    These Dominican fans are insane. They brought musical instruments (I saw a guy with a saxophone in the stands + plenty of drums), cheese graters, and air horns to the game. The noise is crazy.

    Who leaves their house for the game with a freaking cheese grater? "Hey wife, don't forget the CHEESE GRATER, we have to go to the game!"

    Well, actually Andrew Miller is now the worst.

    USA down 6-5 after Nelson Cruz goes deep.

    I just can't bring myself to care about the WBC, it's still just repackaged Spring Training to me.

    Agreed.... although if it really started to matter, and they interrupted the season to play it, that would suck too.

    Lets just stick with it being done now.

    Altuve benched for Odor so I guess they're not taking the WBC seriously anymore

    They're just height supremacists.

    I doubt he was 'benched'. Probably just given the game off, although he did pinch hit.

    What the hell is Bregman's issue with the Odor bat flip to where he was to tweet about it? I mean...he's got a teammate flipping his bat playing for Puerto Rico.

    Is this angst from the Rangers beating up on the Astros forever?

    He quickly deleted it but the internet never forgets.

    Players are going to flip bats. Deal with it. Don't whine about it.

    I'm perfectly fine with it. I want all Astros players and fans talking constant **** to all Rangers players and fans the entire season.

    It kind of rings hollow if you lose the season series in lopsided fashion.

    Win the season series and talk trash. I'm good with that.

    I think Bregman has an "under the covers" hatred for Odor we're not aware of until now. He wasn't even on the team when the home plate fiasco happened a few seasons back. You know...the one that eventually sparked the Rangers to "come and take it" from us....which they did.

    Wonder if he'll tell Correa to stop or act like he's been there before?
