    WBC Preview: Pool A

    Pool A, which is set to get the tournament underway on March 6th from the Gocheok Sky Dome in South Korea, will see some tight competition as well as a number of the most intriguing WBC storylines. Long time rivals South Korea and Chinese Taipei get a fresh chance to clash, with each facing roster turmoil while the Netherlands enters with a newfound target on their back following their cinderella run to the semifinal in 2013. The “Blue Goblins” (파란 도깨비) enter the tournament as the heavy favorites in Pool A, with the #3 ranked team in the world looking to rebound from a disappointing 9th place finish in the 2013 Classic which saw them bounced from opening round pool play despite a 2-1 record.
