The 2013 World Baseball Classic Thread

The every four year tournament, created due to the Olympics getting rid of baseball, is back again. Ballplayers from around the world and the majors get to suit up and represent their country.

Meanwhile, Spring Training turns into an extended audition for those not participating, especially for the non-invitees.

Who do you like in this and why

you gotta like Japan, they've won the past two WBC's, play fundamental baseball. At the end of these things there is always some Japanese pitcher everyone is drooling for

The timing of this tournament couldn't be more stupid.

No team wants their best players in this instead of spring training, and thus it's hard to take the WBC seriously

As much as I love baseball I have to agree.

I don't understand why it doesn't happen in November. Both the NPB (Japan) and MLB end in November.

All the hardcore baseball fans have migrated to there. Baseball Tonight has become an afterthought.
