USA Baseball: Players Who Must Step Up for Team to Advance

After a disappointing 5-2 loss to Mexico (box score via MLB.com) in its World Baseball Classic opener on Friday night, Team USA needs Brandon Phillips and Giancarlo Stanton to step up in order for the team to advance.

The United States is Simply the Greatest Sports Country in the World

Now, at my favorite time in the sports calendar, I often reflect upon the amazing nature of sports. It is something that can be totally unifying, and at the same time, completely divisive.

Some people quite literally live and die on the success of their teams.

It is something that transcends all of the normal boundaries that are set for us in life. A young man can grow up on the streets, but die a hero to his country because he excelled at a sport.

Fantasy Baseball Tonight 5/25: Happy Memorial Day!

While many of us take this day as an extra day off of work, and a reason for a BBQand a great reason for a get together with friends and/or family, let’s not forget what today is really about. 

Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice while serving their country.  The men and women who have given their life in the name of freedom and patriotism. 

Dear America: The "World" Series Should No Longer Hold That Title

Dear America,

The World Series should no longer hold that title. For the title "World Series" implies the whole world.

So why are the World Series Champs called the World Champions?

Because MLB teams are the best, right?

Wrong.

The days of American baseball dominance have long been over and it has taken until now to prove it.

By defeating Korea for their second straight World Baseball Classic championship, Japan has a legitimate claim to call themselves the World's best baseball nation.

Teixeira Already Becoming a Leader by Rejecting WBC

The World Baseball Classic has taken many players around the major league away from their teams this spring and in some cases it has been viewed as a very negative thing. For Mark Teixeira that was not going to be an issue during his first spring training with the Yankees.

Puerto Rico Just Like the New York Mets? A Proud Island Loses to Team USA

Team Puerto Rico reminded me of the 2008 Mets in the way they lost to Team USA.

Team Puerto Rico was leading Team USA 5-3 going into the bottom of the ninth inning. Pedro Feliciano reminded me of last year, and to most Puerto Rico fans, it wasn't good. He did not have good command and put himself in a hole.

The Puerto Rican team had a chance to get out of it with a double play, but Carlos Delgado was pulled off the bag. It was all downhill from there.
