Is anyone else watching the game right now? The Mexican pitcher threw at a Canadian batter twice in a 9-3 game and then we had a donnybrook! The American broadcasters remarked on how the Canadian players grabbed the uniforms in the fight (and the hockey connection) and really threw some haymakers. This wasn`t you`re typical baseball bench clearing brawl, it was a hockey brawl.!

Now the Mexican fans (the game is in Mexico) are throwing stuff at the Canadian players and bench; the game is about to be called I think. It`s getting dangerous out there.

Stupid fans and some of the players don't realize that this tournament is based on run differential. That's why Canada is pouring it on.

Disgusting act by the Mexican player to tell his pitcher to hit the batter.

Mexican fans acting pretty classless too. Throwing stuff at the coaches is just idiotic.

If you've ever seen Canada men's soccer games in Latin America you'll know that this behavior , regrettably, is pretty standard down there.

Canada rolled on Mexico in more ways than one today.

Love how Canada didn't take any crap. Mexico totally started that whole thing.

Love how the Canadians all stuck up for each other in that brawl. Didn't take any crap.

Alot of the Mexican players just sat back and tried to look intimidating. They didn't do much though. The Canadians weren't afraid to muck it up there.

It was totally a result of the dumb tournament rules.

But yes, we sure won that brawl (and the game).

The Mexican team clearly didn't think that through, fighting the team from a country whose national sport is war on ice.

30% of Arizona's population is Mexican. And that doesn't include unregistered immigrants.

Can't get much closer to playing in Mexico than that. Other than if the game had been played in Texas.

I don't expect it to last, but boy would it be nice to see an upset over the US! I doubt our pitching can hold up though.

3-2 Canada.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

Down by the River - Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
