Dayum. I should have been a left handed stud.
I can't believe that a pitcher is the highest paid person in baseball. Over an everyday player? Crazy.
I wonder what Mike Trout will make then.
Get the money...
 While my knee jerk reation is to agree that a pitcher shouldn't make more than an "every day" player, one can make the argument that a pitcher who pitches 200 innings a year faces, on average somewhere north of 800 batters. A position player might make 600 or 650 plate appearances a year. Not sure that we're measuring apples, but it's worth a thought. Particularly when a good pitcher impacts an opposing team in terms of lineup, opposition pitching changes, as well as opposition pitcher selection the day before and day after his appearance.
4. never thought of it that way, but makes perfect sense. I guess they are different in all sorts of qualitative ways, but the quantity seems pretty even. I like that. Actually gives me some new respect for Pitchers.
