    Rumblings have now started coming from the American camp that they didn't take the inaugural World Baseball Classic seriously anyhow.

    Maybe they had mandatory drug tests there or something

    Eh? Many of the best players on other teams play play MLB.

    I don't know about the American team but Americans in general didn't take it seriously. That's why many of our best turned down going (similar to our Olympic basketball team).

    America played against many fellow MLB players in the WBC so I'm not surprised they lost. The fact is America always cares about American "leagues" more than world competition 'cause there's no real money in it. Hurt yourself in some world competition that pays nothing and then career at home goes to shit.

    I do think that any American player that went over and played needs to STFU, however. You step on the field, you play your best and don't give fucking excuses about it.

    It reminds me of Olympic skier, Bode Miller. After HE LOST, he said he didn't care about medals.

    Not a very good rod, btw mank

    Well, you're a nice chap and normally I would feel some empathy.

    However, in this case - with you not letting anyone play Baseball properly for such a long time ... the irony, and glagworthyness, of the situation supercedes any empathy.

    Sorry

    I like your disclaimer, however, it's not a rod. I've been following the competition (on the BBC website) because it interested me that the 'World Series' jokes would have to stop. I find it totally ironic that Team USA have been humbled by part-timers and Minor league players.

    What you're saying there is that money > national glory.

    You'll find many, if not all, soccer fans disagreeing with you. In the World Cup, the players get paid a pittance c.f. what they get from their clubs but the attention focused on the World Cup will dwarf anything domestically.

    I find it completely strange that you believe the internal competitions are more important than a global one because of money.

    Kinda sad, too.

    Test themselves nationally in global competition.

    It was a joke, more than anything.
