You know, this is shameful for the US. Yeah, I know it's a Global game, and, yeah, the international players are good, but tell me if I'm wrong here.

Shouldn't a lineup that includes several future HOFers be able to score more than 3 runs against slightly better than average pitching from Mexico over 18 freaking innings?

Hell, a bad call against Japan, and the game against Mexico wouldn't have even mattered. It's one thing for the Hockey team to only be mediocre in the Olympics, since the sport of Hockey is a distant 5th in popularity in the US, but baseball is supposed to be our national pasttime (although we all know football is the #1 sport).

I'm sticking with Rome's take. If the US basically hosts and sponsors the thing, but can't even compete, let alone win the damned thing, then don't even bother having it.

The part that pisses me off the most about this tournament is the fact that we had Derek Lee sitting on the bench while players of "lower value" were playing. The manager feels he has to play every player on the team. While doing that, we end up losing.

If they decide to have this pathetically managed tournament next year, I hope it's after the season is over. We don't have to take guys out of Spring training and feel the need to play them over a Derek Lee. IMO, If you don't field your best possible ball team, it's pointless in even holding the tournament. It's a joke.

The problem with with the US team in my opinion is a problem you see with alot of All Star teams, they didnt play as a team. They were not together long enough to come together as a unit. Alot of these other teams have been playing for a while when someone like ARod has only 25 or so ABs. That is not enough, it takes every bit of at least 50 to get yourself back into the swing of the game.

as much as i'm proud to be american i'm also proud to be mexican so i can't really say i'm disappointed with the loss. and better now then later, lets face it, the dominican republic is a power house and US didn't really have a chance to win it all anyway
