lol.. you act like USA is the only missing players. Your roster is missing players yet you still have a quality MLB team roster. Maybe even better. Vogelsong, Dickey, Bell, Holland, and Gonzalez is still a pretty decent pitching staff. You have two starting MLB catchers, four good OFs, and 4 good IFs. Sure, a lot of those players wouldn't be there with a full roster, but they are still quality replacements.
Look at us Canadians, we're missing most of our best players and the only guys we have to replace them are A-AA guys. We have like 4 regular MLB players and a bunch of call-ups.
Canada is missing Bay, Kottaras, Martin, Nickeas (plus the injured Lawrie). Our starters is the biggest hit, we're missing Harden, Dempster, Francis, Bedard, and Diamond. Plus, our staff could definitely use Crain, Richmond, and Hawksworth.
Our lineup is this;
Our starting pitchers for the 1st round are;
Erik Bedard/Jeff Francis
We're starting a freaking A-ball guy against the USA because of all the guys who turned down invites to come.
USA isn't the only team hurting. Team USA is still ranked #2 in the tournament, despite the roster.
