I went to a game last WBC in Orlando, FLD @ the Braves AAA stadium. It was an opening round game, Dominican Rep. vs Australia. I think the score was 14-3 DR, but for a lop-sided score it was quite the game.
For one side it was an all-star lineup, which is something I don't get to see live everyday. The other reason was the atmosphere was like nothing I have ever experienced. Congo lines, drum banging, dancing and chanting in the aisles, it had some island feel to it for sure.
To me I like the idea. It is a new concept, but it is worth a look for sure. I hope more players and countries take it with more pride and more fans give it a chance.

The Japanese teams are more domestic in nature and losing some MLB stars wouldn't hurt as much. Quite the opposite, it would give national talent and opportunity to shine.

Canada has had good national teams in the past couple of years. Filling it with MLB players due to their "profile" isn't going to help.
