Re: Quiet on the WMP front.
WMP wasn't sitting on his butt in the offseason. He was playing winter ball in the Dominican Republic. And he did very well, BTW.
Even if he's not playing, WMP can learn a lot talking to guys like Tejada, Pujols and Ortiz, with whom he can talk baseball in his own language.
...and I really doubt that WMP's playing in the WBC is the reason why Krivsky brought in Hatteberg.
