Hats off to Cuba for beating my Puerto Rico team last night to advance to the finals of the WBC. I'm totally rooting for Cuba now. I would love to see a bunch of guys making $60 a month knock off the DR and eitehr the US/Mexico or Korea in the world champsionship game. I was at the game last night -- a 4-hour drama -- and Cuba is a well-oiled machine, to pardon a tired cliche. That team just doesn't make errors. They work the count, they hit and run, they turn double plays, they take the extra base, and few, if any, of their pitchers even regularly hit 90 on the radar gun. Their pitchers are all like El Duque, change speed, hit your spots and don't walk guys. They are a real joy to watch for baseball fans. If you are one, check out their game Saturday against the Dominican Republic.
