I don't like before the season, and I don't like after the season. Peter Gammons doesn't have an answer for this after a million years of observing the game. His best answer: middle of the season--which might be the worst scenario. With that said, I think the WBC is off the hook, which means that I like it. Would much rather watch IT than Spring Training.
Just hope the Dominicans don't ride Cueto and Volquez too hard.
