After an eight run inning, the USA beat Team Venezuela 15-6 in Sundayâ€™s World Baseball Classic. The win assured Team USA a spot in the second round of the World Baseball Classic.
The USA will play in Pool C in Miami. The round is scheduled for next weekend but is currently being dismissed with a wanking motion by me.
Honestly, who cares about this crap? The WBC is about as interesting as the daily Chris Brown update. All this is a waste of time for the purpose of, I donâ€™t knowâ€¦injuring half your pitching staff. Is this even televised on ESPN: the Ocho? I guess this is for foreigners that care about crap like the soccer world cup.
Not to dismiss soccer as the lower tier sport that it is; baseball doesnâ€™t work that way. I love the USA and I love many players from the USA. I also hate many players from the USA. I care more about what team the player plays for. Team loyalty trumps national origin.
I really hope this is the last year of this ill-thought experiment.
