  • WBC times

    Im glad of the creation of the WBC. Much more excitng than those boring spring training games. But No one can ever see the games. There all on at 3:00 am or not on at all. You would think they would show them at better times because the games would get pretty good ratings. Its been pretty aggravating not being able to see alot of the games.
    go sox.

    I agree Redsox I think they really didn't know how these games were going to turn out and there was alot of skeptism with alot of American media and fans. Some still don't like the idea of it.

    Does anyone know if the USA/Korea game tomorrow is going to be on ESPN2? The announcer during the USA/SA game said it was but the listings still say they are going to show Tennis.

      Clemens starts, possibly one of the last starts of his career, picthes brillantly, but no one gets to see it because they show the taped game at 3:00 AM. Well at these this makes sense. But The games I have been able to see I have enjoyed every second of.

        I agree Clemens start was awesome but the SA team was clearly not up to the task against any kind of major league pitching. It was a great start but I wouldn't called 'brilliant' due to the level of the other team.

          ESPN had a timing issue. They had a preexisting contract to show the NCAA basketball tournaments live. They probably would have shown the WBC live if they could have(and did show some games live) but couldn't break their contracts with the conferances. The result was the WBC games being shown overnight or on ESPN Desportes this round. The next round they shouldn't have a problem, they revert back to their normal empty schedules.

              Well I call every Clemens start brilliant if I get the honor of watching him work whether it's against SA, All-star team or little league I don't really mind.

                I have to admit that I was one of those that said oh well about the WBC, but now that i've watched some of the games, I like it, it is more exciting than what I thought.
