Keith Hernandez would not have played in the WBC
I spoke to SNY's Keith Hernandez last week about a variety of topics, one of them the World Baseball Classic.
I assume at some point Hernandez has offered his thoughts on whether he would have participated during his playing days, but you don't expect me actually to watch spring training games, do you?
"I would not have played," he said. "I would not have risked it. Im getting paid to play for the New York Mets and I just think thats what youre paying me for."
"The timings all wrong and it gets in the way of preparation for the season and that's ultimately what its all about. Suppose I had a career-ending injury? I would not have played."
