Team USA defines why the World Baseball Classic is great

New, comments

Ladies and gentlemen, this is why the World Baseball Classic is so attractive.

The United States team barely edged Team Canada by a score of 6-5 today. The Red Sox's Jason Bay flied out with a full count and two outs to end the game with the game-tying run on second base. JJ Putz, who was sent in to save the game, gave up a run but was able to give the US a win.

You might hate the WBC, but this was a great game and I'm 100 percent confident we'll see more of this before the series is over.

Put aside the fact that MLB players might get hurt. That's a fact for anything. What if Dustin Pedroia walked down a sidewalk? Well, he might get hurt. We can't worry about these players. If they want to go out and play for their country, great. If they don't, that's fine, too.

I think we need to just sit back and not worry about anything. Let's just watch some really good baseball before the regular season starts. Today's game had the energy of a game in late October. Why argue against that?

Baseball is back, so let's not complain and just enjoy it.
