That is the greatest.
There is no praying in baseball.  :)

I thought that was crying.

Either way, they're not praying, they're just reading a story

Japan beating Netherlands was good. Now we just gotta beat Netherlands again and we are going to LA for the final 4. Nutso!

Not so sure. What if Cuba beats Japan and then Netherlands? And Israel beats Netherland and looses to Japan? That's makes Israel and Cuba 2-1

Yeah I was discounting that possibility but in the event of 3 2-1 teams (or 3 1-2 teams) these are the tiebreakers used:

Quote
• The first tiebreaker considers each team's runs allowed per inning of defense played (including partial innings), only in games against the other two teams that are tied. In other words, if the U.S. ends up tied with Colombia and Canada at 1-2, its two runs allowed in 10 innings in its win over Colombia would count, but its seven runs allowed to the D.R. would not.

• If necessary, the second tiebreaker is the same as the first, except only earned runs are counted.

• If there is still a tie, the relevant teams then would be ranked in order of highest batting average -- again considering only contests played against each other.

• Finally, the last resort would be a drawing of lots, conducted by World Baseball Classic, Inc.

So it's key to keep runs allowed down. So 4-1 win is extra huge.

"I guess the only question is how many Starpoints will it cost to throw out the first pitch of the World Baseball Classic’s championship game between Israel and the United States 😀"

The same as it will be this year to throw out the first pitch of the World Series between the Cubs and Indians.  :P

Cuba beating Japan 4-2 in the 5th. If score holds all 4 teams would be 1-1, and Israel controls their own fate (beating Japan would knock them out and the other game is Netherlands-Cuba where one of them would also have to lose their second game). Loooong way to go though.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Doesn't seem so. Probably because very few MLB players participate. Probably wouldn't be even close to a contest if they did...

If Israel loses but Cuba wins Israel should still have a chance to make the tiebreaker, no?

Right now Israel gave up the most runs but depending on the outcome of the final two games that may change.

The three-way tiebreaker calls for the two teams with the lower runs allowed per defensive inning play a head-to-head tiebreaker game while the other is eliminated.
