WBC Game Chat: Puerto Rico vs. Netherlands, 4:30 pm PT
2006-03-08 15:30
by Bob Timmermann

Live from Hiram Bithorn Stadium!

The Dutch team, which consists of players from Dutch possessions in the Caribbean as well as the European continent, makes its WBC debut against 1-0 Puerto Rico in Pool C play.

Puerto Rico eked out a 2-1 win over Panamá on Tuesday thanks to an Alex Rios home run and an RBI single from Bernie Williams. The big question mark for Puerto Rico is the health of Carlos Delgado, who is battling tendinitis in his left elbow. If Delgado sits again, Williams should get another start at DH.

The Dutch, managed by former Yankee Robert Eenhorn, will start Rob Cordemans on the mound while Puerto Rico is expected to start Seattle Mariner Joel Piñeiro.

Andruw Jones is the star hitter for the Netherlands (and he can even speak Dutch), but after Jones, the pickings get slim with guys like Randall Simon and Eugene Kingsale expected to compete with the likes of Carlos Beltran and Pudge Rodriguez.

I'm thinking that this one won't be as interesting as the first two games of the day.

No doubt Bob is torn between the Puerto Rico v. Netherlands tilt and the Monmouth-Fairleigh Dickinson clash on ESPN2.

Bob is going to a concert tonight and will miss much of the evening action.

Casey will have to keep tabs on it and update you when you return.

I have operatives feeding me the scores.

I don't trust Casey with the remote yet.
