Ursa are you kidding me? What a short sighted comment...32 days of work...sure.
So you think, throughout the entire year, the only time a Major League Pitcher does work is on the day he starts? I don't have any stats to back me up, but I believe that if you actually want to be more than a career minor leaguer, you have to put in more work on the days you don't pitch than the days you pitch.
Are you suggesting that pitchers spend entire off seasons doing no work? Yeah, they probably just sit around the house playing video games...I mean, to perform at the highest level in the world, at one of the most demanding positions in the sport...you don't really need to do much work at all right? Just show up every 5th day and throw the ball...c'mon man.
Maybe I reacted, but I couldn't let you take such a low blow at all the pitchers who bust their ass day in day out to perform as best they can when they take the mound.
