I know how riveting this Yankee team is, and just how exciting this spring training has been, but for today, the Yankees need to take a back seat. My native Puerto Rico is taking on the Dominican Republic tonight for the World Baseball Classic championship. It's an interesting match up in that the Dominican Republic looks like an All-Star team, with major league depth, while team Puerto Rico has a handful of regular MLB players followed by a slew of minor league, Japanese league, and even Korean league veterans. However, these tournaments are rarely decided by the talent alone. It's why the Netherlands were in the semi-finals while the USA was bounced out in the second round. These teams will play with a lot of heart, and it's some of the most exciting baseball you'll get to watch. So if you enjoy baseball, you'll want to watch tonight's game.
Back in Yankee world, the fierce competition for bench spots is still ongoing. Enjoy!
