OK, then set up a poll and ask people to name the last five WS winners and each of the WBC Champions and see what happens. Personally, I don't think I've watched one WBC game, maybe part of one and YAWN, but I watch hundreds of MLB games every year. And I have watched most World Series over the last 40 years because I and millions others care who wins. The WBC, probably the players playing care, that's fair, but the multitudes? Entertainment with some element of national pride.
