But as long as a few of those pitchers decide to play, USA has a great top end of SP's.

As a Met fan, I will never forget being excited to watch Oliver Perez pitch for Mexico in one of their first few games; yes, that's pretty sad now that I think of it. But then he couldn't throw strikes, and got absolutely lit up. Don't think he made it out of the first inning against Australia.
You also had ESPN trying to marginalized the WBC - something they broadcast - by saying they should be using minor leaguers.
