The World Baseball Classic

- Cuba is once again making apparent their place as the most incredible source of baseball talent in the world, much to the chagrin of "old-school" baseball broadcasters like Charlie Steiner, who is forced to utter attenuated compliments through gritted teeth.

- Ubaldo Jimenez and Pedro Martinez made impressive showings despite the Domincan Republics's embarrassing first-round exit following two one-run losses to the Netherlands. Jimenez pitched four innings and surrendered no runs, two hits, and zero walks with 10 strikeouts. Pedro made a pair of appearances and allowed only two baserunners in six innings, with six strikeouts.
