HEADLINES ARE MISLEADING: PANAMA OUSTED FROM WBC



The tone of the stories make it sound like there was a big upset when Brazil beat Panama in the final game of the World Baseball Classic.  To baseball fans all over the world it was considered an upset.  Our small country of Panama has fielded excellent teams in the past and has the reputation as a baseball powerhouse.  No one expected the upstart, Brazil, to bring their ‘A’ game.  Well, they did.  They beat Panama twice in the series qualifier and advanced into the 2013 classic.  Panama has nothing to be ashamed of.  They played well. Let’s put this in perspective. 
Brazil has a population of 198,000,000. (look at all those zeros, folks)
Panama has a population just a shade over 3,000,000. 
So, that’s 66 times more people to draw on for outstanding players.  SIXTY SIX TIMES MORE PEOPLE!!
Panama lost their last game 1 to 0. My hat is off to Manager Roberto Kelly and his entire team; all stars in my thinking.
Kinda makes you wonder.  What would happen if Panama diverted their sports resources to baseball instead of futbol?

  1. Can I simply just say what a comfort to find someone who truly understands what they're discussing on the web. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people really need to look at this and understand this side of the story. It's surprising you aren't more popular given that you definitely possess the gift.
