Jones gives some commentary with the MLB Tonight crew. Effusive praise for Yelich. Also praises Crawford as "one of the big factors" in Team USA's championship performance. Describes the WBC as basically a very special experience.

Man - this thing is just fun.  The Latin American teams/fans bring out the fun in baseball with all of their emotion.  Puerto Rico...coming back out onto the field after the loss...tipping their caps to the US team and all the fans...just awesome.  What a great event.  Baseball's regular season needs some more fun in it...maybe they can get some ideas from this.

I've been a fan of the wbc since the beginning. Had kidney stones back in 2006 when they were playing so I was laid up watching the games. It was a fun, novel thing back then but it's much bigger now, much more exciting all the way around. Glad the USA brought it home...I always thought it was kinda embarrassing that we never won it before, but it just makes this even sweeter, and to have Adam Jones front and center during it, even better. Already looking forward to 2021.

It's ok to celebrate, pump the fist on a big strikeout, whatever.

Exactly.  What gets lost is that these guys DO understand the respect for the game and the opponent.  They just like to have fun too.

I really wish I had the time available the last couple days to watch these games. Missed the semis and the final.

Molina sounds like a baby here.

The Os play the Cards this year. Wonder if Yadi will call for AJ to wear one.

Nobody wants to say it, but I think this is one of the easiest quick fixes that would have a positive influence on the MLB.

I love Molina's pride, but he needs to chill out.
