Unlike their competitive edge in that international sport called Global Commerce, China stunk in their World Baseball debut.

They got their asses handed to them by former and future enemies, Japan by the score of 18-2.

BOXSCORE

Here is the Chinese Batting Order:
Sun
Liu
Li
Yang
Guo
Zhang
Wang
Zhang
Wang
Chen
Feng
Li
Zhao
Bu
Xu
Li
Li
Huang

What idiot would bring in Li to pinch hit for Liu? You're down by sixtreen runs, what the hell are you screwing with the guy's confidence for? And don't even get me started about starting Chen over Yang. Sure, you brought the Yangster in late in the game, but what the hell were you thinking?

I wonder if Chinese internet authrotarians go to the trouble of censoring criticism of their baseball manager in the guise of spinning all self-appointed authority to appear wise.
