So MLBN shows the Taiwan pitcher's stats from the NPB and he has an 8.4something ERA. Then they call him the staff ace. :stonk:

You might say he's the life of the team.

Or his hopes for the team are חַי

EDIT: Haha, Lavarnway wearing 36! They should have made the whole team wear multiples.

Good news for Taiwan is that Team Israel's pitchers are not exactly a bunch of high-control guys.

There's no way they can stand up to real pitching, but getting out of the pool would be pretty cool.

Looks like I might have to wear my hat again tomorrow.

drat. Anyone have a link to these rules? Has there been any change to regular season blackout rules? Will the Jays still be able to be watched from Canada? If not I just wasted a bunch of money on mlbtv! I guess I could get a vpn again but they're cracking down on that apparently

I meant just for the WBC, I don't think the regular season stuff is any different.
