The World Baseball Classic is heating up, and so is the US. Previously David Wright lifted the US over Italy in the Classic with a Grand Slam giving them a 6-2 lead. Now the US has conquered Canada and is off to the second round of the Classic. The US will now have to take on Puerto Rico to advance.
This is a great opportunity for the USA to make a strong showing in the classic which is being defended currently by Japan. The USA has yet to win the entire classic or even metal. That is also dominated by Japan.
