I haven't written much (anything?) about the WBC simply because I wasn't that "into it". I watched bits and pieces here and there but it wasn't must see baseball for me. I kept track of the standings and who advanced. I was geeked by the Netherlands beating the DR twice. But, I caught the end of the do-or-die game last night between the USA and Puerto Rico.
[David] Wright looped a two-run single into right field off Fernando Cabrera to finish a three-run ninth inning and vault the United States to a dramatic 6-5 victory in the World Baseball Classic. The Americans advanced to the semifinals while the stunned Puerto Ricans were eliminated.
And I won't even discuss how Jeter failed to keep a ball hit to his left IN the infield to let the 5th run score in the top of the ninth. That the team won will forever bury this factoid.
And also, I found it, um, interesting that JC Romero was allowed to play given that he'll be serving a 50 game suspension for PED use.
