My Morning in ExileThings I wrote while realizing that no matter who wins this series, one of the managers is going to get more guff than he probably deserves:
Not that guff is the worst thing a guy can take. Indeed, on the "taking" scale, guff is far preferable to grief, crap and its more colorful permutations. Really, with the exception of "rebop" guff is probably the best thing you can expect to take under the circumstances.

I love everything about Bob Gibson. His pitching, his attitude, the way he looked his cap, his honesty.
He also pitched just six times on 3-days rest in 1967 and 1968 (combined) before doing it four more times in the two Series. (The two Game 1’s were on four days rest).

I actually didn’t believe you and had to check BBRef to make sure. I thought five man rotations started in the late 70s.
I found a BP link with some history on the 5 man rotation:
I keep thinking that biologically speaking it would be possible to figure out how long it takes the broken down muscle to regenerate and normalize.
Is this much different than a normal “workout” where you are not going overboard to gain muscle but enough to “tone” muscle. I would think there would be a way to figure out how much of a toll 100 + pitches (plus warmups, throws.. etc) take on your arm muscles.
