Team Mexico and Sergio Romo feel the hostility while playing in Arizona.

If I was Team Mexico I would've protested playing in the ignorant and racially divided state of Arizona.....it's clear that they are NOT welcomed.

This is so wrong in so many ways. This should have never happened.

I for one, am VERY Happy to see Mexico beat the U.S in the terrible/despicable state of Arizona.
Congrats to them, and lol @ U.S baseball in general.....I think it's official now!
Baseball is no longer dominated by Americans, Latinos and Asians have shown that they have just as good if not better players and much better national teams than the U.S.
As a Latin, I'm proud of them.
As an American, I can't help but be a little sad at how much we suck at this event.....seriously, this WBC thing was supposed to be a way to show that American players are the best at baseball, that this is OUR game.
This will most likely be the third straight disappointing WBC where the U.S does absolutely nothing.Logic and reason is all you need.

I take it Alex that you don't follow too much Baseball?
Venezuela and the Dominican Republic have produced tons of major league players over the year, but if the US wanted to win the meaningless and terrible timing WBC, they easily could. Players that aren't participating for various reasons are guys like Justin Verlander, Clayton Kershaw, David Price, Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Prince Fielder, Troy Tulowitzki etc.
Oh, and the WBC wasn't about showing that the US was the best, it was about making money.Click banner for tradelist

The old Labour Day Baseball Tournament in Grand Forks, BC was better baseball anyway.
I miss that tournament.

But go talk to some people, they'll still claim the U.S is the absolute best for baseball.
They kinda remind me of England Soccer supporters.
Just because the Premier league is in England, and England does have many fantastic players, that doesn't mean they dominate the sport....in fact their national team have been down right disappointing the past few decades.
Although, I will agree that the WBC is placed at a terrible time.
But the U.S just doesn't have the players to match up against the Latin teams....no way!
Yes, I suppose so, but it's not a LOT of money.....the fans (MLB fans) don't seem to be buying into this tournament.Logic and reason is all you need.
