The first two games

Cantuswinging

Let’s start todays blog with the game against Team USA. First of all I was very nervous. I got the adrenaline flowing as soon as I woke up that day. Just to let you know, I couldn’t eat before the game. I was so pumped for that game and now the people in Mexico know what kind of quality we have. Team USA got away with a win. We both have good pitching staffs and the game was very close, but they were a little better on that day.

Next up for us was South Africa. Everything went well for us and we won 10-4. I hit my first home run of the Classic. I am starting to get into that rhythm and get in season shape. The rest of the lineup is getting loose with the bats and looking relaxed at the plate and thankfully we hit well against South Africa. We hope it’s the beginning of good things to come and we score a lot of runs. Today’s game with Canada will be a great match just like the game against the USA.

Today we win or we go home, it’s just that easy. And I don’t think anyone wants to go home yet. Whoever wins is going to the next round for sure, and Canada doesn’t want to lose to us. So we we’re going to go out there and bust our butts. Everyone is going to do his part and hopefully we do it together and wrap it up.

The best part has been the Mexican fans. They come from back home to support us and they realize what kind of baseball we are playing. They have been really supportive and that’s the most important thing for me. I want to thank all the Mexican fans, because we are playing for them and our country.

another homer tonight! congrats.

Congratulations on your performance in the WCB – I enjoyed watching you and the spirit that the Mexican fans brought to the game vs USA. That is something that a lot of American fans don’t show. I also like the opportunity to see many players that I typically don’t have the opportunity to see. Good luck the rest of the way and to an excellent 2006 season

Hey Jorge! You’re right that in MEXICO its not all about soccer theres huge baseball fans too like me. Im a huge fan of yours and you are my favorite player because you are mexican and you play 2B and you are a superstar on the rise. I want to congratulate you and the MEXICO team in the WBC. I hope everybody now sees how good MEXICO is in baseball and that we do have talent. Good luck in this round and the rest of the tourney and the ’06 season. See you this sunday in Anaheim. Take care and keep doing what you’re doing. Y VIVA MEXICO!!!!!!!!

Congrats to team Mexico on moving on to the second round. I will admit though that as much as I’d like to see Mexico do well in the Classic, I’m looking forward to seeing Cantu back in the lineup for the Rays. Hopefully playing in all these All Star games instead of the basic spring training will get you in top form for opening day. The Rays are doing good so far but there’s just no replacing the best second baseman in baseball. Go win that Classic for your country and come back to Tampa happy and healthy.

-Jorge- I know you already know how devoted i am to you so i figured i would reply to every blog. You seem to be getting back to your usual hitting routine. i❤ ya!!!❤ Megan aka Future Mrs.Cantu

HOLA, PARA DESEARTE MUCHA SUERTE Y EXITO EN ESTE SEGUNDA RONDA, PARA TI Y PARA TODOS LOS DEMAS PELOTEROS DE NUESTRO PAIS, VERAN QUE BIEN SERAN RECIBIDOS CUANDO VUELVAN PARA MEXICO, DESPUES DE LA TEMPORADA GRANDE.
A GANAR
