    Team USA announces 30 man roster

    Here's a link. It will be interesting to see how the OF alignment pans out. Assuming Junior gets CF by default, I'm guessing it will be Wells in RF and Damon in LF. Also, I would think that Michael Young may get some time at 2B ahead of Chase Utley.

    How did I miss that Wily Mo Pena was playing?

    edit: for the DR, I mean.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I have not paid a whole lot of attention to the rules for this deal, so that may very well be the case.

    Matt Holliday and Randy Winn as OFs?

    On a side note, I'm starting to the think Cuba's going 0-3. Got to figure they're drawing Javy Vazquez, Bruce Chen and either Makr Mulder or Dan Haren as opposing starters.

    With a 65 pitch limit, that's good for 5 innings max.

    I would rather they listed the player's parent team than the place he was born. In actuality, he may have spent very little time in that place so it adds little, unless it's an attempt to prove each is an American citizen.

    David Wright, Eric Chavez.. Ben Sheets didn't make the final roster? Interesting.

    Sheets chose not to play.

    The Dominican Repulic should win if their best players are all playing for them. The USA team is kind of poor considering who they could have had. I think that a lot of the guys that chose not to play, should have. I know it's their choice but I feel like it's always the US teams that don't send their best players.

    14 pitchers seems a bit much considering the format and a 4 man rotation. It looks to me like Buck wanted maximum defensive flexibility. Chipper can play LF, 4 guys who can play CF, Young at 2b/ss, ARod at 3b/ss, Barrett can play 1B, etc.

    Someone mentioned a 65 - pitch limit. If that is the case, that is why all the pitchers. And Dontrell can hit too, so he is like an added bench player.
