If Japan's league is worse than AAA, then explain why they did a lot better than the US in the WBC????
1. The Japan WBC team had plenty of Major Leaguers. (ichiro, ect)
2. The US team was weak. Hardly anyone played that was good, and the US looked at the whole tourney as just a scrimmage. Japan took it more seriously.
3. Japan plays the game alot different than the US. For example, more breaking balls, which would be tougher to adjust to, but that dosen't make them better.
Besides, I think if we put together an All Star prospect team, it would succeed in a tounrament like that. Look at Spring Training. Some of the most dominating players are prospects or minor leaguers.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
