    He should play all winter and be fined during the season for not bunting when third is open.

    Teixeira is just one of those guys who loses it when they hit 30 or so. It happens to many players, including Albert Pujols. Playing in the WBC isn't going to change anything.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it's time to pause and reflect.

    If you call Pujols hitting 42/118 in his age 30 season, 37/99 and then 30/105 in his age 32 season "losing it". even though his average declined the past 2 years, the guy is still putting up numbers that 85% of ML hitters would kill for.

    He's still losing it. His average isn't the only thing that's declined; his homeruns, and especially walks have gone way down. He's not much better than Kendrys Morales at this point.

    Are you kidding me?

    Edit: you must not follow baseball that much. Morales has only had one full season in the MLB. Granted he finished 5th in the MVP voting, but Pujols is a 3 time MVP, bro. Come on.

    This. This. This. Completely idiotic. Andy's old butt will be worn out by the all star break. Injury guaranteed!
    What are they thinking?
    The idiotic WBC always throws the participating players off their game for the year and causes too many injuries. Especially pitchers.
    One of Selig's most moronic ideas.
    Dump it.

    Because they don't want to ruin their aces for the year.
