Ortiz: A-Rod to play for Dominican

According to David Ortiz, Alex Rodriguez plans to play for the Dominican Republic during the World Baseball Classic this spring.

“He wants to play for the Dominican team,” Ortiz said by telephone Thursday. “We’ll talk about it now after he gets here, and he’ll probably announce it here.”

Ortiz said he has not spoken recently with Rodriguez about his intentions, but that as far back as the All-Star Game last July in New York, he said A-Rod had expressed a desire to play for the Dominican Republic.
Rodriguez played for the United States in 2006 and struggled in making that decision.

I wonder how people will respond to this. I personally think the WBC is silly, so I don't care what Rodriguez does. However, if his heart is really with the Dominican Republic, I wouldn't want him representing my country anyway.

Who cares about the WBC?
A-Rod can play for Team Mars for all I care.
It is his performance in clutch situation next season that matters.

Agreed. He'd probably end up hurting the US in the clutch. ;)

I agree with Raven King and just blogged about this. Team Mars? Interesting. Maybe the Yankees could recruit some of their amateur players.
