I think Harden is injured.

But Diamond and Dempster would be huge. Even Francis would be an improvement on what we have.

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)
Dickey has had three good seasons in a row. The month good year is a myth because of his wins. But if you break down the stats and look, he's been great for 3-years.
