WBC goodies, week ending 3-8-2013

Here are some pictures and stuff from this week's World Baseball Classic games. It's mostly Simba, because he's been a star for his country.

As someone mentioned on Twitter (I'm sorry I can't remember who), he's not helping our Infield Fly case. ;) This was a really impressive play, though.

Finally, this video of Maddux from January - he looks exactly the same - and aww, Meds isn't in the game anymore. (Don't blame him, of course. Family first.)

Wait, no, this is the last thing.

How tall is Jimmy Rollins?? Kimmie is, like, normal man height. Is JRoll 5'7" or something?? (I just looked it up and he's listed at 5'8", so that must be his height in cleats. I seriously had no idea he was closer to Jose Altuve than 6'.)
