If you have not been watching the World Baseball Classic games this far you have missed some great stories!
The Israel team, ranked 45th in the world before the tourney, is 3-0. They are for real; they beat an always strong Netherlands team for the third victory. Netherlands finished fourth out of 30 teams 4 years ago.
The US team plays powerhouse Dominican Republic tonight at 6pm (game will be on the MLB channel). The DR was undefeated 4 years ago, and has not lost this time around. If they played the Chicago Cubs right now the outcome would be a toss-up. Their starting nine all played in last years MLB all-star game. Tonight’s game will be very interesting.
