I understand this view for the hitters, but with the wear and tear on pitchers' arms, the extra innings for the WBC are a risk to their big paydays. While it is true they make huge sums, they do have families to provide for, including their futures. The bottom line for pitchers is that pitching in the WBC isn't a sound financial decision--and the people who are putting on the tournament aren't doing it just for "fun"--they're interesting in making money. I can't blame pitchers for sitting this one out.
