I am an american
I must root for eric hosmer and ian kinsler and marcus stroman
US has a boring roster. Lacked charisma
They won so what. They have a team of all stars
I was there man. PR people were great and made the game fun. Its a game afterall
This is 2017. No need to root for guys because we're from a certain country. The game is so global and the US is obviously a powerhouse. Whats exactly wrong with rooting for an underdog with players we're extremely familiar with? I cant root for lindor and beltran and correa when they wear a PR jersey, but can when theyre wearing a mlb jersey?
Not sure what you mean by "boring." I saw quite a bit of emotion on the American team. Maybe it's just not what you consider "charisma." Again, to each is own.
And baseball exists in other countries, I get that, but it's America's past-time sport. We should prove that every year we play in this thing.
The point of the WBC is to root for your country and your country's heritage in the game. MLB teams are just paid players with logos. Countries actually mean something IMO.
