You've got to be mad that the best players don't want in on this thing. If Verlander and CC were pitching, the US would be unstoppable.
Ummm, you have the reigning Cy Young award winner, a World Series winning pitcher today, Ryan Braun, Jimmy Rollins, Joe Mauer, David Wright, Giancarlo Stanton. Hardly a dearth of talent. The combined all star appearances of the roster would dwarf any other team.

I still can't get over pubic face Romo's attempt to look scary by mad-dogging someone.

How embarrassing that it took Leon three pitches to hit him?

Why don't they have this tournement in July? Shut down MLB for 2 weeks and thus force the US audience to watch.

Make it a best on best when all the players are playing their best instead of when they are cleaning out the spring training cobwebs.

Also, no Jeter makes me sad. I know that first of all he's hurt, and secondly if they sent their best team he's probably not starting anyway, but my point is it makes me sad.

This tournament has a long ways to go before it's worth paying attention to.

Many talented players like Posey and Trout are simply not playing

If that roster was up there the USA would be elite in baseball, but teams don't want to risk their stars getting injured. Real shame. USA could be really good if we put our best players in the WBC
Well sadi.

Ideal Team USA lineup: C Posey, 1B Prince, 2B Pedroia, SS Tulo, 3B Headley, LF Braun, CF Trout, RF Stanton. Only Braun, Stanton are playing.
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

So you won't deny that this team isn't as good as it could be
