Sure, you may have kicked my country’s butt…

..but I’m going to post a picture of you looking like a goof on my blog.  How’s it feel now, Chris Denorfia?  Yeah, that’s right.  Not so funny, is it?  As a side note – I got terrible marks in gym class because there was always a sportsmanship component.  You may have noticed – I’m not a good loser.

On a more serious note though – it was a great game by Italy, and not a great one from Canada.  Its all well and good to have an entire bullpen full of relievers ready to go for this game – but what they really needed was one guy who could go four innings and not leak runs.  maybe Scott Richmond was that guy.  We’ll never know.  Jesse Crain showed that a legitimate MLB-calibre arm could nullify the Italian bats pretty quickly, so its a shame that Richmond never got a chance to show his stuff.
