Sporadic (and Depressed) WBC Update #4

First pitch of the game: Ball, over but low.

Second pitch of the game: Right down the middle — batting practice for Brian Roberts, who strokes it into the center field bleachers.

Never a bad time for a photo of Roberts, seen here celebrating with his teammates.

Last pitch of the game: Adam Dunn takes a called strike and Japan eliminates USA with a final score of 9-4.

Godsdammit, Davey Johnson! Curse you and your lack of a brain! Don’t you know that when your starter is becoming allergic to the strike zone and giving up more than a couple runs in an inning, you’re supposed to have someone warming up in the bullpen?

Ugh. I’ve never been more glad that “You’re An Idiot” is one of our tags.

Here, Kentucky Derby can be seen about to give up even more runs.

Sporadic WBC Update #3

Still not so sporadic, eh? Anyway.

USA v. Japan, 9 PM Eastern. That makes it 6 PM Pacific, which means I am leaving for Dodger Stadium in a few minutes.

Pitching tonight will be Roy Oswalt (USA) and Daisuke Matsuzaka (Japan). So it’s this guy:

Kentucky Derby. Dont ask.

"Kentucky Derby". Don't ask.

versus this guy:

I dont know what that is, either.

I don't know what that is, either.

Liveblog: WBC Game A4, Japan vs. Korea

Click here to view the liveblog, which will start at approximately 5 AM Eastern/2 AM Pacific. The unnecessarily complicated Daisuke Matsuzaka will be pitching for Japan, and that’s pretty much all I know in advance. I’ll use this as an excuse to post a few pictures of Yu Darvish.

Darvish adjusts his hat in the outfield. Something about this picture seems hilarious to me — or maybe its just 12:30 in the morning. Yeah, thats probably it.
