The WBC - Urghhh

Dustin Pedroia is returning to Fort Myers after straining an oblique muscle during a World Baseball Classic batting practice session.

Although I love watching baseball at this time of year, I cringe when I see someone like David Ortiz playing first base with a sore shoulder in a meaningless game. And, seriously, at this stage, WBC games are meaningless. I have a problem with MLB players playing in a tournament that can cause injury and render them unable to fulfill their MLB contracts. With Jason Bay, Ortiz, and Pedroia back, I only need to worry about Youkilis, Javier Lopez and Dice K. Did I mention that Julio Lugo, who is on fire this spring, may have a torn meniscus?
