Who else loves the Dutch?

Does anyone else enjoy extra-innings pitcher’s duels? Does anyone else think that Roy Halladay’s 10-inning CG shutout was one of the coolest things ever? Is that too specific for people to remember?

There’s a simpler question hiding here: Who else thought it was cool that nobody scored until the 11th inning in tonight’s Dominicana v. Nederland game?

Its like theyve just upset a team loaded with Major League players or something!

It's like they've just beat a heavily favored, ML player-loaded team or something!

I know, I should probably stop posting random photos of Ricky VandenHurk. But he’s so cute….

Nederland plays Puerto Rico at 5:30 PM Eastern tonight (Wednesday) to determine the top seed in Pool 2. VandenHurk should be comfortable pitching in his native Dolphin Stadium once Pool 2 play starts.

The Reanimated Corpse of Sidney Ponson

What do you think of when someone says “Sidney Ponson”? If you’re like me, your first thought is probably that they’re mispronouncing his name again, and you want to write “Pon-SONE not PON-sawn” on their forehead in big black Sharpie. Then again, if you’re fairly normal, you probably think something like “Oh, yeah, that guy who may or may not have thrown a strike that one time”. Well, Mr. I-Can’t-Hit-The-Strike-Zone just did this:

4 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 1 K.

I’m impressed.

They play Puerto Rico at 6:30 PM Eastern tomorrow (March 9th). I’m probably going to commandeer a friend’s house and TV, since I don’t get MLB Network and I can’t seem to find ESPN Deportes.
