Wario Strikes Back

So, from what I’ve been told, not only the AL East, but the season as a whole is already locked up. It’s all done and it’s only February. Meanwhile, King George is down in Florida, cackling gleefully like Wario: “That’sa right! I’ma gonna win!” See, I was under the impression the Yankees had tried the “let’s spend lots of money and bring in a bunch of superstars to win a championship” strategy 5 times in the last 5 years and had oh, nothing to show for it, but that’s why I run a blog and he’s a millionare who owns a baseball team.

Meanwhile, Manny Ramirez will not be playing the World Baseball Classic. Pedro Martinez will not be playing in the first round of the WBC…and possibly not in the tournament at all. The major league umpires are demanding too much money to officiate, so they’re going to be using minor league umpires instead. I mean, the whole tournament was a bit of a joke before, but it’s getting to the point of ridiculousness; is there going to be anyone to watch when the WBC starts? If Major League Baseball does this event again, they might want to run in a different part of the year. Winter, perhaps, when there’s no baseball. I think that would work well.
