Isn't this tough to do since any player can seemingly represent any country?

Yeah I heard Piazza can represent Italy since he is from Italian descent.

I can't wait for AJ to face Jenks when Team Poland faces Team Mountain Man

Rich Harden was born in Canada, so I don't think he'll be on Team USA unless he wants to be as popular as Brett Hull in Canada.

I don't know what's funnier. He picked his fantasy first base coach or Jerry Manuel is his fantasy first base coach.

Hahaha gotta love it. :D:

I forgot the teal. I thought it was funny as did the others on why you went so far to pick base coaches.

Mike Scoissia would make a better 1st base coach than Jerry Manuel.

When you have to guess what country a guy is from, the tournament is a farce. Hopefully no one pays attention to this thing and it disappears after a year.

Amen. And my ideal roster includes zero White Sox players, as I have no desire to risk injury or interfere with anyone's normal preparation for the season.

My roster is nonexistent because I think is a horrible idea. It's like a gigantic all-star game with country's represented instead of leagues. It's not like the best MLB players are playing against the best Korean League players or best Japanese league players. It's a dumb idea.
