Also, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic will be playing the WBC Final at 5pm, so we can use this open thread for that as well. In related news, I got to do a short phone interview with Alex Rios of Team Puerto Rico (and Team White Sox) earlier this afternoon, so look for something about that in the next couple days.
