Mexico was eliminated from the World Baseball Classic under somewhat murky circumstances earlier this week. They finished 1-2 in their pool, good for a three-way tie with Italy and Venezuela. All three teams finished 1-1 in head-to-head play, so the next tiebreaker, runs allowed per defensive inning, came into play.…
Losing to Mexico by four runs in the bottom of the ninth, Italy didn’t come to mess around.

Did you hear? Donald J. Trump is in Mexico for a last minute, pre-immigration speech visit right now. It’s an objectively terrible idea for everyone involved—we can’t wait!
This election has been an objective nightmare, but at long last, we finally have some good news. In a little over 12 hours, Donald Trump could be heading to Mexico. And if Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has even a sliver of a heart, he’ll let him in. Because god knows we need this.

Venezuela and Mexico are both going to advance to the quarterfinals of the Copa America, but the winner gets to avoid Argentina, so both teams have plenty to play for. The Venezuelans struck first and took a 1-0 lead thanks to José Velázquez going all upside down and smashing it past José Corona.
The video you see above shows a couple Uruguay players haranguing the referees immediately after their 3-1 loss against Mexico in the Copa America on Sunday.
