George Steinbrenner's not happy about the upcoming World Baseball Classic. Steinbrenner fears that a player (or players) is going to get seriously injured during this early season tournament. What's frightening is that I agree with him. I can't remember the last time I thought well of anything Steinbrenner thought or did.
Pitchers are especially vulnerable as they need about 6-8 weeks before they're ready for real game action, but now some of the best arms in the game have to be ready after 2-3 weeks of loosening up. I'm just glad that the Mets have no pitchers in the tournament.
