Default World Baseball Classic 2013 Qualifiers

Anyone else watching? The 2013 WBC qualifiers started yesterday and all games are being streamed for free online @ web.worldbaseballclassic.com

Isreal beat South Africa yesterday in Florida, and Great Britain is trailing Canada in Germany as I type this. The quality of play has been a bit higher than I expected.

I for one really, really enjoy the WBC and am very happy I can watch this fall's contests online.

If I wasn't at work I'd be watching. :(

Canada just mercy-rule walked off Great Britain. Final: Canada 11-GB 1.

Wheels came off pretty hard for GB since they were hanging around til the 7th.

Spain-France tonight in Florida.

Awesome. Does anyone know if these stream live, or are all the videos posted after the game?

Hilarious. There's a catcher named Petr Cech on the Czech team. I guess that's where you'd expect a goalie to play.

They're live and you can watch the on archive after they end.

Streaming the qualifiers is a good marketing move by MLB to elevate the visibility of the WBC. Unfortunately, they're doing it during the pennant chase. Initially all the qualifiers were gonna be in November, but 2 of them got bumped to September for some reason.

While it might not be big-name players, my guess is that the games will be competitive.

I've looked all over wikipedia, but they don't say why. It sucks that they moved it up, because now Youk can't help Israel qualify. It also sucks for any other teams that would otherwise have MLBers playing for them.

Good luck to Spain, who won the FIBA Worlds in 06, the 08 and 12 Euros, and are the reigning World Cup champs. Imagine if they added a WBC to their resume...
