MLB Bullets Has No Regrets

USA TODAY Sports

The Nationals and the Blue Jays are on a collision course to play each other in the World Series, at least in their own minds. Team USA players are dealing with the fallout from their defeat. And Cooperstown is going to honor the doctor and the patient behind the most famous surgery in sports.

I'll write more about this in a WBC wrap up later today, but if you didn't watch the Puerto Rico/Japan game last night you missed a great game and a huge upset. Additionally, you missed the greatest TOOTBLAN in baseball history since the great Fred Merkle. Or the worst, depending on whether or not you're a fan of Japan.

In case you haven't heard, the WBC is going to have a new champion.

Here is where I usually talk about the University of Iowa, where I met my wife. But before she went to Iowa, she graduated from Gonzaga, who received the number one seed in the NCAA West regional. True story: while I had been introduced to her earlier, the first time I ever spoke to her was at the Iowa Field House. We talked about the Iowa women's basketball team and she said "I don't even think my [undergrad] school has a basketball team." I immediately told her about John Stockton, which was ironic since we discovered she'd been to his dad's bar many times. She's now a big Bulldog fan.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster, because we're going to crown a new WBC Champion.
