Sometimes I feel like the only guy who thinks the world Baseball Classic is cool. I'm real happy to be able to see real games played in March, instead of half-hearted exhibition match-ups with only one or two starters that last through the game more than a few innings. I hope I'll be able to watch a couple games. I think this thing is gonna be big. Don't forget, nobody thought the Superbowl was a big deal it's first year, either.
While I was away in San Francisco, my TiVo recorded a couple Mets spirng training matchups, one against Puerto Rico. I have a lot of TV to catch up to!
One thing that made my cross-country flights more enjoyable was listening to MLB Radio's daily podcast on my iPod. Everyday is a half hour show that is essentially a "best of" from that day's MLBRadio's broadcast. Yesterday I listened to Tommy Lasorda preach about how great the WBC was, and I also heard Darryl Strawberry report from Mets Spring Training. I highly recommend the podcast!
