So Cuba beat Australia 4-3 so Pool E is set: Israel, Netherlands, Japan and Cuba.

Israel schedule:
Cuba@Israel Sat 10pm ET
Netherlands@Israel Mon 6am ET
Israel@Japan Wed 6am ET

Pitch count rules:
Pitch count raised from 65 in first round to 80 in second round.
In all cases, pitchers may complete a plate appearance in which they exceed those thresholds. Any pitcher who throws at least 50 pitches in a game must rest at least four days. A pitcher who throws 30 pitches must rest one day. No pitcher can throw on three consecutive days, regardless of pitch counts.

Israel really has 3 reliable multi inning pitchers: Marquis, Baker and Zeid (addition of Goldberg to close really makes Zeid more available for lengthier mid-game role). Not sure if we'll go Baker-Marquis-Baker, or Marquis-Baker-Marquis. Marquis is our ace but he threw 1 inning Wed, and Baker is more fresh, Baker was great against CT (4.2 scoreless).
So basically this is the round they get eliminated. Hard to see them beating Cuba and Japan.

What's the idea behind pitch count rules?
Just for the heck of it?

Not to overuse them before the season starts.
