2006 World Baseball Classic
I'm not sure what to think about the 2006 World Baseball Classic. At first I thought it was a pretty cool idea, but now that it's here and Canada plays South Africa tonight at 21:00 EST, I've downgraded my vibe on the whole deal to "kinda neat".
I love baseball and I love the idea of an International tournament that matters, but I don't get the feeling this is it. A number of big names aren't participating and with Spring Training underway most thoughts are with MLB. Having said all that, I am interested in how Canada fares against the United States and I would love to see Ernie Whitt coach us to an upset win. Here are some 2006 World Baseball Classic links of interest:
- Canada's Roster
- World Baseball Classic Official Site
- Sportsnet World Baseball Classic Standings
- ESPN World Baseball Classic Page
Go Canada Go!
