Re: In Defense of the WBC
Adrian Gonzalez, born in America, hits a two run home run to beat the USA.
Jameson Taillon, born in Florida, starts for Canada against the USA.
A-Rod played for the American side in 2006 but switched to the Dominican side in 2009.
I have a hard time getting behind the WBC when Americans are playing against Americans but playing for different teams. I understand that if you had more stringent guidelines would make it difficult fielding some teams, but I would rather it be a more true competition.
