They are not in great PITCHING shape. Sure they may be able to run a mile in 5 1/2 minutes, do crazy push ups, sit ups etc. But remember guys like Gaylord Perry and Rick Ruschell looked like a beer league softball player and yet they could pitch 8 inning and throw 140 pitches in a game.I agree with you that kids need to throw more, not harder, and that MLB pitchers could pitch more than they do. No argument there.
But earlier you said the pitchers were not in great shape because they could not throw 100 pitches in a game. That is what I was disagreeing with. Now you seem to have changed your opinion, which is great.
