    I would hope that they go this route, instead of a cloud of obvious injury bullshit. Point out that NFL teams who have made the playoffs routinely bench starters and pro pitchers on a hard pitch count being pulled.

    Given the size of today's contracts, protecting your investment makes good sense.

    interesting, the more they are paid, the less they play.
    The goal of the franchise is to make as much money as possible. The goal of the team is to win the Championship, so sit players as much as possible before the playoffs while still keeping them in optimum performance. The vast majority of tickets are sold before game #1. The Lakers can conceivably sit LBJ and AD against Boston, Philly, Houston, Denver and Milwaukee and still win enough to make the playoffs. Find the 62 easiest games without playing back-to-back. If you can do analytics to put a team together or scout another team, you can use the same tools to put yourself in the most advantageous schedule.
