It's A World Baseball Championship Without The American Team!

Tonight a team of Major League Baseball players from Mexico beat a team of Major League Baseball players from the USA. As a result, neither team will advance to the final rounds of the World Baseball Classic tournament this weekend here in San Diego.

Mexico's win sent sent Japan to the semifinals where they will try a third time to defeat Korea on Saturday. The winner of that game will play the winner of Saturday's other game between Cuba and the Dominican Republic for the championship on Monday. (Weather permitting. At the tail end of San Diego's driest winter in years, rain is forecast for this weekend.)

Tonight's elimination of the United States from the WBC championship dramatically changed the tournament for Mister Americano. It's no longer the WBC; it's now the WABC, World Anybody But Cuba tournament.

Go Dominican Republic!

Go Korea!

Go Japan!

Abajo Fidel!
