Somewhere near the top of my “things I did not expect to see” list was a tweet announcing J.P. Arencibia of the Toronto Blue Jays participating in the World Baseball Classic. Wow. Wow?
It isn’t that Arencibia is a bad choice, just a peculiar one. Putting on my speculation hat, my wandering mind wonders if there is a connection between Arencibia’s inclusion and R.A. Dickey‘s role with the team. While JPA hasn’t caught Dickey in a professional capacity, the two Tennessee residents did get some reps a few weeks back.
