No its actually worse than spring training. In ST at least you are playing almost every day instead of half time like the US. The US hitters in general look terrible out there, they simply are not in baseball form at all right now. They had 4 hitters on the whole team that hit well and everyone else was just off. The level of competition has absolutely nothing to do with being ready or not, if your timing is off you simply need repitition to fix it, something the US did not give its players in the WBC.
