Some people just dont seem to realise that these managers are trying to win the game for there team with as less injuries as possible-they are not paid to win you a few points in your fantasy league!

I'd like to again stress that it's the first start of the season. Pitchers are still building their arms. Complain all you want about this come June, but not now. ;-D
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Dude Then explain to me how back in the day. Guys used to pitch double headers & went on 4 days rest & got hurt 1/2 as less as these guys now. It all being pampered thats what it does to ya.

What day? Cy Young maybe, but that hasn't happened in 90 years. Do you have any proof guys got hurt 50% less? I'd like to see it. If you look back in time, guys weren't really superhuman. They might have pitching more innings, but the pitch counts of games equalizes some things, and many sp were out of bb by their 30's, from the early abuse in their career.

many guys didnt really care if their arm was sore back then they usually just pitched through it which doesnt happen anymore because people know what you can do to your arm by pitching like that. Guys pitched a lot in the season back then couldnt throw the next season.
