USA again falls short at the WBC

The question is: What does it all mean for United States baseball?
Adam Jones and the United States again fell short of their expectations at the World Baseball Classic. The Americans still have not won the WBC – or even reached the final – in three tries.
USA baseball fans will have to put down their flags when the World Baseball Classic final four comes to San Francisco this weekend. The Dominican Republic, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico and two-time WBC champion Japan will be there, but the United States will not.
Ultimately, it was a frustrating tournament for Jimmy Rollins and the United States at the 2013 World Baseball Classic. They rallied to reach the second round, then their bats went quiet as they failed to reach the semifinals for the second time in three tournaments.
In his first year as manager of the United States at the World Baseball Classic, the Americans suffered the same fate as their first two tournaments – short of the finals. “When you play double-elimination, it’s a crapshoot,” Torre said.
