As the World Baseball Classic rolls through spring, the powerhouses will make themselves known. Will there be a country that seemingly comes out of nowhere to capture the crown? Will Japan three-peat? Can the United States finally step up and prove its prowess as a world power in baseball? There are story lines everywhere you look.

Be sure to keep up with SB Nation for all the WBC news, but as a way of kicking off the week, we've got today's World Baseball Classic games. Sure, you might have to wake up earlier than normal (or stay up later), but it's baseball. Love every second of it. Pull an all-nighter. Root for countries you never knew existed. Enjoy the World Baseball Classic this week!
