Re: Chipper Jones: Move WBC to November and change the tiebreaker rules
I agree with Chipper, this timing is horrible. But it's been a pleasant surprise. I've actually enjoyed it and I didn't think I would. Japan has really gotten screwed in this thing and if the US wins it all, that will be one of the biggest stories coming out of it.
I don't know how to work this in, but any single elimination in baseball is bogus. They have to find a way to make it at least 2 out of 3 if you want this to be about the best teams winning.
I'm hoping that the players having a good experience will lead to all the marquis players wanting to play in it. I didn't like the idea of the WBC at first, but now I think it could potentially be a great event. Although, they could just have the Asian countries, the Caribbean countries, and the US and cut it down to a couple of weeks.
