Don't tell me the best players are playing

They arne't

The lack of Strasburg or HArper on this team is a HUGE blow
I would put Wright over Headley, also would put Kemp & McCutchen over Stanton as well. To me, the difference making is the pitching though.

Look at a list of the top 10 starting pitchers in the MLB, probably only one won't be American - Felix Hernandez. Yet, none of those pitchers are playing in this tournament. Only one I'd consider is Dickey, but he is a borderline top 10 pitcher, only has had one really good year. Go even further, check out the top 20 starting pitchers in the league - There would be maybe 3 non-Americans on the list (Hernandez, Cueto, Gallardo)
