Sould Ortiz Play in the WBC?

Given that Ortiz has been hurt for the last 2 seasons, should he participate in the upcoming World Baseball Classic? Let's face it, Big Papi's knee is going to be a reoccurring problem and the more games he plays the harder it is going to be for him to generate power. Playing for the Dominican Republic must be an honor for him (even though he became an American citizen last year), but he should consider the risks. The WBC begins on March 5 and tickets for the games in San Diego and LA go onsale today.

I think he should pass. While the WBC is a sham, I mean honor to play in. He should concentrate on who pays him. If he is still in rough shape this season, it may make sense to look into the Prince trade.
