Reading all these made me worry for a second because I get my longest drives forehand.

Then I thought about how far I throw and how often I play and I figure I’m good for another couple decades.

Compared to Wysocki, elbow never close to the body:

I love how the pros give clinics and tell people to keep their wrist up through the throw, but they themselves roll their wrist over to achieve maximum power most of the time. Slow the video down and you absolutely see the wrist roll. True sidearm power comes when you learn to roll the wrist on max distance shots. I don't roll the wrist on shorter shots or when flicking mids or putters. They should be more honest at clinics.

Seth and PE trainers are groovy and all, but why isn't the first thought (when it comes to your livelihood) in regards to possible career ending injury, pain, etc, to go see a real doctor?

You're right, but real doctors cost real money.

Brother Dave is getting likes because the science behind the Red Meat giving people cancer was proved false by many scientists. It was how the meat was raised as an animal that has caused the problems. However I have heard of some runners and other endurance sports even a few in baseball that do not eat meat and some that are completely vegan and are fine. It is the making sure you are getting enough Iron in the diet as well as Calcium and Protein if full on vegan that is the main concern. I am not Vegan, like meat too much to stop and when I have I feel off but for some people even in sports not eating meat or very little works for them.

Ricky looks like a skinny type of pro baseball player, I bet that he played baseball at one point in his life just jugging by the type of throw he dose.
