Marcus  Stroman  is  a  beast .

On Wednesday evening in Dodger Stadium in front of over 51,000 fans, the United States defeated Puerto Rico by an 8-0 final to win the 2017 World Baseball Classic championship.

Marcus Stroman was the star of the show, tossing six no-hit innings against a previously undefeated Puerto Rico squad  before being lifted following a leadoff double. Ian Kinsler and Brandon Crawford -- Team USA’s double-play combination -- both drove in a pair of runs apiece.

Late in the game, the United States broke it wide open, thus securing their first WBC crown. Japan (twice) and the Dominican Republic were the tournament’s prior winners.

Makes it even better because of the harassment he and his mother were receiving.

Are you Puerto Rican?  Or are you a turncoat?

Good for the USA and I am glad the the other team in the finals was Puerto Rico.

We'd never lose if Puerto Rico and the USA combined.

The Dominican Republic and Cuba may have some thing to say about that

The entire WBC drew 1,086,720 fans in attendance, which shattered the previous high of 885,212 by 23 percent.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
