The overuse stems from two things....

1. Dusty doesn't shut down starters when his team is out of the race for a playoff spot (he uses them as if he is fighting for that last pot)
2. Dusty doesn't look at pitching count over a multi game series and tends to keep pitchers in the game with a HUGE lead. Its one thing to have your pitcher throw 110 pitches in a game, but its another thing to have him throw 90-100+ pitches for 3-4 starts in a row.....

He has this rep prior to coming to the Nats. Some claim its overblown, so don't.....
