Who would the U.S. rather play should they win, Puerto Rico or the Netherlands?

Edit: Two huge baserunning mistakes by the Netherlands already...

I remember when Balentien was supposed to be a star for the Mariners.

That should've been a grand slam if not for Simmons and Profar idiocy.

He's a star in Japan. Perfect example of the massive gap between MLB and NPB.

Sad to see a great game diminished by childish extra innings rules

It seems super climactic and dramatic, but bases loaded was handed to you. It's just awful.

I didn't know the Netherlands' starting center fielder was Ben Revere

So this is what it would feel like to see a playoff series decided by shootout or 3v3 OT... empty and wanting a lot more.
