      Wow come out I'm sorry I watched this highlights nobody even knows the World Baseball Classic is but I actually might watch a little bit of it the score was 13 to 2 this is way better than Major League Baseball I stand corrected I'm actually interested

      Shame none of the elite American starters wanted to show up. They're running out starters with a 4 ERA in 2022.
      Lots of good relievers though.

    The WBC skyrocketed from being a good tournament to attracting the best players in the world. I think Trout and Ohtani participating will give the WBC long-term legitimacy and it will will become a premier/must-see event. Makes me love baseball even more!

    • Bill Hicks

      I don't think you'll ever get the biggest of American pitchers because of the money that's sunk into them and the care with which teams get them ready for the season, but you could definitely get the best hitters and fielders and a good set of #2 pitchers.

    • RJ & Cupid 🇨🇦
      RJ & Cupid 🇨🇦 2 місяці тому +29

      @Bill Hicks I see your point. I hope that changes though. If their innings are managed it could be a much more realistic preparation than spring training ever could be. Maybe perceptions will change. A pitcher can get injured at any point and sometimes being too careful makes injuries more likely. For instance, back in the day the expectation was that pitchers would try to pitch complete games every time they took the mound.

    • S G
      S G 2 місяці тому +10

      @Bill Hicks No chance aces will turn up. DeGrom has enough problems as it is lol Ohtani would play though and he would only choose an MLB team that would allow him to play for his country. The Japanese pitchers are amazing. I don't know if you have seen their games but they should all be in MLB. Most of them throw mid to upper 90s with great control and nasty breaking balls. I think they'll beat Mexico, which will make the Championship game even better since Ohtani will pitch.

    • Bill Hicks
      Bill Hicks 2 місяці тому +6

      @S G i agree. even Ohtani is now only coming out of the pen. But yeah, they definitely have a more old school approach over there. MLB coddles some of these pitchers way too much and that can lead to injuries as easily as overuse.

    A WBC run that the USA won’t forget! This WBC has been so electric overall and has been amazing to watch. Trea Turner is putting on a clinic and adding to his future HOF career for sure. Also cool to see Cedric Mullins homer too. Phenomenal energy 💪🏼

  • Kevin Lin

    Goldschmidt’s home run set the tone for the game with the lead and the following homers were overwhelming, demonstrating once again how mighty Team USA can be and how desperate they are for another title. The finals will be insane!

    • Johnathan Patrick
      Johnathan Patrick 2 місяці тому +6

      I disagree with Goldschmidt's 2 run homer setting the tone. I think that was Wainwright limiting the damage to one run when the first 4 Cubans reached base.

    • Kevin Lin
      Kevin Lin 2 місяці тому +5

      @Johnathan Patrick Limiting the damage to the minimum is one thing, but to win is another. You gotta score to win the game. The home run was a twist and helped Team USA take the lead, keeping the momentum they needed for more runs, leading to a big win. That’s something.

    • Johnathan Patrick
      Johnathan Patrick 2 місяці тому +2

      @Kevin Lin Yeah, true, but go back to Cuba's win against Australia. That was a little more like a pitcher's duel. I don't think you'd get that many people believing this Cuban team could outhit or even outpitch this USA team. 1-0 wasn't gonna hold.

    • Kevin Lin
      Kevin Lin 2 місяці тому

      @Johnathan Patrick If the premise is that this Cuban team couldn’t outperform Team USA either offensively or defensively, then even if the damage became reality, it didn’t matter that much cuz Team USA was gonna outsocre Cuba sooner or later, right? I focus more on what was the threshold of the breakthrough. And the home run was like “Here we go. Let’s win this game!!”

    • Johnathan Patrick
      Johnathan Patrick 2 місяці тому

      @Kevin Lin Well, I'll say this; whether it's Japan or Mexico for the championship, the US better bring their best pitching. The hitting I'm not worried about, though both teams do have some nice arms to combat our hitters. It's some of our pitching that worries me. What do you think??

  • Reno Leeora
    Reno Leeora 2 місяці тому +242

    Team USA is a complete team. Trea came in clutch again. Went yard TWICE! He's really locked in. Whether it's Japan or some redemption against Mexico, the championship game will be must watch TV. Let's go defend our title!!! 🇺🇲💪🏽💪🏽

      What kept this game from going sideways early was Wainwright's composure. He didn't panic. As a veteran who's been in those situations before, he showed why he's one of the best pitchers in this league. If our bullpen can deliver and our bats stay hot, USA will win it all

    Props to Wainwright. The defense loaded up the bases and he walked in a run, but he kept his cool and got 3 outs with the bases loaded.

    I watched a lot of videos in the U.S., but the pitcher who got most of the attention was Sasaki. If Japan wins against Mexico, Yamamoto would be the starting pitcher against the US, but Yamamoto is far more highly regarded domestically. This looks like a great opportunity for Yoshinobu Yamamoto to make his name known to MLB fans.

      No. Kuriyama announced Sasaki pitch against Mexico as a starter and maybe Yamamoto will be the second. At final game Darvish will start and Shohei commented yesterday he's probable to pitch not as starter but the second/reliever. Well Samurai Japan must beat Mexico first.

    • 思い立ったが吉日

      Yamamoto is only 5-10. That is extremely short for a starting pitcher. Only Cueto (5-10), Lincecum (5-11) are equally as short as him, as a all-star level starting pitcher. If he succeeds, he would be the shortest in the game.
      That means, his margin for error is very slim, thus Yamamoto's chances of dominating in MLB is very very small.
      Sasaki would be a much much better MLB prospect.

    As a MLB and Cardinals fan from Taiwan for years, I always know the high level of MLB and I know that it is mission impossible for team Cuba win this game. However I still get shocked that team Cuba was dominated by team USA, especially after I went to the stadium and watched their game in pool A and know they are a good team. Top MLB players are Better than Great ! Really enjoy WBC and can't wait for 2023 MLB season👍.

    I am Mexican, but I am quite realistic about things; He had faith that Mexico could beat Puerto Rico. But with Japan it is something else, I have no faith that Mexico can beat Japan. What I do have is the vibe and I wish Mexico the best of success in performing the miracle. Congratulations to the USA for the pass to the final..

      As a Japanese, I believe average quality of Japanese players is better, but only a few of them have played in MLB…
      No one can stop Mexican batters and no Japanese left handed batters can hit from Sandoval when Mexican players and fans are on a roll.
      Anyway, I’m sure it’ll be a wonderful game!!

    I am enjoying these games. I have always liked the MLB all-star game the best over that of other sports, and these are like all-star games on a global level. I have read the Cardinals have 17 players from their organization participting in this tournamnt with most in the major or minor leagues represeninting other countries. Yadier Molina even coached the Puerto Rico team. I am looking forward to the Final versus Japan or Mexico. Cards fan

    This classic compared to the previous ones, has by far been the most interesting. I think except for China every team has been competitive. I loved watching the Czechs get an improbably win and they were mostly competitive. The Aussies did well, so did Italy, overall a very good tournament. Disappointing for the D.R. who were heavily favored, Korea I'm sure expected better. Best WBC to date.
