With all the players backing out of the World Baseball Classic in March, and questions about how well people will pitch because they haven't warmed up, perhaps MLB should consider moving the classic to November, after the World Series. That way, if a player got a minor injury they could recover in the three months before spring training. The pitchers would also be in shape in general and have less risk of injury.
I think the World Baseball Classic might be a cool exhibition but the quality of play can't be that good, or at least not as good as it could be.
