USA Today - Adrian Gonzalez returned to Los Angeles Dodgers camp in Arizona on Wednesday, but his mind was still very much on Mexico - and its controversial exit from the World Baseball Classic.
Gonzalez tore into Major League Baseball for its handling of the World Baseball Classic, vowing he'll never again play in the event after Mexico was eliminated on a complex runs-allowed tiebreaker that saw it denied a chance at a tiebreaker game by a mere one-hundredth of a run.
Understandably, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was irked by the controversial tiebreaker that led to Team Mexico's exit from the World Baseball Classic. He did not hold back when asked about the matter.
Gonzalez told MLB Officials: "You guys are unaccountable. Don't account for your actions. You guys have no integrity."— David Vassegh (@THEREAL_DV) March 15, 2017
Gonzalez said Team Mexico tried contacting MLB Officials BEFORE the game for clarity on how to advance, but got NO response back.— David Vassegh (@THEREAL_DV) March 15, 2017
On a more positive note as it relates to Dodgers fans, the veteran slugger is back in camp, seemingly healthy, and is expected to return to the lineup shortly.
Adrian Gonzalez will participate in camp today and expects to be back in #Dodgers lineup tomorrow. No issues with his right elbow.— David Vassegh (@THEREAL_DV) March 15, 2017
