Bud Lite's worst nightmare

Baseball commissioner Bud Selig's baby -- the World Baseball Classic -- may wind up being a nightmare for the commish.

On Sunday, the United States was on the verge of losing to Japan before a controversial overturned call and the first piece of timely hitting by Alex Rodriguez in eons helped Team USA beat Japan 4-3.

Had the overturned sacrifice fly stood, the U.S. may be looking up again at the top of its pool, praying for help to advance to the next round.

Instead, all the help the Red, White and Blue needed was from the blue shirts calling balls, strikes and outs.

Clearly, though, the color of the moment is black -- the same color this event's eyes may become.

Who has a problem with this? This is the United States. It's our tournament. We are the best in the world at everything. If the Japanese wan't to come over here and beat us, they'll have to try a little harder.
Japan didn't lose. It got screwed. But there's always the LPGA Tour.
