We've had a difficult time figuring out the right way to make ourselves appropriately excited about the upcoming World Baseball Classic — and those freaky ads with the flags superimposed on players' faces didn't help much — but the gang at Game Four have come up with a helpful trick: Brackets!

Yep, the nifty geometrical device that has made the month of March tolerable for decades can now be transferred to the WBC. It's a little complicated, and you'll probably have to come up with your own weird set of rules if you're going to have any kind of bracket pool, but it's a start. It's certainly more likely to get us to watch than the notion of seeing Roger Clemens throw 30 pitches is.

You can print out your own larger bracket copy after the jump or just by clicking here.
