“Chicharito” continues to add to goal count

ESPNfc – Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez’s goal on Friday against Costa Rica in World Cup qualifying wasn’t the be-all and end-all when it comes to his status as a Mexico legend. But the goal — which brings him temporarily level with Jared Borgetti on 46 goals — means that Hernandez’s place as Mexico’s top scorer is consolidated. And considering “Chicharito” is still only 28 and likely has two more World Cups in him, it will be a long time before anyone overtakes his eventual haul at the top of the list.

“Chicharito” might not be Mexico’s best, but …

ESPNfc – At age 28, Javier “El Chicharito” Hernandez could end the international break as the top scorer in the history of the Mexico national team, a statistic that may or may not be significant, but at the end of the day shows the kind of goal scorer and player with whom Mexican soccer has been blessed.

Fox Sports – Mexico are feeling good right now.

Mexico protests ruling in baseball classic

NYT – It was around 4:45 p.m. on Monday when the first sign emerged that Mexico had lost its protest over the way it was eliminated from the first round of the World Baseball Classic. For that was when Venezuela, and not Mexico, took the field at Estadio de Béisbol Charros de Jalisco y Atletismo for pregame stretching and batting practice.
