No Surprise Here......

Cuba won yet another World Cup title, beating South Korea in the title game 3-0. Cuba has dominated this event and the amateur baseball scene for quite some time now. I'm eager to see if Cuba will participate in the Baseball World Classic, when it will face the world's best players from the MLB and NPB. Panama edged host nation - the Netherlands 7-6 for the bronze medal.

Taiwan did manage to place a member of it's team to the tournament All-Star team. Yung-Chi Chen, a member of the Mariners organization, was named an All-Star at 2B. In the 8 games Taiwan played, Chen had a great all-around showing, leading the team in hitting(BA), and showing a tremendous glove (o errors). 2B is Chen's most natural position, although the Mariners have been playing Chen at 3B in the minors.
