It's not worth the risk of one player especially if he plays for the Sox to me.
Even Phil Rogers, as big a proponent of this farce as anybody who recently wrote that U.S. fans simply aren't going to embrace this and why should they? It's not like it's anything meaningful.
Tell you what, if this is such a big deal, so important then why doesn't "Proud to be Your" Bud ORDER every player to participate if asked? If you are going to have this tournament, then you have the best possible teams, not 3rd rate bench warmers.
So many of these players play winter ball anyway, what's the difference? Also, no sports league has forced all their stars to play. Come on, we all get that you hate Selig but you're reaching with that.
