What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?

Anything SHIMA is not included in my real name. What are you trying say?
What we talk here is about baseball things in connection with Rangers or WBC as long as this topic posted by Terry C is concerned, isn't it?
If you like playing or watching baseballs, just give your glance at any WBC game being held now. Without the USA, this is nothing but a child's play. You shoud be well aware of the fact and responsibility.
Mr. Shima: Calm down
Is anyone watching the U.S v Puerto Rico game? Great game so far.
The WBC may not be important to us in the U.S. Just ask your co-workers how many of them are watching the WBC. 99% of them won't even know what the WBC is. But for these countries like Japan and the Dominican Republic? National Prestige IS at stake. We pride ourselves on having the best athletes in the world in our country, but the baseball fans in just about every other country participating in the WBC are more passionate than the fans in this country. The WBC may not be important to us, but to every other country the WBC does matter. And if you call yourself a baseball fan, you should be watching.
Baseball was born in the United States, so it's a shame US players don't get more involved. We could win every time if the like of Verlander, Weaver, Strasburg, Hamilton, Uptons, Fielder or anyone along those lines played. You see the best players for other countries lining up to the building next door to play and represent their country, but not the US. It's a shame really. I can't take it it seriously though because no United States Major Leagers do. It'll always be another countries time to shine which is good for the sport I guess. -__-
No and No..............ask the Mets how they like the WBC.....David Wright, star player now out with rib injury due to playing in WBC.........may or may not have happened in regular spring training camp.........but it did happen playing in WBC!
Dan W, thank you. Please re-read as needed, no prescription required.
this may seem like a trivial comment, but is anyone else put off by that horrid bike horn sound going off all game long when PR or DR is playing? I had to watch the game on mute. For me, It's kind of like when you think about blinking your eyes and then the only thing you can think about is blinking your eyes....

I was at the PR/DR pool final game yesterday and wow, it was special. The passion and joy do the fans was unlike anything I've ever seen. Once the game was over the concourses jammed up with impromptu dance parties. Unforgettable.
The WBC from a U.S. perspective could be more interesting if the U.S. had a qualifying rounds of teams like AN-ALL TEXAN TEAM, All-Californian, All-Floridan, etc. In comparison to Cuba, DR, PR would be of greater interest and balanced relative to size and population basis, and above all of more localized.interest. The enjoyment of creating an ALL TEXAN team would be entertaining in its own right and to see that team play against the DR, priceless.
Dominican Republic, congraturations on your great, rather perfect victory!
