I hate the WBC

I don't get it, really. Who gives a crap which team wins the World Baseball Championship? I'm an American, and proud to be so, but if Team USA wins this thing, does it affect my life in any way?
A-Rod (who, BTW is sitting out due to injury/surgery) was supposed to play for the Dominican Republic. He was born in NYC. Hold on, let me get a map, and see what that makes him.
Oh wait, he did live in the DR for a few years, but by his teen years he was living in Miami. Ok, back to the map...and this guy is an American, so why in hell would he play for the DR? Because his parents were born there? That is just stupid.
How many generations does this go back? Should the American team strictly be Native Americans?

Now pitching for Team USA, Sharting Buffalo.

I want to see the Yankees play the Cubs, not the Chinese play the Koreans.

Alex Rodriguez to get hip surgery

It is reported that A-Rod will get the hip surgery and be out 6-8 weeks. This is a 2 stage operation, and he will need part 2 after the season ends.I am glad he is getting this done rather than drag it out all season.

We can expect to see him back sometime in May.

In other news, CC Sabathia did well in his outing, as did Wang.

We saw the game Wang started, and he threw 3 innings and other than a solo HR, he did well. He made a nice play fielding a bunt, and threw strikes. The staff is rounding into shape. The team has plenty of offense to make up for A-Rod's absence, and will only get better when he comes back.
