The Elite 8

It was good to see the US show what they really can do in this tournament. Really, I had no doubts but Canada sure made me nervous and Mexico came out of nowhere. The US plays a strong team from Japan and we could be in line for an upset here. Not sure if Train is starting or not but I’d really like him to show the world his stuff. If this goes routine, he’ll bring his A-Game and dominate.

I thought Panama had a better team than they showed on the field. Maybe it was bad luck or just that the team didn’t click, but they just didn’t look all that good. To close out my blurb on the WBC….can we please keep politics out of the games?

You Can’t Win ‘Em All…
But they can sure try. The 10-6 loss to the NY Mets was only the second on the exhibition season and giving them an 8-2 mark. Again, the Fish are looking great together and we can only hope this extends into the regular season.

I just received my tickets to the game at Shea April 9th and I’m totally stoked100_0578 about it. Seems like it’s official once you get them in my opinion. It may appear that I’m making a big deal about going to one game, but I don’t have the luxury of making the trip to NY or Philly as much as I would like. At least locally I have AA baseball, which is a great thing.

    “….can we please keep politics out of the games?”

    We COULD, but then the announcers would either have to talk baseball or (fate worse than death) SHUT UP!

    I’ve watched a couple of games so far and luckily I haven’t been exposed to anything yet from the announcers. I’m basically commenting on what I have heard from the wire today. But there are certain places for politics and the WBC isn’t one of them. And anyone that knows anything can check out your other site which is quite good for their daily politics fix.

    “I’ve watched a couple of games so far and luckily I haven’t been exposed to anything yet from the announcers.”

    Then I gather you haven’t watched the games involving Cuba, as I have. One of the announcers, Orestes Destrade is a Cuban exile. The defection issue has been raised on more than one occasion. And Jose Mota had to ask Tony Perez whether he was rooting for Cuba (where he was born) or PR (where he lives now and where his son was born and plays).

    Geez, Bobby, with people like you around, I am going to have to pay more attention to keeping that other site up to date. But I would really rather write about baseball!

    Thanks.
