    It's history. In 20 years this thing will be HUGE. Gotta say you saw the first one.

    there will be a lot of passion between the two teams. i dont need major leaguers to watch baseball. Go watch a college game, it is good stuff, even with mediocre teams with no future pro's.

    (Fast forward to 25 years from now, while watching the 6th WBC.)

    Son: Hey dad, I bet it was awesome to watch the first ever World Baseball Classic championship.

    Me: I didn't get to watch it, ESPN decided to show a friggin' NIT game.

    I love it - just showing how lowly ESPN is treating this by letting the ending of a NIT game overlap the start

    Re: Watching WBC Tonite?

    Per MLB.com's gameday

    Japan is the visiting team tonight.

    Leadoff batter grounded out
    Japan's Two hole hitter singled to SS.
    Ichiro then walked
    The 4 hitter Matsunaka then singled to load the bases.
    The something happened to the Cuban Starter Odelin, because he was replaced with Romero after 7 pitches.

    So with the bases loaded - the Cuban out of the pen, Romero, then beaned Tamura, allowing Nishioka to score, but K'd the next batter.

    Bases Loaded, two outs, 1-0 Japan in the top of the First

    Scratch that - Romero was the Cuban starter - he lasted 23 pitches before being pulled.

    Odelin was the Cuban relief pitcher and is currently on the mound

    He now has walked the Japanese 1st baseman on 8 pitches, walking in another run

    Imae the 3rd baseman is now up, bases still loaded, 2-0 Japan with 2 outs

    Gonzales stops the bleeding.

    Now Cuba up to bat, down 4-0 in the bottom of the 1st

    And wouldn't you know it - ESPN decides to show the game.

    Those 12 guys watching the NIT must be pretty upset.

    Paret, the Cuban leadoff hitter, just hit a hanging curve into the seats.
