Does anyone really care about this? I think it is a tremendous waste of time to hold this at this time of year. It disrupts Spring Training and increases the potential for injuries. If having a world classic is so important, why not hold it after the season?

I remember when there was a true World Baseball Classic...it was called the Olympics. They never should have cancelled baseball as a sport in said games.

First of all, I care and I'm not alone.

Second, you'd be an idiot to hold it after the season. For one reason, the players are tired after a 162 game season plus playoffs for a lot of these guys. For another reason, you're well in to football season at that point and nobody is going to pay attention to the WBC when they can watch NFL and college football.
