The inaugural World Baseball Classic is over, and one can presume that the flag-waving, sign-holding Japanese fan base has finally strolled giddily away from San Diego's Petco Park wearing smiles and plenty of official Classic merchandise. So now that it is done, what has the Classic - the 16-team international tournament dreamed up by baseball commissioner Bud Selig and plunked down in the middle of spring training - taught us? Well, most obviously, Americans aren't as openly passionate about the sport - or at least this preconceived version - as those in baseball-crazy outposts around the world.

Seeking to fill what has become the team's most glaring deficiency, the Orioles have engaged in talks with the Toronto Blue Jays regarding shortstop David Eckstein, according to industry sources. Eckstein, 33, is hitting .273 with one home run and 18 RBIs in 198 at-bats. However, he has become expendable on a roster that includes infielders Marco Scutaro, John McDonald and Joe Inglett, who has seen his role increase with regular second baseman Aaron Hill injured. Because of the glut of middle infielders, the Blue Jays' asking price for Eckstein isn't expected to be too high.
