Reports came out today indicating next year’s World Baseball Classic is expected to be axed. I did not see a reason other unnamed sources stating it isn’t “a priority” currently. Personally, I read “we’re too busy trying to put on a season at all” to worry about a tournament 10 months from now. The desire of some participants is also likely diminished by the Olympics, and its baseball tournament, already postponed until next summer. What would be the point of two international tournaments in one year? I’m very sure there are about 30 MLB managers who will be happy not having their players risking injury for not-their-team. It might get rescheduled to 2023. We’ll see.
