WBC Finale

With nothing else on after the Bulls game last night I turned on the WBC coverage on ESPN. This was my first viewing experience all year and I have to say I was entertained. I caught the game in the 8th inning and watched a great finish that saw Japan beat out South Korea 5-3. I really enjoyed watching the small ball employed by both teams.

However, I still think this event would be better served being played in the Fall after the World Series. You are always going to have people who won't compete in an invitational exhibition but there would certainly be less team pressure on players given the longer window for injury recovery.

That said, I'm ready for the real thing. April 5th can't get her soon enough.
