David beats Goliath

Currently the World Baseball Classic is going on.  The WBC is very similar to what Olympic Basketball and Hockey have become, the professional players go and represent their teams in a month long tournament.  Since the Olympics is held during the regular season, MLB came up with the idea of having the WBC during spring training.

Last night, the lowly Netherlands team beat the mighty Dominican Republic for the second time in three outings, sending the Dominicans home.  Nearly every starter on the Dominican team plays in MLB, while not a single starter from the Netherlands plays at the big league level. 

It is an equal task to Keller High beating the Rangers (I think the 2006 Indian Team would have had a shot against the lowly Rangers that year).
