I will make this simple and sweet.... The American Baseball player next time the classic rolls around better be on that field. There is no reason all our top players in major league baseball should not be playing. I think our performance in this world classic was sad and shows the lack of pride our players have for there country they are overpaid and unwilling to do anything that might maybe hurt them. It seems to me the japanese and koreans love to play in this classic, if it has to do with baseball they want in. The Japenese played fundamental baseball, clean and by the book. Something the Americans forgot about alongtime ago.
