I feel stupid even reporting this, because chances are I'll have to edit it at some point in the near future, but as of this very second, Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez WILL play in the World Baseball Classic, and he WILL play for the UNITED STATES.
Now, to be fair to dear Alex, I understand how difficult the decision must have been. I mean, he was only born in New York, raised in Miami, and employed as the richest man in baseball in Seattle, Arlington, Texas, and New York. Other than that, he has no connection whatsoever to the United States. He totally spent, like, at least two summers in the Dominican Republic when he was four or five years old.
