It's not their call. It's not their arm. I felt fine when I came out of the game. I can't explain it. It's just one of those nights that I was on. People are going to judge no matter what happens, good or bad. That's fine. But if they're not in the situation, then they don't know what's going on. That one day, one outing, is not going to make or break a career. So I threw 169 pitches. It certainly didn't feel like that many. Yeah, my arm hurts now (one day later). But it's hurt a lot worse before in my career. People can say it's wrong, but there is no way I would change any of it. It was a great moment."

-- Texas pitcher Austin Wood, addressing criticism about throwing 169 pitches Saturday night/Sunday morning. txtwstr7's take here.
