Just took some action on the Netherlands and the over 7.5. True the only guy I can name on the team is Andruw Jones I believe. Also true, Taipei scares me a little because they were dominant in the Nintendo game Little League Baseball. However I now have a rooting interest in the game and reason to stay up and watch it. I may make a sizable meal.

The Netherlands have at least two active MLBers: Andrelton Simmons from the Braves, who is a legit starter, and Roger Bernadina, the 4th outfielder from the Nationals.

Yes, they beat Mexico in pool play in 2009.

The only countries to have participated in the WBC and not win are South Africa, Panama, and now Brazil.

I actually flipped through two games the past few days; just enough to see a hitter and I immediately noticed one thing....the 'crowds' were non-existent.

I mean it looked like there were maybe a few thousand fans in the stands in Japan and in Taipei.

Yeah, not great turnouts in Japan for teams not named Japan. Strange. I'd expect Japan-Cuba to be packed, though.

EDIT:

And a bit of an upset--Taiwan bests Korea to move on to the second round.

Teixeira sprained his right wrist, in the batting cage.

I hope he does too, for a guy on the backside of his career who already has a ring I would think representing your country would be be pretty cool.
