U.S. WBC title or your favorite team winning the Series?

There was an interesting topic on the radio Wednesday night.
The host asked callers if they would rather see the United States win the World Baseball Classic or have their favorite team win the World Series.

Me? I'd like to think I'm pro-U.S. and patriotic.
However, if you think the WBC is nothing more than a glorified Little League tournament, then it makes it a lot easier to keep rooting for your favorite team. Especially if your favorite team is the Pirates and they haven't had a winning season since 1992.
Heck, I might even opt for the Bucs winning 82 games this year.
What's your choice?

There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
