WBC Dream Team

I find it insanely difficult to pretend to care — let alone genuinely care — about the WBC. Thankfully, there are guys like FanHouse’s Matt Snyder around who do. Matt has put together a Team USA roster which, at first blush, looks pretty darn good.

My only quibble is a political one: I’d have Youkilis and Howard as my first basemen. Not because of skill, necessarily, but because I’d really like to have a Jewish and a black player lead our team to victory and really stick it to that dirtbag Hitler.

Like I said, I really don’t follow the WBC all that closely.

Not to mention Mel Gibson:

Hamilton has announced he’s not playing, so there is a roster shake-up right away.

Rob – You beat me to the punch.  I love that blurb and laugh ever time I listen to it. 

As for a young little Adolf Hitler (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081217/ap_on_fe_st/odd_hitler_cake) I think he may be a little too young to care about dominating the WBC.  His parents should be brought up on some type of charges for what they are doing to he and his siblings.

I went to the first WBC, when the US played Japan at Angels Stadium. It was pretty cool to see so many Japanese fans there without most of the Mariners. Ichiro hit a linedrive homer to start the game. Ken Griffey Jr. was up with a chance to win it all, but he ground out. A-Rod hit the game-winning single, and everyone was disappointed.
