dual no hitter through 1

A PR win means the Puerto Ricans meet the Honkballers in the semifinals, giving the Dutch a decent shot at the championship game. (It's 0-0 after four.)

and it means we get to see the dr and japan that will be a good match up
   4. Mess with the Meat, you get the Wad! Posted: March 16, 2013 at 02:41 PM (#4389504)
well now its a dr rematch, either way should be some good games in the next round

I'm actually hoping for PR to pull this off. I'd be really happy with any of PR/DR/Honkbal winning, I don't want Japan to threepeat.
   6. Mess with the Meat, you get the Wad! Posted: March 16, 2013 at 02:56 PM (#4389511)
both japan and the dutch will have a fully rested pitching staff which gives them both an advantage, I think the DR is the only team with the depth to take them on
   7. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 03:26 PM (#4389519)
Yeah, the DR bullpen is pretty good. Lots of very hard throwers. I think Japan has to be the favorite thanks to being rested, but they and the Dominicans are 1A and 1B.
   8. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 03:35 PM (#4389527)
Huge out at 3rd.
   9. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 03:55 PM (#4389539)
That's a big insurance run.
   10. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 04:06 PM (#4389542)
Tying run at the plate. Time to be a hero, Eddie Rosario.
   11. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: March 16, 2013 at 04:08 PM (#4389544)
Japan v. PR, DR v. Holland. Should be really good games in San Fran.
   12. Gamingboy Posted: March 16, 2013 at 04:24 PM (#4389552)
I predict Japan vs. DR... which, I got to say, is probably the best match-up in the WBC that doesn't feature the USA.

Of course, the Netherlands have beaten the Dominicans before, and this year's Dutch team is better than the previous one...
