Interesting farcical note about the World Baseball classic, from the Baltimore Sun:
"When umpire Bob Davidson mistakenly took a home run away from Mexico's Mario Valenzuela during last night's second-round game between the U.S. and Mexico, he briefly helped the Mexican team stave off elimination because Mexico's only hope for advancing to the final round was to defeat the U.S., 3-0, in 13 innings. The tiebreaker system actually created a scenario in which a team was better off trying not to score."
They seriously need to revamp this tiebreaker system. My head was spinning when ESPN kept trying to explain how the US advanced if Japan defeated Korea 8-0 in nine innings.
