The argument is, no one really knows what's right. I certainly dont pretend to know more than the guys actually playing the game. For every Spahn or Carlton or Ryan you select off the top there are probably 50 college and minor league players who destroyed their arms. Heck maybe Koufax could have played five more years if he hadn't pitched 300+ innings while in pain. Could Mark Fydrich have had a career if they would have handled him differently? Plus have you seen the arms coming out of bullpens lately? Its generally an upgrade to get a tired starter out of the game.
