Shane Victorino ,Hosmer, Rollins, and Zobrist don't cut it.But the classic is doing what it was intended to do, grow the game in popularity in non-traditional and traditional markets.
I wouldn't say shoo-in. The DR could also bring a powerhouse team. Plus, other countries play their hearts out for this. Heart lifts a team to the next level.

Twice as many viewers? Are you comparing game vs game or game vs series? Game vs series is apples vs oranges. If it's CL Final vs Stanley Cup clincher, then I highly doubt it's twice as many viewers, or even more viewers at all. Please provide a link to back up your claim.
