WBC, baby! Canada is thus far embarrassing America 5-0 in the top of the fourth. Guiel's playing a goog game so far, with a walk and a triple.

Willis pitched not that bad of a game, its just nobody could back him up in the field. We can't play defense for the life of us today.

I'd really like for USA to win this thing, but the Royals fan in me wants to see Guiel and Stairs succeed.

Maybe Guiel tearing up the USA team will get him some much deserved playing time here in KC.



but probably not.

They were impressive yesterday. To me the two X-factors are Cuba and Japan. I'm not quite sure how they will stack up against these superstar MLB teams...

Guiel struck out looking. Still, the damage was done that inning with two more runs.

Real impressive. I thought Venezuela's pitching would have kept those bats in check somewhat.
Then they put up double digits on Johan Santana and crew. They're the heavy favorites now, with two low scoring efforts from USA.

This is the only reason I even care about the WBC. If Guiel tears it up here, the Royals are either forced to give him playing time or will hopefully be ridiculed for not giving him playing time.

I swear we are a different team with Guiel in the lineup.

Preferably hitting 1st or 2nd. I can live with DeJesus at leadoff, but geesh, give me Guiel batting #2 over Mark Grudz... any day.

It's Guiel vs Ambres for the 4th outfield spot. WHo knows at this point who it will be. Guiel's probably the safer pick.

In unrelated news, the crawl at the bottom of the screen said the Eagles signed Shawn Barber to a one year deal.

And Canada upsets the United States, with a score of 8-6.

What a letdown.

That was freaking embarrassing. They used a single-A pitcher in the 8th and a guy who started at AA last year in the 9th, and closed out a lineup of all-stars.

These quotes are funny, or troubling, considering the fact that USA manager Buck Martinez is an Orioles broadcaster:

When Team USA center fielder Vernon Wells was asked what he knew about Canada starter Adam Loewen hours before yesterday's game, you might as well have asked him the square root of 892.

"He's tall," Wells said. "He throws a baseball. And he's Canadian."

"What organization is he with?" Jeter asked afterward, betraying his complete ignorance of Adam Loewen to that point. Told Loewen belongs to the Orioles, Jeter's eyes widened. "I'm sure," Jeter said, "I'll be seeing a lot of him."
