SANTIAGO, D.R.–The fans of the Dominican Republic will celebrate a Caribbean Series victory no matter what. It’s just a matter of figuring out which team–Aguilas or Licey–will be crowned champion.
Aguilas downed Mexico 4-1 on Tuesday night, making their Thursday night rematch against Licey crucial.
But Aguilas needs to get past Venezuela today, and has Bartolo Colon on the mound.
I will blog more from the ballpark, but I received another cryptic text message early this morning to be at the same hotel, as another workout takes place at 10 a.m. local time. Hopefully we’ll have some more July 2 information . . .
