Default USA versus Puerto Rico thread...elimination game

USA lineup:

Rollins, SS
Phillips, 2B
Braun, LF
Mauer, C
Stanton, RF
Zobrist, 3B
Hosmer, 1B
Jones, CF
Victorino, DH

Vogelsong pitching, can't complain about the lineup, and I love Zobrist at third despite the lack of play there.

If you haven't heard Wright's out of the WBC and may start the MLB season on the DL.

For Puerto Rico:

Pagan, CF
Feliciaano, LF
Beltran, DH
Molina, C
Aviles, SS
Rios, RF
Rivera, 1B
Gonzalez, 3B
Falu, 2B

Hope they crush Figueroa, don't really like the guy.

Bryce Harper volunteered to replace Wright on the roster, should have dumped Victorino haha.

Who, Wright? Can't replace a man on the roster mid-round, so if they make it past this round, could replace him. Believe Headley said he wants to play.

The only Yankee on the roster went down. This is why Team USA sucks no Yankees.

A bunch of players probably want to get in now if the USA makes it past but doubt they take off guys like Hosmer, Victorino, since made promises to them. Only Wright's spot will be up for grabs and they'll want a "real 3B."

MLBnetwork announcers saying it will indeed be Headley, but the other day they didn't know how the Marlins sculpture in CF worked. So...yeah.

Looks accurate so far. I can not believe this guy is the the third best starter USA could get to participate.

Vogelsong = Vogelwrong tonight

Bobby Cox should've been the Team USA manager not Torre. And that coming from a Yankees fan.

I heard that Clayton Kershaw regrets not playing... as a Dodgers fan I wish he did play despite any injury risk.

didn't say anything about guaranteeing anything just that they would've been better. The Yankees bat boy would be better than Bloomquist.

I get why there weren't more Yankees just saying.....

Well, not many options. Jeter=injured, bad choice, Cano=DR, Youkilis=bad, Granderson=injured, Sabathia just had his first start.

Can't really think of anyone besides a guy like Robertson.

This team is getting no-hit by Nelson Figueroa! Ridiculously embrassing.

All the commentators talk about is how great the US is during BP. Pretty pathetic showing so far.

Offense is anemic. Just turned on the game, and if someone told me Volgesong would be pitching as well as he did, I would be 100% sure the US would be in front.
