Caribbean Series, Day 3

No Live-Blog today, as I’ve decided to actually sit back and just enjoy the game for the day. I’ll jot down comments and report back at the end of the day. That is, if I don’t get too distracted by watching superbowl highlights since I won’t be able to watch the game.

Random musing: what’s up with the Orioles that they’re fine with not one, but two of their big money guys playing in the series when every other team refuses to release even its role players? Miguel Tejada and Ramon Hernandez are the two biggest names in the series, and Daniel Cabrera started for the Caribbean Series champion Licey Tigers in the ’06 series. Either Baltimore trainers want their guys playing their way into shape early, or there’s an organizational recklessness at play when it comes to risk management.

[Update] Venezuela trounces Mexico 13-3.

In 3 games so far, Mexico has been outscored 33-4.  Ouch.

Moment of the game: after Karim Garcia was ejected for arguing a double play call, he tried to get the Mexican fans riled up as he walked back to the dugout.  He got absolutely no response from the otherwise enthusiastic Mexican contingent at the tournament.

The fact that Mexico’s best center fielder is this guy really tells you all you need to know about the team.
