Who pitches tomorrow for US?

If Canada gets in another fight today, will Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer throw down with each other? Lol

Mourneau doubles to lead off the 2nd, and Michael Saunders blasts a homer to RF to give the Canadians a 2-0 lead. Holland looks very hittable.

I was watching with the wife and I started getting pumped, I do not care if people do not like it, I do and I hope it stays. I have watched probably 7 full games. It's baseball and it is back.

I don't get why you wouldn't like it. I wish it was at a different time of the year but I'm not sure any time makes more sense than when they do it either.

It's the best time to do it. Doing it during the season isn't plausible. Doing it after the season would be difficult, asking the players to start up again just after ending. There's really no "good" time to do it.

It would be like goalies in a hockey fight. They'd pair off and grapple a bit so that they didn't get involved in the main stuff :P

Pretty much every decently high profile player in the WBC got a phone call and lecture after that mess. If there had been another fight they would have been standing in the dugout looking around awkwardly.

i watched the Italy/Doms game earlier, and the enthusiasm on this Dominican team is so cool to see..

There's like a comfort level (best way I can describe it) with these guys when they're around each other that is awesome to watch. They jump out of the dugout on every RBI, and have these little hand gestures, handshakes, high five thingys...etc that makes you want to root for them. You really don't see that with any other squad.

That being said, GO USA!

US up 3-0 on Puerto Rico in the 7th.

Great game of Americans playing Americans.

I know I railed against this whole thing and still think it could be better. That said, I'm more intrigued by this than I thought I'd be. Don't get me wrong, I care much more about the O's, but this is significantly more appealing than typical ST games.

I'm excited for the game tonight. Should be a great atmosphere, I wish I could be there.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

This is the premiere match-up of the whole WBC, IMO. Should be a great game.
