    2013 World Baseball Classic Thread

    Another World Baseball Classic tournament is upon us in March 2013.

    Will Japan go for a three-peat? Will Japan and South Korea be in the finals again? Will the United States march to the final? Will Cuba and Dominican Republic go deeper in the tournament?

    Who will be the mega sleeper like the Netherlands in 2009?

    Despite the topic, I feel as though this thread would be better suited for the "other sports" forum.

    I'm sure this thread will end up looking a lot like the ones where BB55 was running one-man game threads for World Cup soccer.

    I see that some teams already have rosters but is that for games going forward as well? Or were those for the teams that have been playing to qualify?

    I'm pretty excited about this!

    I know, a damn shame. Would have been nice to have Jeter as the team USA captain

    I'm ecstatic to see my adopted country (Brasil) qualify for the WBC). It sounds like it was quite a match against top-seeded Panama. Linky.

    With only one MLB player (Yan Gomes), I can't really hope for them to go through in a Group with PR, DR and Venezuela, but I look forward to seeing them try. I hope the fans turn out.

    IIRC, the Dutch team beat the Dominican Republic in the last WBC. Just goes to show that anything is possible in single game.
