Six and a half hours of baseball

And the second game hasn't even started yet!

The Dominican Republic rallied in the bottom of the 18th inning to defeat Venezuela by a score of 4-3. What a baseball game! The Puerto Rico-Mexico game was supposed to start at 7:30, but the games are played on the same field, and the first game did not finish until 9:30. Still waiting for the second game to begin.

MLB.TV is having the usual technical difficulties. I got a picture and no sound for the last three hours. Seriously, Major League Baseball makes billions of dollars a year. They could afford to spend a little money on getting someone who knows what they're doing to run MLB.TV. The thing is that when you call customer support, you're on hold for at least 45 minutes before you even talk to someone, who assumes you're a technology moron and asks stupid questions like "Do you have your speakers plugged in?"
