WBC World Baseball Classic  2017: Schedule And Broadcasting Information

The World Baseball Classic starts on Monday, the media in Boston and around the country generally has a pretty negative perception of the events. Personally I tend to be on the negative side of an event that forces players to play competitive ball earlier than they normally do, and this has caused players to sometimes to get worn down as the season progresses.

But no matter what my feelings might be on the event they are still going off as scheduled and are likely here to stay. For the Boston Red Sox they have  infielder Xander Bogaerts (Netherlands), starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez (Venezula), relief pitcher Fernando Abad (Dominican Republic). Red Sox slugger Hanley Ramirez was going to participate on behalf of the DR but he was pulled this past week as he is dealing with a lingering shoulder injury that has caused him to only play DH in Spring Training.

On the minor-league side Boston has a couple of players going as well, pitcher Daniel McGrath (Australia), pitcher Ryan Oduber (Netherlands), and infielder Mike Meyers (Israel).
