Where do your WBC loyalties lie? I had to laugh at Tommy Lasorda's over-the-top nationalistic comments about team USA. I don't think that many people share his unmitigated loyalty. I mean, most MLB teams have players scattered all over various WBC teams. I'm sure many fans are rooting for favorite players to do well, regardless of the WBC team for which they happen to be playing. How can I not pull for Venezuela, when four prominent Tigers are represented there? Of course, it's also compelling to see a bunch of MLB all-stars playing together on Team USA's roster. Granderson's batting 9th tonight for goodness' sake!
Say what you will about the WBC, I'm having a ball.
