Just because you get in better shape doesn't mean you will increase your perfomrance. As someone noted, some people have enough talent to not have to train and still be better than anyone else.

So how am I wrong again? :-?

That's just completely illogical. You don't believe in the existence of players who possess enough talent to play in the major leagues without training and working to the fullest of their abilities? Mickey Mantle partied like a rock star his whole career and took horrible care of his body. Staying out drinking all night doesn't constitute the optimum training regime IMO.


Did you read the whole thread? What you are saying is the same as what I'm saying. Just because you train harder doesn't mean you will perform. You increase the chances that you might but it doesn't guarantee that you will have a career year as some people believe.
