March 6th-22nd WBC Again Disrupts MLB Schedule
World Baseball Classic will again disrupt the MLB season in 2017—ripping a hole in Spring Training from March 6th to March 22nd. And, you can be darned sure that some superstar will pull a hammy or twist a knee that keeps them out of their real team's lineup. This stupid tournament does nothing to enhance baseball's popularity worldwide—it's already firmly ensconced in Asia and will never grow beyond a dalliance anywhere else. If Major League Baseball really wanted to enhance the game's popularity, they'd play post-season games at reasonable hours so young people in the Western Hemisphere can actually watch the games.
