It might hurt the pride of the American people a little bit but a loss to the Japan champion would be more publicity worldwide than the MLB could ever hope to pay for.

International interest? Of course, but none of that publicity is positive publicity. I don't at all see how America losing would make other countries buy MLB stuff or help them in any way.
