Italians knock off Canada at WBC

Per the Canadian Press, Italy upset Canada in the World Baseball Classic on Monday night.

One of the Italian pitchers in the game, Jason Grilli, does play for the Colorado Rockies. But the Canadian roster is stocked with major league all-stars such as Justin Morneau and Jason Bay, making the outcome a surprise internationally.

Canadian twitterers are a bit edgy about the loss.
