Newsflash ladies and gentlemen, if you put the perennially hapless Tampa Bay Devil Rays on the field with any professional team from any other country odds are the DRays would win that series. Major League Baseball is comprised of the thirty best baseball teams in the world. Period. There is no arguing this point. It is a fact.
Now, that being said, that doesn't mean that the best baseball players in the world only come from the United States. Major League Baseball is probably the most diverse professional American sport. There are players from every Latin American country you can think of, blacks, whites, Asians, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Canadians, Australians etc. etc. etc. If baseball is played at all in your country, odds are you've got a Major Leaguer. Keeping that in mind, it can be called a "World Series" because the best baseball players from around the world only come here to play. They don't stay in their own coutries because to be honest, we're the only ones around paying the big bucks for it.
So to all those idiots on talk radio. NYAH!
