With Teixeira now injured too, it's looking fortunate that the Jays play the Yankees 7 times in April.

No A-Rod, no Granderson, no Teixeira. The Yanks' opening day lineup will boast the likes of Eduardo Nunez, Chris Stewart, Dan Johnson, and Travis Hafner (who hasn't had a good year since 2007). Then there's 38 year old Jeter, 39 year old Suzuki, Brett Gardner coming off an injury that forced him to miss virtually all of last season, and a sharply declining Youkilis.

They still have Robinson Cano, but he might be gone after this season. Same with Granderson.

According to reports, the Jays Lawrie will not be in the lineup for Canada in their matchup today in the World Baseball Classic.  Lawrie has strained ribs.

Canada getting clubbed by Italy 6-2 in the 6th. Looks like this tournament could be over pretty fast for Canda if they don't get their act together - Italy already beat Mexico and would be 2-0.

And they aren't even from Italy.

Whether they win or lose this game, that Canada has to play a bunch of Americans who've never even been to Italy is a joke.

Yea, Canada led off the top of the 9th with a bunt single when they were up 9-3. The Mexican 3rd baseman told the pitcher to hit the next batter. He threw inside and missed hitting the batter and after a warning he drilled the batter with 3rd pitch and all hell broke loose.

Mexico wasn't happy with the bunt single with 9-3 score, but run differential matters in the tournament.

Yeah, just reading that they were also upset over some takedown slides or something earlier in the game.

Yep and bottom line their ability to advance is going to hinge on them beating the US in their 3rd game (barring some kind of absurdity where Italy ends up going 3-0).

Considering the US lost to Mexico, anything is possible in this tournament. The win today should ensure that Canada will not have to qualify for the next WBC. Head to head is the 1st tiebreaker for a 2 team tie. A 3 team tie at 1-2 means break out the calculators.

"Nobody will be surprised that Team Canada was involved," said Larry Walker, Canada's first-base coach who later was grazed by a foul ball thrown back at him from the stands. "Because that's what they'll say. All those damn hockey players. I don't think this was necessarily started by us. We were invited into it, so we danced."

8th inning, Canada just scored a run against the U.S. to trail 4-3.  Men at 2nd and 3rd, 2 outs.  Good game.

Yep, but 5-4 not 4-3.  Canada will at least get Votto up in the 9th, can't let them get any more.

EDIT: Why is Whitt still the manager?

Yep, you're right about the score.  And it pretty much went to hell after I posted about the game... :(
