Bobby Valentine wants a US/Japan championship series

I really doubt Japan is anywhere near the US's calibure, but he's right; it would make quite a chunk of change. What do you guys think?

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

MLB won't do it cause they have everything to lose. Most people already assume that MLB is better baseball. So if they lose they lose credibility, if they win then so what it was expected.

Exactly. Plus, the Japanese really play a very different style of baseball than MLB.

There's no incentive for MLB besides making a ton of money. Why shouldn't they see what they are up against? Is it better to just stick their heads in the sand? A little competition could do nothing except improve the game.
