in a row
Rocker gave up six runs to Bama tonight
(But Vandy still leads 8-6)

I haven’t looked at the stats, but I think both threw a high number of innings early in the season. Their arms may be wearing down a little bit.

Sometimes it has been by necessity, but Arkansas has done a good job of getting its starters out without throwing a lot of pitches this year. As Dave Van Horn says, they will need those innings later in the year.

Leiter did not start this afternoon against Bama. Dunno if they’re holding him for tomorrow or giving him the weekend off.
