Goodbye in Spanish, Japanese, and Korean.
The World is laughing at USA baseball now. The USA is out of the World Baseball Classic. It's shocking because we're suppose to have this powerful lineup and all-star caliber pitching. The way the USA has performed this tournament, it's about as surprising as a Barry Bonds steriod injection. All they had to do was to beat winless Mexico and they'd go to the semifinals. Instead the USA mustered three hits and one run with a lineup that's suppose to scare people. It scared no one.
I don't know what it is. We find professional players who get paid way too much to play for us. They're suppose to be the best. It's like these teams the USA puts together for basketball, baseball, and hockey look like that really fine girl you've been staring at. Finally when you get that coveted date and you start talking to her, you realize your dog Rocky is better to talk to. At least he doesn't say anything stupid and he'll listen.
The teams that are left, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Korea, and Japan, all deserve to be there. Japan has the last laugh now for getting shafted on that horrible call. Now they're playing in the semi-finals while the USA now has more time to focus their March Madness pool.
Mexico can beat the USA in baseball. That's fine. This summer if the two countries collide in the World Cup, the USA have their revenge and it will be sweet.
