[i]Originally posted by my dumb ass in the Hot Stove thread
but i do have a feeling that many of the players, esp. pitchers, who are expected to play in the world baseball classic will come down with some sort of ailment between now and spring training...

NEW YORK (AP) -- Pedro Martinez and Manny Ramirez might drop off the Dominican Republic's team in the World Baseball Classic.

Martinez, who has a toe injury, still hasn't pitched off a mound in spring training for the New York Mets. He said Thursday he will definitely miss the first round of the tournament.

"Our understanding is that Pedro, very frankly, is doubtful," said Gene Orza, the No. 2 official of the players' association. "It's still possible he will play, but I think it's at best 50-50 right now."

Francisco Rodriguez has also backed out for the Dominicans, they went quickly from favorite to long shot.

Janet Jones took them at 3-1, she's gonna be upset.

if i'm a gm or owner of an mlb team i wouldnt want any of my pitchers pitching in this thing, so if i am a mets fan i would be elated that pedro won't be pitching in it.

rick ankiel update..

Cardinals agreed to terms with OF Rick Ankiel, RHP Brad Thompson and RHP Anthony Reyes on one-year contracts.

Ankiel remains out of options, so the Cardinals are going to have to put him on waivers if they attempt to send him down. He's unlikely to win a reserve spot with So Taguchi, Larry Bigbie and John Rodriguez all close to locks to make the team.


sidney ponson and anthony reyes will be duking it out for the 5th spot in the rotation as well. im hoping reyes wins it.

I give Ankiel credit for still trying make himself a decent mlb player.

As a Cubs fan, I hope Ankiel comes back as a pitcher, and I hope Ponson wins the battle.

Something tells me if the Cards put Ankiel on waivers, they won't have to worry too much about him clearing.

If your option was try switching from a hit the mascot type pitcher to an outfielder for about $100k/year or load sheetrock at Home Depot for $30k/year, which would you choose.

Well the Home Depot ads certainly portray the Olympic athletes that work there as living the good life.
