A-Rod Not Playing in WBC

As was reported at YanksBlog.com, A-Rod will be skipping the World Baseball Classic. Anyway, I saw this quote in an article:

In an e-mail to The Associated Press, union COO Gene Orza wrote, “We haven’t spoken yet. We will. And having known and respected him since he was a drafted, my suspicion is that, in the end, fans around the world will see Alex in a WBC uniform.”

How about respecting his decision, instead of implying that A-Rod loses respect for not playing?
