    In Orlando right now and my Dominican Wife was sooo proud and really pushed it in my face when the DR won in the earlier round against the U.S. I told her to wait before crowing too much as the tourney wasn't over yet (and a snide remark that Americans really don't care about this tourney anyway, which is mostly true). Then when the DR was eliminated and the U.S. was in the final her attitude completely changed and she stayed up till past midnight last night to watch the game, cheering every-time the U.S. scored. I asked her why the change and she said she loves the U.S. and hates the Porta Ricans.... too funny !! GOOOOO SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS!!! MAD BUM!!!! JUAN MARICHAL, The Dominican Dandy!!!!

    The good aspect of the US win is that it may help publicize it for next year.

    I think it is every 4 years.  Most people in the US do not seem to care too much.  Some nights March Madness was going on that is pretty popular.  I think it would be nice if everyone sent their best players and winning it became a bigger deal.  I enjoyed the games that I watched and I don't watch a lot of baseball.

    There you go..... Typical American here, baseball fan, I had no clue it wasn't annual.

    It should be the REAL World Series.

    Congrats to the USA team. 

    Completely blew away PR.

    As to the 'Real World Series' it would be interesting to see if any of the national teams can hold up against the 'World Series Winner'. It was suggested by the Marlin's coach though.

    If all the best U.S. players played it would be a landslide. No Mike Trout,Bryce Harper,Mooky Betts,etc... And NONE of the top U.S. pitchers played.

    Many of the top players didn't get permission from their clubs. This is valid for all participants.
