It chaps my ass that the whole thing isn't on TV.  I mean, we've got entire channels dedicated to poker, rodeo, and garbage reality tv.

MLB Network is the exclusive home of the WBC.

Just saw this headline   ...   Teixeira out with WBC injury.

http://espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/story/_/id/9023909/mark-teixeira-new-york-yankees-8-10-weeks-wrist-injury

He hurt himself hitting off a tee. I can't see how the WBC is to blame.

If he hadn't been at the WBC, this wouldn't have happened.   He would have been in the Yankee camp doin' HGH with ARod.   I just report the news.   Take it up with ESPN.    :P

Is the WBC included in the MLB.tv subscription?

His defense didn't exactly help him out...

This is what's wrong with MLB Network carrying the WBC.   There are/will be multiple games on at the same time and they only have one channel.  ESPN can air things on more than one channel.

SCHOOP! 

Who the heck is this Markwell guy for Nederlands?  Beats Korea and Cuba?

Checked it out.  From Curacao, age 32, I'm not sure he played since 2008.  Pitched in the Jays system from age 16 - 22, reaching AA, then pitched in Holland for a couple of years.  No stats on BR after his age 27 year, although they list him with a team through 2011.

He always has been just an average pitcher and just happened to have this one great year.
