World Baseball Classic

The game between the Domincan Republic and Venezuala just started. David Ortiz led off the second with a HUGE homerun to deep center. He looks like he's ready to play!

The New York Times was all over Steinbrenner this morning, about that sign hung at Legends Field apologizing for lack of stars at ST. They point out the incredible hypocrisy. Here's George, who trots out the Irish Tenor to sing "God Bless America" at every game, who can't support the efforts of the US team! And as Murray Chass points out in his article:
Last spring, for example, the Yankees played 30 exhibition games, but Rodriguez played 23, Jeter 21 and Williams 16. Yet Steinbrenner made no apologies to the fans who showed up for games and didn't get to see one or more of those players.

I wish the Sox-Orioles game was on today...
