    interesting

    My sources have informed me that this is indeed the last World Cup. The World Baseball Classic will be the World Championship event, and in the off years, so in 2015 and 2019 they will hold the Premier 12 Tournament. The Premier 12 Tournament will consist of the top 12 teams from the prior World Baseball Classic. It is believed that the Premier Tournament will be run under similar rules as the World Cup, meaning no 40 man roster players and such..

    Interesting...

    Looks like my pick of Australia was correct. I got 7 out of 8 teams right, which I think is pretty good, my only error being choosing the Dominican Republic over South Korea. The Dominicans could have made it with better managing and/or relief pitching.

    USA is playing terrible unless we can get on a roll were not sniffing the medal games. Also, Australia has been on a tear offensively, I personally would like to see them or the Dutch take the gold.

    True dat.if the USA doesn't win. I don't want Cuba to win I'm tired of them going to the finals every year. I like to see a new country like the Dutch or any country for that matter.

    Definitely made a resurgence after the atrocious opening three games. I would have gone with the DR too, they've been a huge disappointment in this tourney.

    Australia is on a roll but they still need to lift a little in the next phase of the contest. Cuba is usually the team to beat because they take this competition very seriously and don't have to rely on MLB players for their strength. Is this being televised anywhere in USA?

    As far as I know, no US TV this time around. MLB Network carried a few games in 2009, but there were no MLB playoffs going on at the same time in '09...

    Cuba is playing tough because they've lost the last two Cups. This is more of a matter of pride for them.

    ok here is an inside view from BWC

    Panama is doing a really good job for the teams and the organization was much better then in Taiwan. Although you have to handle a bit with the latin stressfree style ;-)

    We should have beaten Nicaragua and probably Korea. I donīt want to be "if this, or that, because" etc but you have to know we had some problems in our flight program so it took us 2,5 days to get to Panama and we arrived just a few hours before gametime.
    Against Korea we where on the rise and I am pretty sure we would have won the game if it would have continiued regulary.

    You also have to have a look at the schedule to see that Australia was lucky the played teams that allready qualified for the next round so their opponents took it easy. We did not have this luck and maybe we would have won a game with another schedule.
    But no excuses you have to win games to advance no matter what.

    Holland and Panama surprised in positive way a bit and I hope Halland goes for the Final as they are playing really strong. USA and Japan are a bit upset for me, also Chinese Taipei.
    The only thing you know is you never know and that you know for sure!
