Yeah. If only he asked to pitch instead of play short. Maybe he could have came in after Hill and keep us in from the beginning.

The whole WBC thing is stupid anyway. I can't see why anyone is wasting time on it. But then again, I never understand people's fondness for these pointless tournaments with made-up teams.

Is Ryan Dempster still cheering from his couch?

There's no point to us showing up at these things if none of our SPs make it.

Shawn Hill? Jesus.

Seems worse now than in older interviews I've seen. Like before he was quirky and unhinged as if he was permanently baked out of his mind. Now it's more along the lines of tinfoil hats and thinking the government is spiking fast food with nicotine to make people lethartic and apathetic.

Yes

If you didn't think he had gone off the deep end before ...

yeah, that was exactly what I was thinking. I knew he was out there to start with (with a name like Spaceman, what else could you expect?), but wow. That was something else.

What exactly makes a team made up? MLB players switch teams, and they aren't exactly born onto the team. Aren't all teams made up? It's just that this tournament you cheer for your country. There's actually probably more to cheer for here (your country) than the MLB (a brand).

Went to the game today, unfortunately no one really played was hoping to see Bautista at least. Ah well

Gose had a nice swing going and Johnson was beast. Typically clocking his fastball at 93-95 and looked great. Got ahead early and often.

Arencibia is catching tonight, isn't he? Broadcast spent their time talking about Joe Mauer and made it sound like he'd be the catcher.

If he can log 200 IP at a high level I see no reason he can't.
