In response to Softlaw1's comment:
Spring training is for timing. Shane should not be allowed to play. The farm hands who will not be called up and will play a short minor league season, it would be good experience as a substitute for the fall league.
No one under a MLB contract should be allowed to play without agreeing to a new medical physical testing review, after the WBC, that allows the Red Sox to void the contract if managment decides the player is damaged goods.
Another anti-"labour" rant, Softy? Injuries while playing for one's country is a major issue, but you can't hold the players responsible when they are representing their country. The best solution is insurance paid for by the WBC/other that compenstates the club teams for their assets being damaged while the damaged players continue to receive the salary due them form their club team.
not sure who's paying sonics
''Tournament eligibility is based upon insurance coverage — meaning, a player’s contract would have to be guaranteed in the event of injury while participating in the WBC''
