A waning interest in baseball + economy = not a whole lot of fans.. at least not from the Toronto area at least. I suspect there will be a lot of fans coming across from New York state to catch the games however. If I'm not out or busy at home, maybe I'll tune into Sportsnet to catch an inning or two.

No pitching = DR will not be the champs.

It'll either be the States or Japan that takes it.

the doubters will be silenced, we have some underachieving arms, but if they can step up a bit, the bats will do more then their part, nobody has a lineup top to bottom that is comparable, even without all world Arod (altho i wish he would play, i wonder if the Yankees would take the same stance if he was still on Team USA??).

Here we go again.. whatever man. The Yankees kept him out because they want him to be healthy for the season.

This tournament means NOTHING. A lot of stars bypass it because it means nothing to them.

DR does have a good lineup, but in the end, pitching always wins - something they don't have.

Yeah. The winner of group C goes to the semis in San Diego -or Anaheim - one of the two. I can't remember which venue is hosting the semis and finals.

The game in which you're gonna see a lot of blue is Italy and Venezuela. I think the promoters were trying to capitalize on Toronto's huge Italian population, but yeah, that ain't gonna happen.

DR will make it out of their pool, but that's as far as they'll get.
DR has no pitching. And pitching win games, not offence.

I bought tickets to every game in Toronto. I'm a baseball junkie, going by myself, I don't care. I was up this morning watching China vs. Japan, went into work late to finish watching. I'm pumped for the upcoming games!
