Default Puerto Rico beat USA at baseball

This is old news but I was at an uncle's funeral and forgot to post about this last Saturday.

Beating the Titans of the world is like the best feeling ever. And at their own sport is an even better feeling with our B team.


Too bad they lost the first place against the Dominic Republic though

THey are our rivals since forever!

Well, baseball and its popularity evolved. You don't see England winning every World Cup nowadays.

Good for them that they beat us.

Default Re: Puerto Rico beat USA at baseball

no hate, and the PR produces plenty of great baseball players, but the USA didn't use anything close to its best lineup. most teams heavily discourage their players from participating in the WBC because of spring training, which actually sucks because it'd be a lot more fun to watch if we got to see the best players actually play. the USA isn't really a "titan" in the WBC, they've actually never won. they just don't send the best squad they could

Yeah we didn't send our good players either because MLB. Screw 'em
Even still I am 100% sure both at their best strength Pr will still come out on top 'most' of the time.

So what? USA is not known for the best baseball players. All of the best players are Dominican or Cuban or something.

Seems like most MLB guys are just getting ready for the season.

The best players are from the U.S. and the Dominican Republic.

The lineup the US had was still easily one of, if not the, best in the tournament. They could've gotten a few better starters to go but the talent was there. Baseball is just a funny sport where the better overall team can still lose quite a bit in a short series or round robin.

Joey Votto is actually Canadian but there's plenty of other players who can take his place.

PR and DR produce some outstanding ball players.

This is to say nothing of the fact that about 6 people in the US care at all about the WBC or who we send to play it.

All the same, grats @ PR
