Rob Neyer and Curt Schilling echo our concerns (from the latest podcast) with pitchers’ participation in the World Baseball Classic. Yeah, the sample size is too small to determine whether it’s definitively bad for pitchers, but I just don’t like taking the chance with our young pitchers (especially with the recent Johnny Cueto phantom injury scare; I’m skittish).

The WBC concept is a good one; I just wish they could find a different time of year to play. At least Cueto and Edinson Volquez are on their way back to camp.
