Japan finished undefeated in Group B but it wasn’t the breeze that I expected for the two-time champs.
Let’s see if this one is.
This is a bad matchup for the Netherlands. Now that’s a team that has some talent and can play with most anybody, most anybody but Japan.
It’s a different game Samurai Japan plays, and unless you’re really ready for it and really talented, the Japanese will beat you. What I see in the Netherlands is a team that wants to play like the Americans but can’t.
The US has enough trouble with Japan itself, I really, really, really don’t see the Dutch making this one close. Japan won this very same matchup 16-4 in 2013.
I’ve already said everything that I really feel like I need to say about this one. The Netherlands’ offense just doesn’t impress me the way it does others and you just know Japan will find ways to score against its pitching.
Again, terrible matchup for the Dutch here. Just terrible.
Free Japan vs. Netherlands WBC Prediction: Japan wins big.
Even if Japan isn’t as good as it was in 2013 (and it didn’t sweep a pool that year), I’m still not sweating this one at all.
