Shouldn't it? It could be such a cool thing, if MLB did it right. I'll watch it, for sure, but had to search my DVR to even understand the timing. And, had to be reminded via PTI that it even starts today.

The reason it's not bigger? Because the USA is shite at it.

Aint that the truth. I think Canada advanced further than the US last time - and they're spring training and regular season are both in August.

Apparently Canada and Mexico take it seriously.

Did anyone else see the large number of (illegal?) Mexicans at the USA vs Mexico game in Arizona last night? It almost felt like the game was in Mexico.

Also, the problem with the WBC is that it takes place right before the season starts, so many good MLB players don't want to play and risk getting injured.

Not when the national conscious revolves around college basketball.

And the MLB season is 9 months long. It's not like people have need to watch players do nothing for 2.5+ hours

What the hell is wrong with you Outfield??

Back on topic... The WBC is huge here and it's right before baseball season here as well and Japanese major leaguers don't play but the Japan league players do.

It's been great for my bar (I opened a sports bar as a side business), packed every day Japan has a game.

Yeah, really. :roll:

What does it matter, so long as they are paying for the tickets?
