That's true, I guess it's better to be safe. the coaches know more than me obviously. It's just strange that pitchers born in the 1940's or 1950's like Seaver, Carlton, Ryan, Sutton and so on pitched a lot of innings and it didn't hurt them but nowdays it's looked down upon to pitch so many innings. Maybe the conditions back then were easier, I just don't get it.
