Every cloud has a silver lining, even if it's just a couple dollars saved
Unfortunately for both teams, their stars are going to miss substantial time due to injuries suffered at the World Baseball Classic.
The good news is that the World Baseball Classic will be paying their salaries during the time that they're on the disabled list.
The WBC is funded mostly by Major League Baseball anyway, so now all 30 teams will basically be paying for the salaries of a couple injured players on the Dodgers and Yankees, easily the two richest teams in baseball.
This will continue to further the debate of whether or not teams should send their best players to represent their respective country in the WBC.
Should teams send their players to risk injury while playing for a different team? Of course players can get injured anytime, but why add risk when the players aren't really even doing anything to benefit their MLB team? What do you think?
