WBC is Heating Up—And the 2006 Yankees Are on Fire
Tuesday, March 07, 2006
The first World Baseball Classic has only been underway for one week, and we’ve already bid farewell to two teams (China and Chinese Taipei…my apologies to anyone who bet on them…). Both Mexico and Korea have impressed me, with Korea beating the favored Japan team and Mexico giving up just two runs to the U.S. earlier today, and the Dominican and Venezuela teams each have enough talent to intimidate a lineup of resurrected Hall of Fame-ers. The games have been very exciting to watch; no matter which team you watch you’ll see major league superstars playing with intense passion (except for United States players, no national pride there, thanks).

The real excitement, though, comes from watching the performances of the participating 2006 Yankees. Today was the first USA game, and thus the first WBC appearances by Damon, Jeter, and A-Rod. The Yankees’ likely 1-2-3 hitters did not disappoint—all three went 1-3, and Damon’s hit was a triple. Down in Florida, Bernie Williams served as DH for Puerto Rico during their first game against Panama, and lest you think Bernie is washed-up, allow me to inform you that he was 2-3 today—including a double!

There are no fewer than five games scheduled for tomorrow, including the USA-Canada match-up at 4:00pm EST. The Marlins’ Dontrelle Willis will be facing Adam Loewen, a 21-year-old left-hander.
