You would think the Dominican pitcher got the last out of game 7 of the World Series the way he was acting... mean.gif

The DR are good as hell, but damn they are the cockiest/most annoying team I've ever seen. If it weren't a close game I would've put a couple pitches in their dudes backs for how arrogant they are. But I guess that's just how they play over there.

The dug out emptying for every run is like little league mixed with storming the court in college basketball - ridiculous but fun

It's not like DR is giving the ball to well known pitchers while USA sends out a Cy young winner in Dickey. Also look at the Outfielders of both teams USA is better Stanton, Jones, Braun vs Cruz, DeAza (lol), LF?

People always act like USA has a team of bums. Kimbrel got rocked he gave up 2 earned runs while he only gave up 7 ER all of last year.
post #10095 of 77558
Theyre not bums but if we played our best players. We would win it easily.


Shane Victorino is on this team laugh.gif
post #10096 of 77558
DR is still missing Pujols, Bautista, Beltre, and Big Papi to name a few, so they don't have their A team out there either.

Yeah, Harper already committed to playing in 2017 though...if that counts for anything haha

Did Harper actually turn it down though? He was actually asked to play?

And 2017 is a long ways away, so he will probably develop into one of the best players in the game by then.....but now, if all of our top US guys committed to play, I dont see how Harper is on the team:

Matt Kemp
Andrew McCutchen
Ryan Braun
Josh Hamilton
Giancarlo Stanton
Mike Trout

I dont see Harper as a top American outfielder yet.

What about the pitchers ?

Keyshaw
Cain
Verlander

US would be unbeatable.

McKutchen
Posey


Most of the elite players are not playing. Because nobody cares about the WBC
post #10101 of 77558
I can never take team usa seriously when we trot RA Dickey out there...

Wish USA players cared enough so we can see top pitchers in it.


Kershaw, Verlander, Price would have been nice.

Hooe DR wins it all tho pimp.gif love watching them play

I want DR to play the Netherlands in the next round so that we can get revenge for 09.

True, although in '06 the US did have a nice roster.  It'll never reach World Cup status, which is why I think they should coordinate it with the Winter Olympics.  Even though it's not a winter sport, I think attaching the Olympics to it would make it appeal to more players...

I think the fact that the US players don't really care is what hurts it for us. It's huge in other countries so they take it seriously. Wouldn't mind seeing bigger MLB players step up and play on USA.

Yeah he actually did. But all of our top guys declined so they asked Harper who also declined which led to Shane Victorino and Ben Zobrist being on the roster.

You could also add Strasburg, Cain, CC, Jered Weaver, Max Scherzer, Wainwright (if he regains his form)
