So for all of you baseball nuts out there, the World Baseball Classic starts in just under an hour and a half with China taking on Japan.

I'm hoping the US takes it...but with their injuries, I think the Cubans end up winning it this year.

This Puerto Rico/Panama matchup isn't too bad, even though PR is up like 3-0.

Oh and LOL at the Dominicans losing to the Netherlands.

They're always the best team on paper, but fold up when the real games start.

Apparently he's from Panama..I thought that was strange too.

I didn't think I would be into the WBC at all, but I have to admit, I've enjoyed watching the games. That USA vs. Canada game was really good. Both teams genuinely cared and the crowd was great. I'm hooked now.

I saw us on the comeback trail but didn't get to watch it as I was working sort of. I'm glad we won though, I think this team is really trying to win this thing this year.

Davey Johnson cost Team USA the game against Japan. Instead of using Dunn as a DH and putting Victorino in RF, and JRoll at SS, he starts Jeter at SS and Jeter made all kinds of errors and doesn't get to balls that JRoll would have fielded easily. Dunn in RF was a total joke. Victorino was up and would have done more than Evan Longorio who struck out and stranded a man at 3B. No wonder the Mets always sucked when Davey managed them. :rolleyes2:
