Sanchez to Start for P.R. Against Surprising Dutch Team
Starting pitcher: Brother Bob
Giants lefty Jonathan Sanchez takes the mound in a few hours at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in San Juan Puerto Rico in the final game of group D in the World Baseball Classic. He takes on the Netherlands, who upset the favored team from the Dominican Republic, eliminating them.
The Puerto Rican team features Ivan Rodriguez, or "Pudge,"undoubtedly one of the greatest catchers who ever played the game. Yadier Molina, brother of Giants Bengie, is the team's other catcher.
For some reason I'm more interested in the WBC than in Cactus League play.
