dude what did I just say?
how many times has this happened now?
there's something about pitchers in baseball.
I'm losing track of how often this happens. compared to any other position in any other sport. what the f/ck is with the bad luck of MLB pitchers?
this doesn't happen to NFL punters. or NHL goalies. or NBA power forwards. lol.
but baseball pitchers apparently need to stay away from motor vehicles. especially back in their home country. maybe we should stop letting them go home during the offseason...

The roads in the Dominican Republic are very different than what we see in the states (obviously) which sucks because we've now lost two pitchers in a short span, and of course there was that Oscar Taveras incident not too long ago as well.
I really liked Ventura, he was a tough competitor who always gave the game that attitude that makes the games he pitch worth watching; saw Archer speaking about him on MLB Network and I'm glad to see there's pitchers in the Majors who share the same thought, despite how other opposing teams look at him on the field.
RIP, my condolences to his family and his team.

I have a buddy playing for Australia this year. He played in the last one too. He is from California but he holds dual citizenship. If anyone wants to follow how he does his name is Mike Walker. He will most likely get to play 3 games then go home cause Australia never makes it past pool play.
Also plays for the Melbourne Aces.

So I'm a bit late on this the US won the WBC I really kinda lost interest in it this year and enjoyed the one in 2013 a bit more but that's just me. March is really a horrible time for it you have spring training going on so a couple players wont participate in it, it's competing with March Madness so not a lot of people are into it.
They should have done it in November it's after the World series and people want to see more baseball though apparently the ratings for this years WBC were higher so idk.

honestly I've never watched a moment of the WBC... it's not like the world cup or anything.
