They have a website now: http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/wbc/index.jsp

Seems interesting, I'll probably watch, also interesting how it overlaps with Spring Training.

My native Italians have tough work ahead of them being grouped with the Dominican Republic and Australia

I will be watching this. Baseball America projected the rosters (http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/news/050511worldcuprosters.html) a couple months ago. Have they announced the the parks and the TV schedule yet?

C—Jason Varitek (Red Sox)
1B—Todd Helton (Rockies)
2B—Jeff Kent (Dodgers)
3B—Scott Rolen (Cardinals)
SS—Alex Rodriguez (Yankees)
LF—Lance Berkman (Astros)
CF—Jim Edmonds (Cardinals)
RF—Gary Sheffield (Yankees)
DH—Barry Bonds (Giants)
SP—Roger Clemens (Astros)
SP—Mark Prior (Cubs)
SP—Ben Sheets (Brewers)
SP—Mark Mulder (Cardinals)
RP—Billy Wagner (Phillies)
Manager: Bobby Cox (Braves)

Not sure when these were made out, but I would put Lee at 1B and Roberts at 2nd. Buehrle should be in there along with Halladay over Mulder and Prior. I like Wagner closing
