WBC Update for Oct. 13, 2012: Lots of news from the past week

Koji Yamamato will manage Japan, Edwin Rodriguez will manage Puerto Rico.

-Hensley “Bam-Bam” Meulens will reportedly manage the Netherlands. Meulens is from Curacao and is thus a citizen of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. In fact, he’s been knighted.

-Nobody knows if Yu Darvish will take part in the WBC.

-Oceania’s national teams will get in some WBC practice against the Australian Baseball League. Team Australia will play Sydney in a 3-game series later this month, while New Zealand will face the Canberra Cavalry in November before their qualifying round.

-The NY Daily News reports that Willie Randolph will be one of Joe Torre’s coaches for Team USA.

-Other managers or possible managers: Kim-Im Sik for Korea, John McLaren for China, Rick Renteria for Mexico and Tony Pena for the DR.

-Not surprisingly, the Philippines is trying to get Filipino-Americans to play for them in the qualifiers.

Meulens was the first MLB player from Curacao and has played for the Dutch team in a number of international competitions. In the 2000 Olympics, he had the game-winning hit against Cuba which was a huge upset at the time.

I've seen it happen a few times but I've never had the problem with a submission.
