WBC kicks off on March 6th. 

Miggy and VMart playing for Venezuela, they appear to start on Marth 10th.  Kinsler play for USA.  Jiminez pitching for someone.  There's one or two other Detroit minor leaguers who are playing.

Can't say that I'm thrilled about Miggy and Vmart playing in the WBC.  I mean good for them but I already cringe anytime they run the bases cause of fear of injury, that's going to be ten fold when they play in something that I really don't care about.

Random thought of the day:

Miguel Cabrera is the Bill Murray of baseball.  

If you get this and agree, we'll be the most excellent internet friends for life.

No more so than a spring training game.

Maybe, but for one I have more faith in our coaching staff to make sure they don't over do them and also I don't expect either to really give it their all on spring training.  I don't think Victor or Cabrera is going to try to stretch a single into a double or try scoring from 1st on a double in ST.  But playing for their country could be a different story.

I'm certain they're more likely to run hard in a WBC game than a Spring Training game.

Sometimes I think some of these guys from other countries feel more passionately about the WBC than the regular season.

They might.  Their nationalism takes over, and that's understandable.  Many players have to leave their home country and families to pursue their vocation, so I get how playing for their national team might inspire them.

I also do not think the coaches / managers of national teams are taking more risks with players or are markedly less qualified to understand the injury risks than the Tigers staff.

It isn't as if Kevin Rand is viewed as the gold standard.

I am getting tired of reading stories about which players are going to play for which countries in the WBC.  I see a headline about Miguel Cabrera and my first thought is it's a trade rumor.  Then I see he is playing for Venezuela and my next thought is that he is playing winter ball??? It doesn't seem like something that needs to be updated every day, but I suppose they have to write about something.

I have a trip on Expedia waiting to book right now with tickets to the game against the Phillies.  If the wife was not pregnant I would already have clicked the button to finalize the trip about 2 months ago.  If she had short term disability like she did with the last employer I would have already finalized it.  

Decisions decisions...

Thanks.  Just one this time.  I asked the Dr how often it happens that they say 1 when there really is a 2nd or something hiding behind the other one.  She said she had been doing this work for 30 years and it happens once every 10 years or so.....I asked her how long it had been since the last time it happened...she chuckled a little and then realized it had been 10 years or so.  We find out if it's a boy or a girl in a couple weeks.

Just think, you have better odds of the one baby being both a boy and a girl than for her to have missed a 2nd baby.

They'll just be jogging after they hit the ball 600 feet. : )

Didn't Yooper used to start this thread? Good job with it. It's usually my favorite thread of the season.
