USA lost to Japan in the semifinals of WBC. I watched the 8th and 9th inning. The US was close 4-6 in the 8th but gave up three more runs to lose to Yu Darvish and his 95 MPH fastball. Oh, Derek Jeter also registered an error in the 8th inning.

In a game against minor leaguers, Jorge Posada says his arm is 100% now. He threw out 3 of 4 base stealers.

CC Sabathia has emerged as a bona fide leader on the team. He’s itching for April 6 in Camden Yards. So am I. I’m so there!

Have a good week! Two more posts coming up!
