He's back. And he's not as negative about the WBC as I had expected. Maybe even he had to admit it's been pretty damn good. But the best part of the article is at the end, where he quotes Joe Torre discussing Team USA's early exit:
"It's no-win situation. You are supposed to [win] and if you don't you are a failure."
Weird - I'm sure I've heard Torre say that exact same thing before. But...doesn't he usually wait until October?
