  • Are you interested in the WBC?

    Since I have noticed some negative thoughts about the WBC among US members and a lot of positive thoughts among non US members, I was wondering how you all feel about the upcoming WBC.

          I love the idea.. and have been wanting to see it happen for years... the only thing that I do not like is when they are holding it. I would rather see them play it at the end of the season as opposed to before the season.

            I am extremely excited about it.

            As for television coverage, do any US stations have rights to it yet?

I didn't realize that that was the only day." - Moonlight Graham

                  oh yeah, is Cuba in or out?

                  I'm extremely excited about the WBC. Almost everyday I see what players in the MLB are going to be playing for their ethnic countries.

                  I hope the U.S. wins. The Dominican Republic and Japan are going to be tough. Certain teams like Korea should be push-overs. Does anyone know if Castro has agreed to send a team? Wouldn't that be a great final?

                      I'm not overly excited about the format, but it's baseball, so I'll watch.

                            I think it's a great idea although I'm not to excited about the one game elimination. I'm going to watch it because it's baseball but with a one game elimination you can almost bet the two best teams won't make it to the final.

                              One game eliminatons are very common in international tournaments, no matter which sport.

                              World cup baseball uses it as well. Did Cuba ever not reach the final?
