Does anybody know if the Taiwanese aren't putting their best foot forward in terms of WBC players similar to the USA, or their league is just very slugger heavy, or something? It seemed like every pitcher they put out there was listed as having a 5+ ERA in the Taiwan baseball league.

Didn't Cuba just play a game against Japan? Feels like this isn't enough time to be fair, idk.

There is apparently some kind of labor dispute that stopped Taiwan from sending their best players. I haven't seen details about it though.

Ah, okay. Thanks.

it's ridiculous that this team is playing in the asia bracket, imagine if they played in miami

Give it time on the pace they're at team Israel will be in LA for the final rounds before you know it.

That was a good throw/relay but :lol: Bautista's got no wheels.

Am I missing something or is it not possible to watch WBC games on the mobile app? They aren't showing up in the list of feeds but I can watch them on my laptop just fine :confused:

"He [Archer] isn't messing around setting guys up, he's thrown first pitch strikes to 8 of the last 10 guys."

I know this post is going to be a little controversial, but...

I feel like if the Marlins allowed people to jump up and down, wave flags, blow horns, and slam giant pickles(?) at regular season games instead of enforcing the same old boring White People's Manners that the other 29 stadiums do, their games might have better attendance.

It's the busiest I've seen their stadium in five years, but it's also a very different type of audience participation than just cheering a dinger and doing the wave.

How is this even remotely controversial? Old white people dictating the culture of the sport is one of the worst things in baseball.

hey shouldn't he be kicked out for reaching over the wall since that ball was going to bounce off it

Considering MLB apparently can't scrape together enough security to keep the players families safe, I doubt they have enough to eject annoying ball hawks.

I like how the pitcher started walking back towards the dugout, and even he couldn't believe it when that got called strike three :allears:

Pancakes posted:

Reading comments on the stories (I know, I know), I thought Yadi was supposedly just a crybaby who should have hired a private army to protect his family from his overinflated salary.

On the one I read they also interviewed Baez and he seemed more annoyed that his manager told him to go back to the dugout instead of letting him jump into the brawl Malice at the Palace style to protect his family.

Someone who isn't a complete Yadi fanboy: How much of this is lovely umping and how much of it is Yadi stealing strikes?

As somebody who has to watch Yadi steal strikes against the Cubs 19 times a year, this is a really terrible strike zone.
