07:15 AM ET 08.20 | Texas Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan took the occasion of a Monday radio appearance to look back at Sunday's game, which saw Yu Darvish throw 120 pitches. On Darvish going out for the 8 inning Sunday: This is Nolan's observation of sitting in the stands and not asking anybody what transpired, but when Yu pitched out of that trouble he was in in the seventh and watching his reaction, I kind of thought in my mind and reading his body language. I thought that he thought that he was probably through. I think he was at 108 pitches ... I was surprised he went back out in the eighth. The thing about that is if somebody gives you that kind of effort and you send him out in the eighth -- and that's fine -- but I want my pitcher to go out there with the mindset of completing that inning.

Interesting since a reporter asked Wash about sending Darvish back out for the 8th, that maybe he was tired and Wash jumped all over the reporter.

I thought Ryan was a proponent of Rangers starters pitching deeper into ballgames?
