    yeah, star players are more likely to make risky dives for balls in a game that means something (WBC) than a spring training game

    usually in spring training games, the guys making Web Gems on baseball tonight are the same guys just trying to make the team

      For that case, guys who are spring invitees or AAA guys being considered for September, they have to make efforts in order to impress the coaches and scouts. For a vet like Randy Johnson, if he has a poor start, he's still pencilled in for Opening Day, so he can take his time getting up to speed.

      Guys like Jeter, Damon and A-Rod, I don't think they'd need to impress that much in ST, since people are already familiar with what they can accomplish.

        The way i see it is that I rather miss part of the 06 season while playing for my country then boring myself in spring training as i try to concentrate with the pitchers jogging on the warning track.I would consider it an honor to take one for Team USA.

          But that's easy for you to say, because you're not the one paying these guys tens of millions of dollars to "bore themselves in spring training".

            but i doubt because Ortiz is out playing in the WBC that whoever pays him doesnt have enough money to feed his family.There are more important things than money.

              It's not about how much money the owner has, it's about the owner investing tens of millions on players to give it their all for his team, and if they get injured in the WBC they can't do that.

                Isn't that basically saying he doesn't like it because he doesn't like it?
                It's not saying he doesn't like it because he doesn't like it, it's saying he doesn't like it, period.
