Team USA already has four casualties from the Classic.
- Chipper Jones – strained oblique
- Dustin Pedroia – abdominal strain
- Ryan Braun – lower rib cage
- Matt Lindstrom – sore throwing shoulder
This is silly business, and why on earth are clubs agreeing to let its players participate???

There’s a place in sports for a little showboating now and then.
A fancy strut after a game-winning HR, some celebratory fist pumps after closing out a tough ninth inning…I’ve got no problem with that.
The catch is, knowing the appropriate time for such behavior.
One thing I appreciate about baseball is its unobstructed path to player retaliations.
