When people compile the "best of" list for 2013 baseball, I hope they remember this game.
It's got as much excitement as a World Series game right now.

The scary thing is that the loser has to face Cuba in an elimination game.

God, this is insane, Japan was down to their last ####### strike and then stole second and punched a single. who the F wrote this movie .

Nice. Bunt.

I might walk him

Taiwans plan to fall behind 2-0, 3-1 to every hitter is not a plan I would endorse.
   308. Random Transaction Generator Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:21 AM (#4383889)
REALLY nice bunt.
   309. Jose Remains The Most Absurd Thing on the Site Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:22 AM (#4383890)
All due respect to Taiwan I gotta think Cuba is thrilled with the Jaoanese comeback.
   310. RollingWave Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:22 AM (#4383891)
i want to kill a puppy, GAHHHHHHH
   311. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:23 AM (#4383892)
Well l, Japan vs. HONKBALL FEVER will be something at least.
   312. RollingWave Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:27 AM (#4383895)
time to out jap the japanese, kamakazi or bust!
   313. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:27 AM (#4383896)
Don't worry. Chien Mien Chang will save the day.
   314. Gamingboy Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:32 AM (#4383897)
This game isn't over with, Rollingwave. Please spare the puppies.
   315. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:34 AM (#4383899)
Don't bunt sillies...
   316. Random Transaction Generator Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:35 AM (#4383900)
I hope these teams meet in the finals (or semi-finals) of this pool. I want another game like this.
(Except at a slightly quicker pace, please.)
   317. RollingWave Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:37 AM (#4383901)
BANKAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
   318. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:38 AM (#4383902)
I told you!
   319. Jose Remains The Most Absurd Thing on the Site Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:38 AM (#4383903)
These games just don't end quietly do they?
   320. Gamingboy Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:39 AM (#4383904)
Want to know who are happy about this game?

The Netherlands.
   321. Random Transaction Generator Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:42 AM (#4383906)
They speak English in the CT dugout?

When the batter found a replacement bat, you could easily hear "Yeah, that's the one. That's the winner." quite clearly from his teammates.
   322. Gamingboy Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:44 AM (#4383908)
Oh, what a ballgame!
   323. Random Transaction Generator Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:44 AM (#4383909)
Heartbreak!
   324. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:46 AM (#4383910)
Alas...
   325. RollingWave Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:47 AM (#4383911)
GAHHH, this was the best team we've ever put together to be honest, ONE ####### STRIKE>


Japan is so going to 3 peat.

I get now why my sister (who was a Japanese boyfriend) didn't come home today, gah.

   326. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:50 AM (#4383912)
Its not over Rolling Wave. Get ready for Cuba!
   327. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: March 08, 2013 at 09:59 AM (#4383919)
And no way is this iteration of Japan threepeating. The Dominicans will slaughter them.
   328. RollingWave Posted: March 08, 2013 at 10:18 AM (#4383926)
Japan is simply unbeatable in close games, if you can blow them out early, you 'll win, but if it's close and late, they're like the greatest team ever. We didn't blow the game open with a couple of chance and that's that, GAHHHHHHHHHHHHH 1 ####### STRIKE

I think we have basically no chance against Cuba, this game was so emotionally and physically commmitted, we went 150% here and it's going to be a ugly backlash tomorrow, I'm not even sure who can start tomorrow now.

   329. ajnrules Posted: March 08, 2013 at 10:58 AM (#4383969)
Yeah, it sucks. First the Rangers, and now Taiwan. I'm done with the WBC for this year. It was fun, but last thing I want to see is Japan three-peating.
