re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Yeah he and Profar look to be starting in AAA as of right now. Both will get the call in a few months if they're mashing the ball I'd think. Wash will have to figure out where to play them since Daniels has said they won't be bench players. Berkman will be on the DL in a few months/tomorrow and I don't know what Moreland can do full time, plus Andrus could be traded. Perhaps it plays itself out.

Then there's that Super 2 stuff that I barely understand. No clue what their status is with that or even if the Rangers care.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

If they get called up before late June, they probably qualify for Super 2. But that's probably not going to happen, unless the offense tanks and Daniels gets desperate in May to call one or both of them up.

It took about seven weeks of torture by the Giants' patchwork offense in 2010 to bring up Buster Posey.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

I can confirm that that is true. AT&T Park has emailed me a few times today telling me that there are $5 tickets available.

Don't know why you'd say that. Just because it's not catching on in the US (even though the US/DR game was MLB Networks highest rated non-playoff game ever) doesn't mean other countries don't care about it. More Japanese people were watching the WBC than the Olympics and PR had like 74% of all households watching the end of their game last night. It's gaining traction around the world, and that's all the MLB really wants.

Meh, I would be in favor of having baseball in the olympics more than continuing the WBC.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

Players aren't gonna leave for 2 weeks during the middle of the season and the MLB wouldn't want that. Plus IOC wouldn't want to bring back girls softball as the equivalent since it'd just be USA winning it each time. This is as close as you'll get.

re: MLB: ONE WEEK!

The WBC isn't even the WBC....I mean it's called the WORLD baseball classic, yet it involves like...8 teams? (Haven't really payed attention, cause I hate it). 8 teams out of a shit ton of countries IN THE WORLD. I would watch it if it was all amateurs, no one that has ever been in the majors. If you were in the majors in your career at one point, or currently are then you can't play in it. Then that would make it exciting, amateurs actually playing their hearts out for the WBC, maybe then the USA would win since they obviously don't get 2 shits currently.
