    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    I always enjoy the WBC especially now with Phillips in it. It would be cool to see Justin Verlander be on the team.

    A tricky area with pitchers though. I am almost thinking they should go with "high end" double A pitchers and have them start their spring training around this time of year.

    Heyman reports that Team USA still has a shot at its ace:

    Though Tigers ace Justin Verlander hasn’t made a final decision, there is said to be new optimism that Verlander will join the Team USA for the WBC, baseball sources said. Verlander will decide by February 20 whether he can take a final pitching spot on the USA team. "

    There is, however, no truth to the rumor that in the next summer Olympics, the Netherlands will be represented in basketball by the Haarlem Globetrotters.
