WBC Game Chat: Japan vs. China, 1:30 am PT

I'm guessing that this will be the Gameday link because I'm not going to stay up to watch this game. If that doesn't work try this.

Koji Uehara is expected to start for Japan. I can't find out who will start for China, but don't get emotionally attached to him as the guy won't be out there long.

In the opener, Korea beat Taiwan 2-0 in the opener before 5,193 at the Tokyo Dome. Expect a bigger crowd with the home country team playing and the game starting at night, 6:30 pm Tokyo time.

As for me, I plan on finding out the score when I wake up.

Um...but I am watching the Korea vs ChT game right now because ESPN controls our lives.

I do want to see the evil Chinese uniforms on TV at some point though, thanks to whoever linked us to their hats over on DT.

So you are going for the NBC Olympics type experiene of watching the WBC?

Kind of, except I haven't even watched my tape of the Sweden v Finland game yet.

But at least there is no Bob Costas calling the WBC!

First shot, before going to the highlights of the first game, is Tommy Lasorda jabbering at Ichiro. Ichiro is fidgeting, and pretending to be somewhere else. Bad omen.

apparently people who watch baseball are a good market for erectile dysfunction drugs.

2-2 in the bottom of the fourth. Bob may be surprised when he wakes up. Wei Wang hits the WBC's first HR.

So, not too surprised, maybe. 6-2, top 5th. Nishioka wastes Kawasaki's SB with a three run HR. Peculiarly, it didn't kill the rally; Fukudome goes back to back (his first hit of the game).

11-2 Japan!

Maybe I'm stuck in the distant past, but this headline makes me a little uncomfortable: "Japan Shows No Mercy in Win Over China."

18-2 final.

I wasn't all that surprised.

I think China is going to get more of the same tonight against Korea.
