  • Congratulations to Japan

    Any thoughts on the game?

    I only saw the highlights on BBC.

    I only caught the first 5 innings...but i have to say, the WBC was a huge success IMO. I was not onboard when the idea first came about but as the games played out, i was a watching with great enthusiasm. Say what you want about Bud Selig, but he hit a homerun with the WBC.

      Interesting that after Japan jumped to a 6-1 lead, their errors let the Cubans back in the game who then reciprocated with an error that lead to four Japanese runs in the 9th.

        As much as I wanted Cuba to win, Japan certainly makes a nice champion. Now if Theo could only parley his trades to get Ichiro into a Sox uniform.

              I'll tip my Yankee cap to the eventual WBC winners! Congrats go to the Land of the Rising Sun.
