Re: Why the WBC is important
I personally have gotten into the WBC this year much more than I thought I would have. The US-Canada game yesterday was great fun, and I even watched some of the Cuba-Netherlands game before work this morning. The problem, like others have said, is the timing. Players, especially pitchers, aren't quite ready, and fans are invested in other sports like the NBA season and March Madness. As a true baseball fan, I care more about this than either of those two, but I can understand why this isn't getting as much attention in the media. I don't really see when else you can have it, though.
