The great debate has been settled, Puerto Rico is better than Panama. Oh yeah, and the Netherlands far surpasses the Dominican Republic. The WBC is underway and we have already had some exciting baseball. The Netherlands upset the Dominican Republic in a close game in which Robbie Cano went 1-5. That's a big improvement on most of his games last season.
Puerto Rico defeated Panama 7 runs to nothing. The Panamanian team was stunned, and most of the players left the stadium crying and wishing to return home. It was a sad display, but it was a good win for Puerto Rico.
