    You know you want it, bitches!

    WBC starts tonight with Australia-Taiwan at 11:30 ET on MLB Network. Chien-Ming Wang on the hill for Taiwan.

  2. Chinese Taipei, unless you want to start a war. Or an international hissy fit.

    Well, since I read it 50 posts at a time? Um...low.

    The four teams in the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) are the Brother Elephants, the Lamigo Monkeys, the EDA Rhinos and the Uni-President 7-Eleven Lions. Even with only 120 games in the schedule, you have to get really sick of seeing the same teams over and over.

    Taiwan has used Chien-Ming Weng and Hong-Chih Kuo in the opener. Australia's using pitchers from Detroit's minor-league system.

    And, surprisingly, Taiwan won 4-1. Netherlands beat Korea 5-0 in the other game in Taiwan.

    Brazil put a scare into Japan, leading 3-2 before Japan pushed three across in the eighth to win 5-3.

    It'll blow up if someone gets hurt.

    If Jetes was playing we'd already be at four pages.

    No, we'd have threads about every one of his at-bats ...

    Holy Crap! I didn't even know this was an option until know.

    Just changed my settings. Sweet!

    I streamlined a while ago...got rid of everyone's avatars and took the max amount of posts possible.

    Barry Larkin is managing Brazil so even if Jetes was playing he wouldn't be the greatest shortstop in the tournament.
