If you switch over to SNY you'll see a microcosm of why I hate the WBC.
It's spring training so I won't freak too much about the lopsided score, but a coworker just glared at the TV and asked "Who is Skillman?"
#12.  Oh you mean Cory Sullivan.  Had to expalin to coworker that half the Mets aren't there, so "Skillman" it is!
Then we took a peek at YES and saw a Team USA pitcher look awesome against some guys who won't be on the Yankees.  We wondered who it was. 
Heath Bell.
Coworker reminded me he was on the Mets.   He was?  He looks awesome, why did they get rid of him?
November 15, 2006: Traded by the New York Mets with Royce Ring to the San Diego Padres for Jon Adkins and Ben Johnson.
Mr Adkins was released by the Mets in 2007.  Mr. Johnson was granted free agency by the Mets in December 2007 although they have since re-signed him.   Mr. Bell is now the Padres closer and looks awesome against Yankee scrubs.
