US faces Dominican Republic in WBC ‘17 | MLB.com

It’s payback time for the United States. Team USA will send Danny Duffy to the mound. The Dominican Republic will counter with Ervin Santana in his first start of the tournament.
“It’s going to be a great game [Saturday],” Jones said. “We are going to bring what we got. We are facing Ervin Santana, somebody that is familiar with most of the players, so we will give it all we got and they are going to give it all they got. Hopefully, it’s a great game.”

Having the starting pitcher not crap himself and put us in a 4-0 hole right away would be a nice plus.

Also not having a relief pitcher give up 4 runs to finish blowing what was once a 5 run lead would be nice.

Giancarlo Stanton is hitting 7th or something. Why?
   5. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: March 18, 2017 at 10:20 PM (#5419404)
Good, so Crawford has something to make up for now.
Double Error = 2 homeruns.

Jesus !

It's bee cool if we could catch the ball
   7. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: March 18, 2017 at 10:32 PM (#5419408)
Ok, so one mistake made up, only 1 homerun by Brandon needed now.
Don't know why Stanton is so far down, maybe he has a cracked fingernail.

I know Hosmer has hit well in these games, but does anyone think he's a better player than Paul Goldschmidt? Why does he keep starting?

You need to time your questions better !
   10. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: March 18, 2017 at 10:52 PM (#5419418)
The question is, what do you do with 2 men on, 2 runs down, no outs and Stanton @bat ?

I take that back.

This is going better.

I hope Cutch gets out of this whole WBC thing well.
Meaning : hope he finds a hot girfriend, so he can rock the 2017 season !
   14. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: March 18, 2017 at 11:34 PM (#5419431)
Doink !

Whose idea was it to play these games at 10pm Eastern on a little-watched cable channel?
   16. Tin Angel Posted: March 18, 2017 at 11:39 PM (#5419435)
That Stanton bomb was nuts. 117 mph off the bat.
   17. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: March 18, 2017 at 11:40 PM (#5419436)
This is going better.


Lucroyious speed !

Stanton was still in the on-deck circle when his homerun hit the second deck.

Do they allow/use replay in the semifinals and final of the WBC ?
Seems like every second call in Spring Training and the WBC is a wrong call.
   20. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: March 19, 2017 at 12:31 AM (#5419461)
Good work by Neshek to get through that.
   21. Meatwad Posted: March 19, 2017 at 01:11 AM (#5419466)
Jones robs a home run and the next batter cano goes long to pull the dr with in 1. His home run wss also almost robbed.
   22. Jose is an Absurd Doubles Machine Posted: March 19, 2017 at 01:31 AM (#5419469)
This is too much excitement for March 18
   23. Meatwad Posted: March 19, 2017 at 01:57 AM (#5419471)
Hell,of a game and a huge win for the us. The players for the dr seemed pissed to lose. A great way to spend march leading up to the season
