I guess I'm a real hypocrite when it comes to the WBC. I enjoy watching it, but I'd rather not see Sox players compete in it, either.
Any argument based on Phil Rogers and the fact that "most Americans" aren't interested is a weak argument.
If I believed in Phil Rogers and "popularity"- I'd be a Cubs fan.
China-Australia will be at least as interesting as a midweek Astros-Twins game or other match ups from MLB over the course of a season. The WBC games are a nice way to get a baseball fix while waiting for Opening Day.
