Although there are months away, there are talks on 2006 World Baseball Classic in the Rangers’ clubhouse.
Catcher Rod Barajas hopes to be asked to play for the Mexican team, and he is willing to play the 16-team tournament next spring. As for All-Star shortstop Michael Young, who is under consideration by U.S., said he will play if asked. Young is interested in playing anywhere — even at his former position of second base.
Looks like World Baseball Classic is getting hot in Texas.
