Default World Baseball Classic

I noticed our "Rocket" thread was kind of turning towards the WBC - so why not start a thread?
Does anyone have the other rosters? Curious to see Venezula's and the Dominican Republic's line-ups

Like I said before, the DR is stacked. Big Papi, Manny, Tejada, Colon, Pujols. USA has a pretty nice team also. I love the pitchers - Clemens, Peavy, Willis, Sabathia.

You know, a lot of people are dismissing the WBC, but I'm actually looking forward to it. It's a very good thing for its sake ESPN picked up the broadcast rights. I will say, however, if the US gets an early elimination (which is entirely possible) this thing will die.

I'm looking forward to it... just helps pass the time until MLB starts. I can't wait for Baseball. No NHL coverage out here, and NBA is soooo boring these days.

I, too, am looking forward to the WBC. With no Olympics to look forward to, I hope this becomes an annual event. We'll see if it gets the viewers though.

It will only last until the first major pitching injury. Because once that happens the owners will be against it for years to come and pitchers deals will probablly say they can't pitch in this thing. So hopefully all the big guys stay injury free.
