I'm not too worried about it...well basically because I'm a yankees fan and they seem to be doing well
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

WBC are probably more competitive than ST games, but the players still aren't near regular season condition, so many of them won't be performing up to par even if the enthusiasm is there.

I've been telling people that Teixeira is gonna regress this year! Finally the proof that everyone can see and nobody can dispute it.

Well assuming this quote is a joke... Even if the WBC had every player take 50 ABs, I would still completely ignore it. This event takes place way before anyone is ready for regular playing time... Use this event against people, and take players that fall late.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I'm probably most worried about Willis as he's gotten shelled in the WBC twice by mediocre lineups, and would find the plate more easily if he was blindfolded. He's my #1 starter in one league. :-o

If willis has another lousy outing or two i might bump him down a spot or two...

Usally i don't worry about Spring traing resluts for pitchers (unless thier velocity is way down :-o ) because they are trying out new things with pitches and trying to build up stamia. They usally don't care if they are getting outs. However Dontrell is in a competive tourneyment he should be trying to get outs... :-[

He and Zambrano are my aces in my Keeper League and I am not worried about D-Train. He needs time to get back in form. This is like a spring training for him. He is just not ready to have that kind of competition after the off-season

I'd be more worried about Willis because his defense is gonig to be much worse and his indicators didn't come close to supporting his numbers last year... IE he's bound to regress big time even without pitching worse.

Not that he's going to suck or anything, but he's going too early in drafts.
