The only issue is with pitchers who didn't want to start their season earlier than usual and feared not being sharp enough. As previously stated why the need for some people to bash, just watch spring training games if that's what you prefer.
Right there tells you all you need to know. Mike Trout isn't playing. Why? Justin Verlander isn't playing. Cole Hamels isn't playing. Prince Fielder isn't playing. Those guys are among the best in the world, much less this country. They aren't playing. It would be much more exciting if they were.
