An interview with Joe Maddon and Jim Hickey
Rays coaches discuss pitching as ALCS moves to Boston
Whoever wants to answer it, Dan Wheeler said last night that he can pitch Monday, if he needs to, but what is his situation as far as rest and given that he threw three plus?JOE MADDON: I want to check with him tomorrow, first of all. That was a lot of innings with a lot of pitches and a lot of emotion. So if you knew Danny like we know Danny, he's going to say that right out of the chute, but we'll see how he feels today. I'd rather wait until the day when all the emotion wears off and then we'll ask him tomorrow.
