    Probably the same as I would have, except I'd pick Pedroia over Uggla.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I like dougdirt's list but I'd go with Kershaw over Lee and Pedroia over Uggla.

    I wouldn't have much of an issue with Kershaw at all. I honestly picked the pitchers without looking at anything, just kind of did that one from memory.

    My roster would consist of NCAA all-stars whom actually want to be there.

    College players would be seriously overmatched using wooden bats against the professional pitchers from Puerto Rico, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, Japan, and Korea.

    the pitchers part is somewhat easy,

    Chris Carpenter, Adam Wainwright, Zack Grienke, Jeff Samardzija, Matt Garza.
    bullpen- joel hanrahan, jason grilli, jason motte... i completely ignore all reds pitcher's and roll with these pitchers...with the message to the manager...NO PITCH COUNTS!

    I'd have to give the position players a little more thought.

    Evidently, Team Israel manager Brad Ausmus has contacted Ryan Braun and Kevin Youkilis about playing for Israel. Shawn Green and Gabe Kapler have already agreed to be coaches, and may decide to be player/coaches. Scott Schoeneweis has not yet decided whether to be a coach, a player, or both.

    In the future Canada is just northern America and his future ID shows him as an American citizen.
