Actually, I will make a case for having relief pitchers throw a few pitches on the mound: the mound on the field often is a bit different from the mound in the bullpen, so a pitcher should be able to throw a few pitches just to get a feel for it. However, they definitely do NOT need to throw 8 of 'em (which is what they're currently limited to)...2 or 3 should be plenty.
