Barry Larkin will manage Brazilian National Team in World Baseball Classic


Newly-minted Hall of Famer Barry Larkin has been hired to manage the Brazilian team in the upcoming World Baseball Classic. Given the short and relatively scant history of baseball in Brazil, I'm pretty confident in saying that their best hope is having him bat lead-off and play SS.

Fewer players starting '09 on DL, MLB.com misses story


According to The Associated Press, the 2009 Major League season began Sunday evening with 69 players on the disabled list, a sharp reduction of injuries compared to 2008, when 106 players began the year on the DL, and 2007, when the number was 97. The only lower total since MLB expanded to 30 teams in 1998, according to the Commissioner's Office, which gave the information to the AP, was the 66 players who opened the season on the DL in 2006. These comparatively healthy Opening Day statistics seem to refute the notion that the recently completed second World Baseball Classic caused more injuries than a normal Spring Training. The inaugural Classic was played in 2006.
