The MLB world saw plenty of exciting baseball over the past few weeks.
That is because the World Baseball Classic was as good as ever.
Many of the star players from the MLB joined their countries’ teams and it made for a competitive tournament.
But now that the WBC is over, each player has returned to their organization to continue spring training.
After playing in high-intensity games in the WBC, returning to meaningless spring training is a tough transition.
That is exactly what Chicago White Sox pitcher Lance Lynn thought.
According to Daryl Van Schouwen, Lynn said spring training was “completely boring”.

The WBC was full of packed stadiums and the energy was outstanding.
Every player understood what it meant to play for their country and that is why it meant so much to them.
Also, we only get the WBC every three years, so you have to make the most of the opportunity while it is there.
It will be interesting to see how the WBC players start the MLB season.
They could be more prepared to get into real games because they already played in a bunch.
The WBC was great for baseball and it helped increase its worldwide popularity.
You can even expect that more star players will want to join their countries next time around.
With MLB opening day only a few days away, it is time for all of the games to matter.NEXT: MLB Reveals All The 2023 Opening Day Starters
