Willie Bloomquist is on the US National Team?  This is surely a sign of the irreversible decline of America.  We are doomed.

Perkins is an awesome reliever for the Twinkies.  I like Pestano, Perkins, and Timmeh Collins among the "who's he" non-closers.

They were going to let Youk, Kinsler, and a bunch of guys who families haven't been in Judea for 2000 years play for Israel had Spain not knocked them out in qualifying.  The Italian team has always had Italian Americans like Piazza and Grilli.  Congrats to Espi.

I loved the last WBC, I jumped on the Dutch bandwagon like many others. I see that WBC teams are going to be playing against MLB teams during Spring Training.
