Two WBC games that REALLY don't mean Jack

All four teams from Pools C and D that are advancing to the next round are playing tonight, just to try and assert their dominance by being declared Pool Victor.

Those two games are USA vs Venezuela (MLBN) and Puerto Rico vs. Netherlands (ESPN2)

Both Davey Johnson and Billy Ripken have told me on XM lately that Lilly would be starting the game and Guthrie would be pitching after him, but after Lilly pitched three innings they brought in Hawkins and Grabow! LIARS! Perhaps he'll start the next inning though. Venezuela currently leads 1-0 in the 4th.

The Netherlands is finding Puerto Rico a tougher task than the Dominican Republic, as PR leads 3-0 in the bottom of the 6th.

Oh, and Mexico plays Australia tonight at 10 on MLBN. Loser goes home, so I guess that one matters.

I'll be tuning in to see if Guts faces off against Melmo.
