Congrats Japan, at 8-6 I was hoping for a little chance but forget it, we Dutchies can't beat you. :P

5 ( +5 / -0 )

This team could be many MLB clubs.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

It was a great game.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Highly doubtful, at best the current Japanese team might be on par with an American MLB AAA team or maybe AAA plus @ meaning that they aren't "that" good.

THey have had home field advantage which is MAJOR for a tourney like this. Let's see what happens when they get to play as visitors.

San renpa wo mezashite, Ganbarre Nippon !

Japanese players start winter training very early. It's not surprising that they can perform well in a March tournament. Player fitness is good so defence is solid and they have a very good 'small ball' game. It wouldn't surprise me if they three-peat.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Yubaru, Japan just beat the defending World Series champs, the Giants. The lineup included players who were playing in the wbc, such as Sandoval and Scutaro. Triple A? I think not.

1 ( +2 / -1 )
