The Mn Twins/Washington Senators had some great
Cuban players- Camilo Pascual, Pedro Ramos, Tony
Oliva, Zoilo Versalles.

Jozy didn't look so good in the short time I
watched. Then he was subbed at the half. What's up
with that?

El Duque and Contreras were some others, but the main
player I remember watching as a kid was Tiant. Loved his
windup where he turned before throwing the pitch. There was
a good documentary about when he returned to Cuba, think it
was one from the 30 for 30 series.

we were trying new things (i think 8 new starters from first
game). that being said, it was Haiti and we should have killed
them with a B team. we were lucky to win in some respects.
although we controlled possession, they actually had better
scoring chances. i don't like Mix in the role he played and
Zardes was on most of the night but he blew a couple of
chances. Jozy has no left foot (or at least i assume so as he
refuses to shoot with it). Zusi looks like he has lost a step and
Aron Jo looks lost to me. we won the game because Guzan
made some saves but no one stepped up in my opinion.

They definitely need to play much better if they are getting to
the final. I think they will make it there but they need to start
getting their act together, barely winning vs Haiti isn't what was
expected. Luckily we have Dempsey who has been saving our
ass as usual.

Agree about Guzan also, he has made some big saves and is
the other key player along with Bradley to get us to the final.

I'm still surprised Feilhaber didn't get a look. The issues he had in the past (90 minute fitness, defensive grit) are at least adequate, if not strengths.

I'm not surprised they've had problems. They spent the 3 months coming into the tournament playing big time teams who weren't about to bunker like most of the teams in CONCACAF will when they play the US. Even though they won 4-0 against Guatemala, they didn't look that great. I have to imagine they'll adjust just in time for Mexico, who won't play like that at all.

Additionally, I'm not a Beckerman fan boy. Yeah, he has a lot of intangibles that are helpful for playing deep in the midfield, but he gets dispossessed in dangerous spots waaaay too often, and he's slower than Christmas. I wish they'd brought in Kitchen to give him an extended look in the Group stage at least.

Guzan making some great saves in the USA-PAN game,
currently 1-1 score and should be a wild finish.

Dempsey will get the winner, has to do it himself usually anyways ...

Guess he needed a little help, and didn't get it.

Draw is disappointing, but oh well, as long as we get off the bus we'll make it to the final.

Good teams in meaningless games in Cups often
don't get results. I'm thinking of Italy when they
won the World Cup a few years ago. The USA tied
them, but the game was meaningless for Italy. Had
they needed a result they might have gotten one.

Altidore off the squad for the rest of the
tournament.
