The link for when it starts can be found here.

Colombia is sending out Karl Triana (Diamondbacks organization) against Alberto Acosta for Panama.

This game is live on TV in Canada if you get Sportsnet One.

It's glorious to see live baseball on TV in late November.

That was a weird top of the first. I'll probably catch the end of the game...

I forgot this game started at 7 and not 8, expecting to see the pre-game and saw it's already 5-0.

Any reason why MLB Network is only showing the finals to these brackets? Nice to know they think showing "Best of International Talk" is a better programming choice than live baseball for a tournament they are trying to generate interest in...

Hey announcers, Patino hasn't been in the game for 2 innings now...

I honestly have to wonder if it's some type of experiment with seeing how many people would use online.

Another possibility is so that they are equal with the first two qualifiers, which were happening during the season and thus there was actual other live baseball that was being shown.

Wow, another bad call against Panama. I take it Velasquez had some kind of injury a few years ago. How can someone who once stole 41 bases run so slow?
   10. Gamingboy Posted: November 18, 2012 at 09:40 PM (#4305726)
Hang on, what's going on?
   11. Gamingboy Posted: November 18, 2012 at 09:40 PM (#4305727)
What'd I miss?

Both benches were warned this inning after a brushback pitch. The home run (by Ruben Rivera) followed, and apparently Eduardo Perez was ejected for either complaining about the warning or the strike zone.
   13. Gamingboy Posted: November 18, 2012 at 09:43 PM (#4305731)
Okay. Thanks. I left again for a sec and I got back and I was like WTF?
   14. Gamingboy Posted: November 18, 2012 at 09:50 PM (#4305733)
I worry about Brazil tomorrow. The Panamanians appear to have remembered how to hit.
   15. Gamingboy Posted: November 18, 2012 at 10:25 PM (#4305742)
Colombia has remembered how to hit too!
   16. Gch exhales the vast drunken folly of Epicurus Posted: November 18, 2012 at 10:28 PM (#4305744)
If Colombia wins, do the horns stop? I need a rooting interest, and "no more horns" is currently winning.
   17. Gamingboy Posted: November 18, 2012 at 10:35 PM (#4305747)
The horns, cripple, the horns...

I have no idea.

To paraphrase Mota:

Colombian baseball fans, much like many other fans, should just blame Vicente Padilla. No, wait, that was Nicaragua.
