"The WBC's a great event, a great opportunity. I'm excited for it. But I've got to get ready for my guys, too," he said. "I'll try to be as ready as I can. I won't be in midseason form or anything. I'll go out there and try to prepare myself as best I can knowing also April 1 is when we get going."
I'm also glad Torre is reinforcing that message. Maybe it'll sink in and this 120 games nonsense will fade away quietly.
