Japan clobbers China, 18-2, called after eight innings due to some dimwit "mercy rule."

Sorry, baseball is NINE innings.  In any country.  Mercy rules are for kids, not grown-ups.

Japan won another mercy rule game: http://tinyurl.com/ggct7

Now Japan and Korea get to go to war on the diamond.  Is THIS game going to be on TV?  I should check the wbc site -- I'd LOVE to see how Ichiro does against the Korean pitchers.

Haha, even Matsuzaka is talkin' trash: http://tinyurl.com/z6ufb

Yeah, please.  I see that ESPN2 is airing the game at 4:00 AM EST, which is 11:00 PM Hawaii time.  Which will be kinda past my bedtime.

MLB.com has the China-Taiwan game on Gameday right now...

China vs. Taiwan: first inning
« Reply #7 on: March 05, 2006, 03:29:40 AM »
OK first inning for China.  They get a man on first and sacrifice him to second.  In the FIRST INNING!   And then the runner on second is caught trying to steal third!

Sorry, but I think I would go batty watching this.  Smallball don't win games in the first inning unless you got Johan Santana pitching for you.  Or Sandy Koufax.

or if you are absolutely outclassed like china is.

i'm watching the china-taiwan game now.  if we can get past the first round, at least i take solace in the fact that we can beat china :w00t:

Well in the end, Taiwan didn't need small ball: http://www.worldbaseballclassic.com/2006/news/article.jsp?ymd=20060305&content_id=1334894&vkey=wbc_news&fext=.jsp&sid=wbc

Good for both teams...  I wonder if they were discouraged by the small crowds in the Tokyo Dome, which numbered around 3,000 or so?

Japan-Korea showdown begins in less than an hour.  I guess I'll try catch as many pitches as possible...

I wonder whose loss in the WBC is more painful, Japan's or USA's?

USA's is more embarrassing but Japan's might sting even more.

i just heard on radio that if canada, usa and mexico all end up 2-1 the tiebreaker used will be least earned runs given up.

how fucking stupid is that?  for the canada - mexico game canada should just make 3 errors every inning and lose 10-0 and end the game on the mercy rule.  then they will advance instead of the mexicans.  LAME.

Japan is leading USA 3-1 going to the bottom of the 6th.  

If they actually hold on to win, then...  maybe the sting from the loss to Korea will go away.

Maybe.

Wow, Japan vs. USA

In the 9th inning, 3-3, crazy game~

Japan bases loaded, 2 outs!

missed opportunity for Japan, USA's turn to bat, now it is bases loaded with 2 outs for the USA... :shock:

A Rod helped the USA win the game

Ouch.  Japan was jobbed on that appeal play at third.  

ESPN2 is showing Puerto Rico vs. the Dominican Republic.  All-star lineups both but what the hell is Soriano doing leading off for the DR?  Sounds like a spirited crowd there tonight...

Ouch Japan, I agreed with the umpire's first call though. I think he touched the base before he ran..

Maaannn...how does this round go? I'm lost. Don't even know if it's shown on TV anymore. I think I saw like 1/3 of an inning of the Mexico-South Africa and Lee Freakin Smith was coaching?  :lol:

I did hear about that Japan being screwed...and US lost to Korea? WTF. I agree. They should have this like after the World Series. Way too close to spring training. Andruw Jones tripped on the steps of a Puerto Rican dugout. who knows how long he'll be out now.
