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.

I wondered want ever happened to Randall Simon. Wasn't he the one who tripped one of the sausages at a Brewers game?

Nonetheless, a huge upset!

This was fun. If a team were to beat the Sox for the AL pennant, it would be fun if it were the Royals.

Who knows, I really do not see it happening as the Royals do not have as many of promising players as the Rays came into 2008 had.
Last year when I said this about the Rays I got laughed at.
I am going to try to post my e Mail I sent last year in May plus my Sporting News Blog from July of Last year saying the rays would beat the Red Sox in the ALCS.
