This should be a fun game tonight. cant wait for tomorrow, IIRC the DR has not lost a game this time through.

If Italy wins it's next 3 games it will guarantee a team from Europe in the finals.

South American Pope. Bad sign for Italy tonight.

I'm a bit disappointed by the fan turnout ofnthe Dominicans and Puerto Ricans. Maybe there aren't as many in Miami as I'd assumes. Too bad they can't do a round in New York.

Man, Puerto Rico ain't hitting.

I don't believe there are large populations of either in Miami. (The big Puerto Rican population in Florida is (or was) in Central Florida.)

I'm disappointed my article about the WBC ratings overseas wasn't accepted. I might have been too sarcastic in pretending to think the WBC sucked. But man do Americans who think that no one likes this come across as the worst sort of parochial egocentric pricks.

Huh. It's not April First, and this appears to be true.

I commented in the other thread (the one about how the WBC sucks) about something I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere. To wit: the pitch count limits help offset the small sample size of the tournament format. Forcing multiple pitchers to go to the mound makes each game a little closer to a whole series.

Discuss.

I think there is something to that.

Beyond that I think it creates some interesting tactical situations. It's interesting to see how managers deal with the impending pitch count limits.
   12. Jose is El Absurd Bronson Y Pollo Posted: March 13, 2013 at 09:12 PM (#4387975)
One other nice thing from a MLB team perspective is that I like the idea of my guys getting into some pressure situations. For example seeing Jose de la Torre in a situation like last inning seems more useful from an evaluative standpoint than seeing him pitch against a bunch of Blue Jay AA hitters in Fort Myers would.

Can we get a checklist just so we can check "Conradian error" off two or three times, maybe in bold?
   14. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: March 13, 2013 at 09:33 PM (#4387986)
GRANATO !!!
   15. Jose is El Absurd Bronson Y Pollo Posted: March 13, 2013 at 09:35 PM (#4387987)
Wow can't help but feel bad for the guy. That was painful to watch
   16. Tschingsch Posted: March 13, 2013 at 09:50 PM (#4387995)
We definitely need a checklist for the Championship rounds...

Clarence, care to post the link here? I'd love to read it. And yes, agree 100% on parochial egocentric pricks part!
   18. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:19 PM (#4388013)
This game is getting pretty interesting.
   19. Gch exhales the vast drunken folly of Epicurus Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:23 PM (#4388015)
Sutcliffe on Brian Sweeney "10 years ago he was one of the top prospects in the Mariners organization".

10 years ago Sweeney was a 29 year old pitching in Tacoma for the 4th time (without making the majors once). He got brought up in September to get some garbage time innings. I'm not trying to rag on Sutcliffe, I'm just utterly baffled by that description and wondering if Seattle had some other Sweeney.
   20. Gch exhales the vast drunken folly of Epicurus Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:30 PM (#4388016)
That throw was horrible.
   21. Gamingboy Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:30 PM (#4388017)
I will probably make a checklist for the finals at least.

This game reminds me a bit of the DR-Italy game.
   22. Gch exhales the vast drunken folly of Epicurus Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:31 PM (#4388018)
Italy is melting down.
   23. Gamingboy Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:32 PM (#4388020)
!!!!
   24. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:34 PM (#4388021)
And the Italian bullpen gets wrecked in the 8th inning once again.
   25. Gch exhales the vast drunken folly of Epicurus Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:35 PM (#4388022)
I wouldn't even say it's the bullpen. If Denorfia doesn't attempt the heroic throw to home, Rios can't score from second.

This is embarrassing for Italy.
   26. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:40 PM (#4388023)
Hopefully this is the end of Team Gabagooool
   27. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:40 PM (#4388024)
Hopefully this is the end of Team Gabagooool
   28. Meatwad Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:43 PM (#4388026)
that did not touch the plate
   29. Gamingboy Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:45 PM (#4388028)
Poor Nick Punto. Of all the Nick Puntos in the world, he's the Nick Punto-est.
   30. Meatwad Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:45 PM (#4388027)
horse #### call that was ball 4 should be 1 out man on first
   31. Meatwad Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:52 PM (#4388031)

   32. Gamingboy Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:55 PM (#4388032)
Ciao, Italia. Puerto Rico stays alive.
   33. Der-K: downgraded to lurker Posted: March 13, 2013 at 10:55 PM (#4388033)
F-cabbed!

This was a fun ball game.
