WBC Open Thread

"Miss me?" - Christian Petersen

For your Sunday evening...

Team USA and Team Canada are playing for survival in the 2013 WBC. The U.S. team is bizarre, as slugger Giancarlo Stanton was benched in favor of over-the-hill Shane Victorino.

Former Yankees manager Joe Torre's American team blew a great chance to score in the top of the second, when David Wright doubled and Ben Zobrist reached on an error. With no one out, Orioles All-Star Adam Jones bunted. Wat. No runs came from the inning, as Eric Hosmer grounded into a force at the plate and Victorino grounded out. Canada took a 2-0 lead on a two-run Michael Saunders homer off Derek Holland (Saunders is hitting .778 so far. SSS of course, but wow.) Holland worked around back-to-back singles and a Victorino error in left (Oh) to get out of the inning, but the U.S. is still trailing 2-0 entering the fourth.

If you don't want to talk about the WBC, don't feel obligated to--you can discuss whatever.
