Chipper Jones rips the WBC

MIAMI -- More bad news for Team USA and the World Baseball Classic, and the Americans didn't even play today.

But Chipper Jones returned to the Braves camp after leaving Team USA with an injury, and he told David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he wouldn't play in the WBC again, if it's played under the same format.

"There's some serious problems with the WBC setup," Jones told O'Brien.

Jones complained about the number of off-days in this year's WBC. Team USA played just once in five days before opening the second round of the tournament last Saturday. Jones played in that game, then left the team Sunday when he aggravated a rib cage injury he suffered last week in Toronto.

Others with Team USA, manager Davey Johnson included, have also complained about the number of off days.

Team USA will play Tuesday night's elimination game against the Venezuela-Puerto Rico loser with only 11 healthy position players. Ryan Braun is unavailable after straining his side in Sunday's game. Neither Jones nor Braun can be replaced on the roster in this round.

The Americans will also be without reliever Matt Lindstrom, who hurt his shoulder Sunday night. But with 10 other relievers on the roster, Lindstrom's absence shouldn't be a factor.
