    US vs japan in Global World Series by 2012?

    ESPN - The United States and Japanese baseball champions could meet in a Global World Series, Japanese daily Nikkan Sports reported Thursday.

    Nippon Professional Baseball commissioner Ryozo Kato was quoted as saying his Major League Baseball counterpart, Bud Selig, had agreed the winners of the two countries' professional leagues should play each other.

    "I was surprised, Mr. Selig said he wants to realize the plan before his tenure ends," Kato told Nikkan Sports.

    Selig is scheduled to retire in 2012

    This would actually be really entertaining.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    I wonder if this would make the Nippon League more competitive with salaries and cause them to get more talent. It would be nice to see the Japanese, Korean, and Taiwanese leagues combine to one large league, then you would almost have a true world series....

    Except that as a Cubs fan, I've usually tailed off by the World Series.

    Sad, but true

    that would be freakin awesome, do we really have to call it the global world series? if this happened it could legitimately be called THE WORLD SERIES
