I stretch after warmup a bit, and then after working out. I'm not an uberathlete but so far I've had zero pulls from regular exercise, just the usual soccer injuries from banging into people and twisted ankles, etc.
In theory your muscles work better when the complimentary muscle groups are flexible, even if they're not working. Like your quads work better if your hamstrings are nice and supple. I bet someone here can explain it a little better.
