Well, Jose Reyes will be back in Port St. Lucie a lot sooner than expected.
In case you missed it, the Netherlands shocked the Dominican Republic for the second time, winning 2-1 in 11 innings to eliminate the Dominicans from the World Baseball Classic. If they care about baseball in the Netherlands, they should be dancing in the streets after beating the powerhouse Dominicans twice in four days.
Reyes (below left, with Robinson Cano) scored the Dominicans’ only run (on an error), but the Netherlands responded with two runs, thanks in part to two errors.
This has to be devastating to the Dominicans, reeling over Alex Rodriguez’s disclosure that his cousin bought his steroids in the Dominican as well and Miguel Tejada’s perjury plea. The Dominicans needed a boost in the WBC and got another embarrassment instead.
