Netherlands eliminate Dominican Republic
The Netherlands have defeated the Dominican Republic in the WBC.
The Netherlands are loaded with Top Quality Major League Talent..(Randall Simon and the Great
Sidney Ponson) While the Dominican Republic only have David Ortiz, Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano, Pedro Martinez, and Hanley Ramirez, along with a handful of others.
Some may say this is an epic upset along the lines of the USA over the USSR in 1980 Olympic Hockey, or the Amazing Mets over the Orioles in 1969 or even the 2008 Tampa Bay Rays over the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS in 2008..
But this will ultimatly be comapred to is the start of stunners in 2009 capping off with the Kansas City Royals defeating the Boston Red Sox in the 2009 ALCS.
