I wasn't the only fan hoping for a bench-clearing brawl Sunday night during the World Baseball Classic, was I? I would have even settled for a minor dust-up. Instead, I got nothing but some shouting, chest-pounding and a feeling of disappointment in my heart.
With a six-run lead over the Netherlands in the eighth, Team USA's closer Matt Lindstrom gave up a leadoff homer which Bryan Engelhardt absolutely crushed. The native Curacaoan took a nice, long gander at the team's first and only longball of the tournament before jogging lightly around the bases. Not cool.
