About That World Baseball Classic...


We've received several e-mails over the last few days regarding the World Baseball Classic and who we would bet on. 

For the most part, apathy has prevented us from posting anything about it. 

But ask, and you shall receive (though rarely any books are still taking futures on who will win at this point). 

If we had to bet on the WBC, we would take our home town team, the good 'ol US of A. The United States pitching staff will just wear down the competition, even in such a short tournament. 

Roy Oswalt (pictured above) is just one of the many weapons the USA has on the mound, and the team's depth makes the pitch count limitations less of an obstacle for the US. 

The States opened at about +175 to win the whole thing, and as they've advanced, you can imagine the line is nowhere near that anymore. 

Still, if you get the chance to bet on the United States head-to-head, that's probably the wisest investment you can make in this tourney.
