Well, from the sounds of it, he backed out, the flake that he is... : P

Lara, keep up the good reporting -- I'll see you Thursday!

When rosters were released, Alex Rodriguez was named to the Dominican team, though he is saying now that he is unsure of whether or not he will play at all.

A-Rod has changed his mind too many times, so we'll just have to wait and see which he team he will represent, or if he'll even play at all.
