WBC Here, If you like it.

I got a few thoughts on it...

 

 

Though it actually does shock me a bit. Isreal won a "play in" tournament while Korea is considered a big powerhouse for the WBC. This was the March Madness equivalent of a 15 seed beating a 2 seed.

Israel had bases loaded four times.

I was watching a bit this morning.  Israel had the bases loaded in the second.

The Korean pitcher, a lefty, was trying to paint the outside corner against EVERY right handed hitter he saw and not having much luck.  Middle outside to low outside every pitch.  He walks in a run, the #9 hitter (righty) for Israel comes up and proceeds to swing at three straight balls off the outside edge of the plate.

Just brutal to watch.

I also watched Fuld make a heckuva catch in center.

Looks like Israel advances to the next round - surprising for sure.

I am not sure that the are absolutely through the pool yet. But it seems likely.

2-0 with a +9 run differential?  I think they are in.
